MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Up-and-coming country music artists Kane Brown and Chris Lane have been announced to appear at the Carolina Country Music Fest in 2016, coming to Myrtle Beach from June 10 to 12.
According to a news release from festival organizers: "Brown has earned his place as one of country music's breakout stars of the next generation. He gained his fan base by covering country artists on YouTube, and garnered over 5 million views per video. His debut EP, "Closer", was crowdfunded through Kickstarter in June of 2015 and scored the No. 1 spot on the iTunes country chart. Brown's rich baritone voice combined with his distinctive, contemporary style adds dimension to the diverse line-up for CCMF."
