Documentary includes Amazon Original Live EP
Amazon Music has announced an upcoming exclusive mini-documentary and live EP of Kane Brown. The doc, titled Velocity, captures Brown’s meteoric rise to superstardom, from his early days posting clips on social media, to his first headlining show at Staples Center last month, which sold out in just 90 minutes and made Brown one of the rare country stars who have played the venue.
In addition to an interview with Brown, the mini-documentary will feature conversations with his manager Martha Earls; his wife, Katelyn; agent, Braeden Rountree; day-to-day manager, Nikki Boon; tour manager, Shawn Richardson; friend, David Bliek; and his longtime friend and barber, CT Kutz. Throughout Velocity, the group reflects on the moments that led them to the Staples Center last month. Alongside the mini-documentary, an Amazon Original Live EP will launch only on Amazon Music, featuring tracks from the headlining performance.
Velocity is the fifth mini-documentary created by Amazon Music since last spring, diving into pivotal moments in artists’ careers including; Mariah Carey is Christmas: The Story of “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” Still Ill: 25 Years of the Beastie Boys’ Ill Communication, The Birth of Biggie: 25 Years of Ready to Die and Departure, a detailed look at Sharon van Etten’s final days of living in New York City before her move to LA.
The full mini-documentary and live EP will become available this Thursday, February 20th.
