It’s been nearly a decade since country star Kane Brown first appeared on music competition show The X Factor.

But that doesn’t keep us from a walk down memory lane to remember how he dazzled judges, including Simon Cowell.

In 2013, Kane Brown took to The X Factor for tryouts in an attempt to make it big. He didn’t end up as a finalist in the series, but it did jumpstart his career.

Brown did pull off an “impressive” tryout in front of judge Simon Cowell, however. You can see how that all went down in a clip that recaps it all. When he made the cut, Brown was hilariously relatable. He said he would “probably go clubbin'” to celebrate. You can relive that moment here, which should be a fun watch.

Kane Brown and his colorful history on The X Factor

Brown wasn’t so keen on staying on the show after he made it on, though. Apparently, word got around that producers were interested in having him form part of a boy band. He wasn’t interested in doing that, so he ended up leaving the show eventually. That’s a rare occasion, especially since it’s so difficult for many to get in the door when it comes to the show in the first place.

Clearly, Kane Brown didn’t have to put all of his trust and faith into The X Factor to become successful. Now, he’s enjoying several hit singles. It just goes to show you that you can make your own success. Brown has clearly made his. It should be interesting to see where all he goes from here.
