Kane Brown is excited to head out on his In The Air Tour, especially with Tyler Hubbard joining him on the road. Brown and Hubbard’s friendship goes back a long time, to when Brown was just getting started, and Hubbard was part of the award-winning Florida Georgia Line duo, which is why the singer is eager to tour the country again with Hubbard.
“Tyler Hubbard is coming out with me. Really pumped to have him out there,” Brown tells his record label. “A lot of high energy. He actually, him and FGL they took me out on my first tour ever. So it’d be cool to have him back on the road with us.”
The father of two is also excited to be joined by Parmalee, who was part of Brown’s first-ever arena show.
“I played acoustic and I opened for them and Granger Smith,” Brown recalls. “So another full circle moment. Really excited to have them guys out there. I just hope that they play golf, so we can get some golfing in.“

Brown’s just-released “I Can Feel It” single is already in the Top 40. The song, from Brown’s forthcoming new album, was inspired by a writing session Brown was in, when the conversation turned to iconic, legendary artists.
“We started a new album and we didn’t know if we were going to bring another single from the last album, Different Man,” Brown explains to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1. “And then we got a hold of this one. I was going to play Stagecoach, I was going to headline and we were looking for a legendary artist to come out with us. We were talking about Phil Collins, we’re talking about Cher, just random people that nobody would think about. And so we went into the writer’s room in Canada the next day and we had Phil Collins on our mind.”
Collins received a writer’s credit on “I Can Feel It,” with the song inspired by Collins’ hit single, “In The Air.”
“We started writing this song and it happens every time. I’ll live with a song for months, a year and then release it as a single,” Brown says. “But once [producer] Dann Huff got a hold of this, I told him, ‘I want it live. I want you to bring it alive as if I’m… think of me being on the road on tour. I want to be able to hear that when we’re listening to this song.’ And he just brought the magic.
“I fell in love with it,” he adds. “I was thinking about opening the show with it, but then where do you go [from] there? The energy would be so high.”
