Thank God is from Kane’s third LP, Different Man and was written by Josh Hoge, Jaxson Free, Kyle Fishman, Christian Davis, and Jared Mullins.
“I tried to fight to get into Nashville for the longest. People were just like, Nah nah. And then when it started selling, that’s when people started coming to the door.”
Different Man Track List:
“She doesn’t want to be an artist she just loves singing. She’s always singing around the house, and her voice is beautiful. We’ve been looking for songs and probably went through about five of them before we got this one from one of my writers at Verse 2 and it was supposed to be a solo song. We changed it to a duet, and she fell in love with this song. Personally, I think it is the biggest song off the record.”
“So me and Kate have been trying to release a song for like five years now. And we kept getting songs coming in, we thought that you know, each of them was the song for us but it never felt right. So my buddy Josh, that’s signed to my publishing deal, he sent me a song called Thank God, and I listened to it, and I fell in love with it. And then kept listened to it and kept listening to it. I was like; this could be a duet. So I asked Kate and Kate fell in love with the song, and now it’s one of my favorite songs.”
“I just remember having our first official date, and he was talking. I wasn’t really listening to anything he was saying. In my mind, I was thinking, Holy crap; I’m going to marry him.”
“We met down in Florida at my very first show ever; I believe it was in 2015. The day before that show, I was supposed to be in her music video because she was an artist as well, and it couldn’t happen cause my show was the same day as the music video. So a year goes by and the same guy we were working with brings her to a show, she didn’t want to come and he forced her basically. We met, we didn’t talk at all, I maybe said hey to her but I thought she was adorable and I kept looking at her all night. So I asked her to come to Nashville like the next day, I flew her down and we just hit it off and she never left.”
Kane and Katelyn have two Daughters, Kingsley Rose and Kodi Jane.
“Well, it’s funny because I have people tell me all the time that my music makes their kids stop crying, so when our one-year-old’s crying, we put on Thank God and immediately, she stops. It’s cool just to see them watch me on TV, but now they get to watch me and their mom, so that’s the best part.”
“It’s amazing. My one-year-old has a crazy personality now, smiling all the time, saying, daddy. My three-year-old tells me she loves me if I get her juice. I love you; Dad is like the best feeling in the world, and just playing and running around the house. Her scream is so loud. It hurts your ears, but it’s just fun.”
Alex Alvga directed the video for Thank God. Kane and Katelyn brought the song to life with a romantic video filmed in Hawaii.
