The country superstar’s performance took place at Nashville’s Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and marked the live debut of the song.
“The song i’m performing is a song called ‘Worship You,’ it’s my next single out to Country Radio,” Brown said ahead of the performance. “When I wrote this song, it was about my wife and then our beautiful baby came into our picture and now it’s kind of around both of them, I worship them, they’re my family and I love them to death.”
“Worship You” appears on his latest EP, Mixtape Vol. 1, and was co-written by Brown alongside Alexander Izquierdo, Ryan Vojtesak and Matt McGinn, Produced by Dann Huff.
