Kane Brown is making his lifelong acting dream come true when he debuts on the CBS series Fire Country on April 7.
“Acting has been a life-long dream of mine, and to make my debut on a hit series like Fire Country is such an honor,” Brown told PEOPLE in a statement ahead of his appearance on the April 7 episode.
Brown is playing the character of Robin, an “enigmatic, modern-day train hopper,” who helps injured train patients at the crash scene. He recently tweeted a few photos for fans to get their first look of him in the show.
Brown shared that “the cast and crew were so welcoming and made me feel like family,” while executive producer and showrunner Tia Napolitano added that the country singer will “light up the Fire Country screen for this episode.”

He Previously Auditioned For A Grease Movie
In 2022, Brown shared his acting aspirations in an interview with Elaina Smith on Nights With Elaina.
“We’ve been trying to get some movies in and see which one relates to me the most,” Brown said.
He told Smith in the interview that he auditioned for a new Grease movie, that has since been cancelled.
“They were surprised with the audition tapes,” he says. “They said that I could actually do it.”
The movies were supposed to be a pre-Danny Zuko storyline. Brown auditioned for a character who went on to pursue a signing career. Despite the movie being cancelled, Brown is still looking to make his big screen debut if someone gives him the opportunity.
He admitted that without any acting class preparation, a horror movie might be a good fit for him.
“Put me in a horror movie,” Brown said. “I would be the guy who is getting hunted. I don’t know if I would want to be the tough dude that was helping everybody or if I want to be the funny guy.”
Brown might not be in theaters any time soon but he will be on smaller ones when his episode airs and is available for streaming.
