And if you ask Lauren, Kane owes his singing career to Ms. Alaina herself.
In fact, Lauren is the first person to ever hear Kane sing, because they both grew up together in Rossville, Georgia.
Alaina tells ABC News Radio that Brown was extremely shy in school, but she heard him humming during chorus class in 7th grade.
“And I was like, ‘Uh, can you sing?’” she explains. “And he was like ‘I don’t sing in front of people.’”
Well that changed when she coerced him into singing for his chorus teacher; the song he sang was “I Can Only Imagine” from Christian group MercyMe.
Now, Lauren teases Kane that SHE was the only who got him to sing.
Well, it paid off, ‘What Ifs’ is already in the Top 20 on the country charts and moving up.
