Often known for crossing genres and pushing boundaries, Kane Brown proves that he can truly rock a 90s country-inspired anthem on his latest single. He released “Like I Love Country Music” on Friday morning (May 6).

Brown previously teased the song on his social media channels when he shared a sweet video of him dancing with one of his daughters to it. Kingsley Rose, 2, smiled and giggled the whole time. Brown wanted fans to know three things, writing in his caption: “This will be the new radio single (like I love country music),” “thank you [Brooks & Dunn],” and “this little girl is to damn cute.”

Making a virtual appearance on The Bobby Bones Show, Brown shared stories behind the new song, which has been in his catalog since 2019. But at that time, he wasn’t ready to release “Like I Love Country Music.” When Brown recently toured with Restless Road, the band heard the song and encouraged the “One Mississippi” singer to release it. Brown also revealed that his wife, Katelyn, sings a song with him on his upcoming album.

Brown’s new song is packed with references to country icons that fans will know and love. He sings on the new track: “You get me high as Willie, girl/ You get me gone as Jones/ You turn me on as much as I turn on my radio/ Let’s take our time, walk the line/ Kinda like Johnny and June did/ Yeah, let’s do this/ Baby, I love you like I love country music”
