    Kane Brown has had two number-one country albums, two top-ten country EPs and five top-ten country singles including Heaven, Lose It and Good As You. Early in the morning of October 12, Dixon, who had been Brown's drummer since 2015, lost control of his car on Interstate 24 in Tennessee and lost his life when he crashed into a tree. He was only 27. Brown has postponed his October 18 sold-out concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Tickets will be honored on the new concert date, January 9.
