Kane Brown's star is rising in country music, though he already behaves like a seasoned pro. Case in point: The ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year nominee and CMT Music Awards host was playing a show in Kansas last week and had to think on his feet when a boot came hurling toward him.
During a concert at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., Brown was singing his 2019 hit song "One Thing Right" when a cowboy boot was chucked at the stage from the audience, striking him in the groin. It wasn't just a brush-by, either — it was one of those direct shots that end up winning the grand prize on America's Funniest Home Videos, and it looked like it hurt.
Video was captured by a fan — not the offender — and posted on TikTok:
As you can hear in the video, Brown takes about two seconds to go to the ground in pain after being struck, but keeps singing the song, though he's down-and-out on the floor.
The person who shared the video, @halieebrigman, writes:
"you good bro?!?? sorry for laughing
After the song was over, Brown acknowledged the boot, telling the crowd: “Gol-ly! Hit me with the heel! I felt that!” He then asked if the boot was expensive.
He was a good sport about it and even signed the boot and handed it back to someone in the audience. One would assume that said boot made its way back to the person that chucked it, but that part is unclear.
Brown is currently on his Drunk or Dreaming Tour which extends all the way through September.
