Kane  Brown was raised in rural northwest Georgia and the Chattanooga, Tennessee area.He is of mixed descent, his father is black and part Cherokee and his mother are white. He was, however, raised by his single mother. His family, while sometimes homeless, moved around when he was younger from Rossville to Fort Oglethorpe and LaFayette Georgia, finally settling in Red Bank, Tennessee. As a result, he attended many schools, among them Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia where he sang in the choir with Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on season 10 of American Idol. He also attended Red Bank, Ridgeland, and Soddy-Daisy High School. Kane grew up listening to country music but became interested in R&B music in middle school. However, after signing Chris Young’s “Gettin’ You Home” in his 11th grade during a school talent show and after winning the contest, he began to perform country music. Brown auditioned on both American Idol and X-Factor after the success of his school friend Lauren Alaina on Idol. He was chosen for X-Factor after an audition in 2013 but left the show when its producers wanted to include him in a boy band, after which he decided to post his cover versions of popular songs online.” Wikipedia
