Multi-platinum, five-time American Music Award-winning (AMA) entertainer Kane Brown today announced his headlining Blessed & Free North American Tour. Beginning Friday, October 1, 2021 in Sacramento, Brown's Blessed & Free Tour visits all 29 NBA basketball arenas throughout 2021 and 2022, making the "breakthrough entertainer" (AP) the first country artist in history to headline every NBA basketball arena in a single tour. Brown first hinted about the tour during the 2020 NBA All-Star game in Chicago, a lifelong basketball fan and former four-sport high-school athlete, where he played in the NBA celebrity All-Star game. Joining the country star as he visits milestone venues from coast to coast are Jordan Davis and Restless Road. The Blessed & Free Tour visits Orlando's Amway Center Friday, December 3, 2021. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 16 at 10 a.m. ET.

Noted as the "future of country" (Billboard) and one of "31 people changing the South" (Time), the chart-topping entertainer recently earned his first Academy of Country Music (ACM) Album of the Year nomination for "Mixtape Vol. 1," as well as a Video of the Year nomination for his anthem "Worldwide Beautiful." Brown first broke through the country charts with his number one self-titled debut, which spent a record-breaking 13 weeks at the top of the chart and made Brown the first artist in Billboard history to eclipse all five Billboard Country charts simultaneously. Brown earned three AMA Awards and produced two of the most-streamed country songs of all time—the seven-time platinum number one hits "Heaven" and "What If’s." Brown's sophomore album "Experiment" debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart and solidified Brown as the only male country artist in more than 24 years to debut at the Top of the Billboard 200. "Experiment" produced back-to-back number one hits and was ranked by The New York Times as one of the Top 10 Best Albums of the Year. His latest project, "Mixtape Vol. 1," features Brown's Top 10 pop radio hit "Be Like That" featuring Khalid and Swae Lee, his co-written duet "Last Time I Say Sorry" with John Legend, and his current hit on country radio "Worship You." Fueled by Marathon (fuel tour sponsor), Blessed & Free marks the first tour for Brown since his Worldwide Beautiful Tour, which earned critical praise during its international run.
