Kane Brown, country singer and songwriter came to prominence thanks to social media but he is backing off of it now. After not receiving any CMA award nominations, Kane announced that his management would be taking over the running of his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Wednesday, after the Nominee announcements by CMA, Kane reportedly shared a gif of Stephen Curry shaking his head in dissapointment. Soon after, the Twitter account was wiped away. This is the second year in a row that Kane Brown was passed up for a CMA award nomination.
While Kane Brown certainly has made a big splash in the Country Music world the last few years, the CMA has put its foot down when it comes to handing out awards solely due to commercial achievement, and has started to value critical acclaim.
