Kane Brown had a great year in music and he says he still feels like an outcast in Nashville. He admits he was bummed he wasn't nominated for Best New Artist at this year's CMA Awards. His manager says "the fans really want him, but the CMAs are industry-voted." She goes on to explain that Brown has faced an uphill battle since arriving in Nashville, “There were obviously stereotypes against him because he’s bi-racial and he has a ton of tattoos and he doesn’t look like your stereotypical country artist.”
I think he should have been nominated for best new artist, he was snubbed!
