Nelly & Kane Brown Give Live Debut Of “Grits & Glamour” During ‘CMT Crossroads’

Nelly and Kane Brown gave the live debut of their brand new collaborative single!

The 3x GRAMMY-award winning rapper and country superstar performed their latest collaboration, “Grits & Glamour,” for the first-time ever during CMT Crossroads on Wednesday, September 1.

“Doing this project, I knew I had to have this young brother a part of this project because my goal is to make a statement in the sense of being relative for people such as yourself, for people such as myself, for Blanco’s, for BRELAND’s in a genre of music that can be loved universally,” Nelly said.

“It was a no brainer for me to have you on here,” Nelly told Brown ahead of their performance of “Grits & Glamour” on the iconic CMT series.

Earlier in the show, Brown and Nelly teamed up for a performance of “Cool Again,” a track from Brown’s EP, Mixtape Vol. 1. You can watch the superstar pair’s “Cool Again” performance below.

Throughout the show, the St. Louis-born rapper brought out his longtime friends and collaborators Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown, Blanco Brown and BRELAND, who joined Nelly to perform new songs from his just-released country-influenced EP, Heartland. The project features Nelly’s 2x Platinum hit with Florida Georgia Line, “Lil Bit,” in addition to “Grits & Glamour” with Kane Brown, “High Horse” with Blanco Brown and Breland, and more.

The 60-minute special also featured high-energy, one-of-a-kind performances of Nelly’s biggest hits, including “Hot In Herre,” “Country Grammar (Hot Shit).” CMT also through in a few surprises to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nelly’s diamond-certified album, Country Grammar.
