Kane Brown Wins First ACM Award
Kane Brown, country music star won his first ever ACM on April 14 during an interview with CBS This Morning. His music video for “Worldwide Beautiful” won the ACM for Video of the Year. Alex Alvga directed the music video, and the award goes to Alvga, Brown, and producer Christen Pinkston. This is Brown's first major country music award, and he made history being the first-ever black solo artist to win the ACM for Video of the Year. The other four nominees in the Video of the Year category were Maren Morris' "Better Than We Found It," Miranda Lambert's "Bluebird," Dierks Bentley's "Gone" and Carrie Underwood and John Legend's "Hallelujah." Brown’s album ‘Mixtape, Vol. 1 EP’ is also nominated for Album of the Year.
“I wrote this song with three of my buddies out of Nashville,” shared Brown. “We were just like ‘you know, it would be a great day when everybody could just see the beautiful in the world… we’re all a little different, but we’re all just different types of beautiful. So we just wrote a song about it. When everything started coming out in the media, we felt like it was time to release it. Our fans were asking for it. I couldn’t ask for it to come out any better than it did.”
Brown and Chris Young will perform their duet “Famous Friends,” at the 2021 ACM Awards. Keith Urban, 15-time ACM Award winner and Mickey Guyton, New Female Artist Of The Year nominee, will be co-hosting the ACM Awards. The awards will air on Sunday, April 18 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on CBS Television Network and will be streamed live and on-demand on Paramount+ and CBS All Access.
