Just days before the launch of the North American leg of his headlining Worldwide Beautiful Tour, Kane Brown dropped by NBC’s TODAY Show for a poignant performance of “For My Daughter.”
“My dad’s been in prison since ’96, so I kind of grew up without a dad,” Brown told TODAY hosts prior to his performance. “So I knew that whenever I had a daughter, I was always going to be there for her and always be the best I could be.”
The stripped-down performance featured Brown accompanied by just a fiddle and an acoustic guitar. His distinct vocals shined as he delivered the heartfelt lyrics.
“They say dad’s are supposed to shape you and in a way I guess mine did/ I knew what I wouldn’t do if I ever had a kid/ They say history repeats it’s self well I guess that’s up to me/ I grew up without a dad I’m gonna be the best one I can be,” he sang throughout the chorus.
Brown’s wife, Katelyn, watched from his tour bus, sharing several Instagram stories as she watched with little Kingsley by her side.
“It’s about you,” she excitedly told her daughter as Brown’s interview aired in the background.
Brown co-wrote the touching ballad with Tom Douglas and Chase McGill just after he found out his wife Katelyn was pregnant.
“I wrote this song when I found out we were officially going to become parents,” he previously shared. “I meant every word, and cannot wait to watch her grow up.”
Next up, Brown will head to Atlantic City, New Jersey for the opening night of the North American leg of his headlining tour. He previously brought the show overseas with sold-out shows across Europe earlier this year.
