Kane Brown made his debut performance at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo on Saturday night.
In a history-making debut, Brown played to a ticketed audience of 75,126 fans on Saturday, earning the biggest country artist debut in Houston Rodeo history and the Top 15th evening overall in paid attendance ever for the event. In a milestone moment, Kane Brown also received a surprise plaque presented by Chairman Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Jim Winne, and Joel Cowley, President/CEO Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, commemorating the official 4X Platinum certification of his No. 1 hit, “Heaven.”
“Heaven”s 4X Platinum status follows Brown’s earlier certification of his chart-topping single “What Ifs” as 4X Platinum, and makes him one of only five country artists to achieve multiple 4X Platinum singles (others include Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line, and Taylor Swift).
He shared on Instagram on Saturday night, “Tonight takes the cake on my favorite thing I’ve done so far! Houston Rodeo was absolutely incredible and I’m so grateful I had this opportunity! Just goes to show ANYTHING is possible! From bathroom cover songs to 75,000 people in Houston!!! I love my wife, my family, country radio, and of course my kick ass fans!! Thanks for making a small town kids dreams come true.”
