Kane Brown Invites Movie Star On Stage, Nails Backflip During ‘Grand’

by Blake Ells

Kane Brown is having a good time on the road. The “Whiskey Sour” singer invited Taylor Lautner on stage during a recent performance. Lautner is probably best known for his role in the Twilight series. But it was a little bit of a deeper memory that Brown reminded his followers. Check out Lautner’s acrobatics in the video from TikTok below.

♬ Grand – Kane Brown

“sharkboy out here doing backflips,” Kane Brown captioned the post.

He’s referring to the 2004 film The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D, in which Lautner portrayed “Sharkboy.” It was a classic for folks of a certain age, and Kane Brown was of that age when the film was released. The films also stars Taylor Dooley as “Lavagirl.” George Lopez and David Arquette are also in the movie.

Followers loved the “Sharkboy” reference.

“The fact that you referred to him as shark boy and not Jacob,” replied one follower, referencing the Twilight role.

“Team Jacob,” said another.

The video clip is soundtracked by Kane Brown’s new single “Grand.” It’s the latest track from his forthcoming album Different Man. The album will also include a few songs that have already proven hits for Brown. “Like I Love Country Music” and “Whiskey Sour” are also among the 17-track collection. It also includes “One Mississippi” and “Leave You Alone.” The album is due on September 9.
