Chris Young Performs, "Drowning" In Honor Of Kane Brown's Drummer

Chris Young used his time onstage at Wednesday night's (Oct. 16) CMT Artists of the Year ceremony to perform a heart-wrenching in memoriam for Kane Brown's late drummer, Kenny Dixon, who died in a car accident earlier this week.

"I wrote this song about a friend of mine that passed away too soon in a car accident," Young explained as he introduced his song "Drowning." "I kind of empathize with Kane and what he's going through and I really appreciate him allowing me to stand up here tonight and sing this in honor of his friend, Kenny."
