Kane Brown has shown off his ability to take on other artists' songs admirably (with his most recent being a credible swipe at Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel"). It's hard to top his latest social media share, however, which shows off his very first time on stage...singing a classic from Tim McGraw.

Yep, that's an adorable little Brown in the video, aged 12, making a very serious attempt at "I Like It, I Love It." Brown punctuates the post with a self-deprecating crying-laughing emoji, but it's really not too bad of a performance considering his tender age. And of course, it's too cute for words.

Needless to say, Brown (who's now 25) has come a long way since then. The singer, who's now a bona fide star, is prepping for a busy 2019. He released his sophomore album Experiment in November, which debuted at No. 1, sealing the success he had with his self-titled debut full-length album in 2016. The new album's first single, "Lose It," also reached No. 1.

The singer is kicking off his first-ever headlining arena tour on Jan. 10 in Georgia. The Live Forever Tour features Granger SmithRaeLynnDanielle Bradbery and Jimmie Allen as support acts on select dates.
