He tried to recover from the slip in the moment but had to jump off to assess his injury. Immediately, security crowded around the star, ready to escort him backstage.
All the while, the band continued to play the next song, unsure if Kane Brown would be able to continue on. Finally, they cut the track, noticing that the singe was in severe pain.

Several videos surfaced that showed Kane Brown bent over in pain as he continued singing. Following the concert, Brown posted a video update of his ankle on Instagram, assuring Memphis fans that he would be okay. But the baseball-sized swelling on his leg seemed to tell a different story.

Just wait until you hit 30, and maybe have a few more kids Seriously though, hope you heal fast!”
