Kane Brown Knows Where He Wants To Be Buried
When Kane Brown played his new song “Bury Me In Georgia” at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena last Friday (3/31), flames shot out of cannons on the stage as the crowd rose to their feet.
Before the show, Brown talked about his new song. He said, “‘Bury Me In Georgia’ is just a song about the home state that I grew up in. That’s where I want to go whenever it’s my time. Especially the Georgia Bulldogs, they’re on top of it right now.” Kane adds, “Georgia is always gonna place in my heart.”
The first verse of the song sings, “10 miles outta Chattanooga / South of that state line / There’s a no-name road off Highway 2 / Just past the welcome sign / It’s where I was born / It’s where I was raised / Ain’t sayin’ I’m ready yet / But that’s the place / I wanna be / After my last breath.”
The chorus sings, “Bury me in Georgia / Lemme rest in peace / Underneath the pines / Yeah, yeah, yeah / Where my roots run deep / When it’s my day / Put me in that clay / And remember what I told ya / When I die / Bury me in Georgia.”
Brown recently spoke with ET Canada about the new music he has been writing. “I will say I have a couple of songs that are a little bit darker about mental health, and then I have a song called ‘Learning,’ that I went a little bit more in-depth over the stuff that I went through, so I’m really excited about the music that we’re writing right now.”
Brown added, “I’ve been writing a lot of music. I actually wrote three the other day. I’m super excited about this new music, so I’m just going to keep writing. We have the No. 1 song right now, me and my wife, so I gotta get something else pretty soon.”
Kane also said that he is getting more personal with his struggles. He offered, “I’ve always been pretty open about that stuff. And the longer I’m in the business, I just get more and more comfortable [talking about it], but a lot of people are talking about it now, and I think it’s making it a little bit more easier for other people to talk about it, as well.”
