HITS Daily Double
Music City

On 6/4, BMI-repped Kane Brown celebrated his 11th #1 at Country radio with “I Can Feel It.”

Hosted by BMI and ASCAP and emceed by BMI’s Mason Hunter, the shindig saw the Sony Music Nashville/RCA Nashville star joined onstage at BMI’s Nashville office by his co-writers Jaxson Free (BMI) and Gabe Foust (ASCAP) to commemorate the milestone.

The song serves as the first #1 for Foust and second for Free, as well as the fourth #1 for Brown’s pubco Verse 2—which Foust is inked to—since the company launched four years ago. Incorporating Phill Collins’ “In the Air Tonight,” the track also marks Collins’ first career #1 at Country radio.

Additionally, Studio Bank’s Kari Barnhart made a special donation presentation during the celebration on behalf of Brown and the songwriters in support of the Boys and Girls Club of America.
