Kane Brown is about to make history at the MTV VMAs.

The chart-topping country singer is the latest artist to be confirmed to perform at the 2022 MTV VMAs this year, making the television debut of his new song “Grand.” He’s also the first-ever male country artist to perform on the iconic show.

According to MTV, the 28-year-old will perform on the Toyota Stage, and fans will be treated on a musical journey from NYC to New Jersey in the stylish and versatile Toyota Corolla Cross with Kane Brown’s hit “Be Like That” serving as the soundtrack for the trip, leading into his performance on the Toyota Stage.

Brown joins an already star-studded list of performers at the VMAs this year, as Anitta, J Balvin, Marshmello x Khalid and Panic! At The Disco will also be making their way to the VMAs stage for unforgettable performances. Additionally, global superstar Nicki Minaj will perform live for the first time since 2018 and receive the prestigious Video Vanguard Award.
