It’s a good day to be Kane Brown.

The superstar earned two nominations for the upcoming 56th Academy of Country Music Awards. Brown secured his first-ever nominations in the Album of the Year category for Mixtape Vol. 1 and Video of the Year for “Worldwide Beautiful.”   

Brown reacted to the news on Friday morning while playing Call of Duty: Warzone on Twitch, telling his fans the nominations were “pretty sick.” 

“Woke up with two nominations,” he told fans, adding, “I’m happy.” 

Mixtape Vol. 1 was released in August and features seven tracks, including his single “Cool Again” and “Be Like That,” a collaboration with Swae Lee and Khalid. Also featured on the project is the timely “Worldwide Beautiful” and “Last Time I Say Sorry,” Brown’s duet with John Legend.

The “Worldwide Beautiful” music video was released in September and directed by Brown’s longtime collaborator Alex Alvga.

The music video shares a powerful message and also features a very special guest – his beloved daughter, Kingsley Rose.

The clip brings the song’s unifying message to life as Brown makes his way through an apocalyptic scene in a small town. The world seems to be crashing down around him, however, as the video progresses, hope emerges. Children from all walks of life gather in the downtown area as the sun begins to rise on a new day. Gorgeous flowers emerge from the streets and the sky changes color as the children come together amongst the rubbish.

At the end of the clip, the kids unite around a tarnished globe and a single flower pops up as if to signify that change is coming. The inspiring video closes with Brown holding his daughter surrounded by the other children.

After spending some time on Twitch on Friday, Brown planned to head into the studio to continue to work on his forthcoming album.
