Right now you have Bebe Rexha setting all kinds of records, and even Kane Brown getting a Guinness World Records title – seriously. To be honest, Kane Brown isn’t the person I would picture setting it. I didn’t even know this was a thing, to get a GWR title for something like this…
Kane set the Guinness World Records title for the first act to top five U.S. country charts simultaneously.
To make it official, Kane was presented with his record certificate at the Sony Music Nashville office in Nashville, Tennessee.
On achieving the record, Kane said, “It feels awesome to be a Guinness World Records title holder and to be the first artist to achieve this with Billboard. I remember being in elementary and middle school and looking at the books for all of the records, and I can’t believe my name gets to be in there now.”
On October 28, 2017, he became the title holder for the First act to top five US country charts simultaneously, including Top Country Albums (Kane Brown Deluxe Edition); Country Digital Song Sales (“Heaven”); and Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, and Country Streaming Songs (“What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina).
