Kane Brown produced one of the performances of the night at the 2023 ACM Awards ceremony in Frisco, Texas. His set followed straight after Cole Swindell's ‘She Had Me At Heads Carolina’ was crowned this year's Song of the Year.
While some suspected he'd be delivering a live rendition of his chart-topping collaboration with his wife Katelyn Brown, ‘Thank God’, Kane instead opted for his brand new single, ‘Bury Me in Georgia’.
The high-octane anthem was the perfect choice to help get the Texas crowd up onto their feet, with Kane Brown delivering the ode to his down-home roots with energy and electricity aplenty.
He strutted across the stage with a powerful concoction of confidence and charm, with Kane Brown managing to capture the drama and gravitas of the studio recording. He performed alongside an assortment of fiery red strobe lights and an army of guitarists.
The Tennessee native arrived in Frisco with a handful of nominations, with many in the audience nodding their stetson towards Kane Brown as a strong candidate for the biggest award of the evening, 2023 ACM Entertainer of the Year.
Elsewhere in the evening, viewers were treated to blistering performances from the likes of Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll, Luke Combs, Cody Johnson, HARDY, Ed Sheeran and Dolly Parton.
Parton and Garth Brooks helmed the hosting duties, with the show getting off to a hilarious start when Brooks introduced Parton as the ‘Greatest Of All Time’, or rather, The G.O.A.T., before she promptly arrived on-stage pursued by - yes, you guessed it - a goat.
