Black country music star Kane Brown will make history as the first male artist of the genre to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
After being the only country artist to receive a VMA nomination last year in the category of Video for Good for his single “Worldwide Beautiful,” Brown will perform his new single “Grand.” His third album Different Man is set to be released on September 9, 2022.
The news follows the announcement that Nicki Minaj will be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and perform at the VMAs.
Anitta, J Balvin, Marshmello x Khalid and Panic! at the Disco also will also perform at the awards show.
The VMAs will air live from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Aug. 28, 2022.
