Kane Brown Supports Veterans With ‘Homesick’ Remix E! News UK
Kane Brown released a philanthropic version of their song “Homesick,” featuring three of our nation’s veterans.
Titled “Homesick (Veterans Version)”, the remix of Kane’s chart-topping song features the vocals of JW Cortesa Marine Combat veteran turned actor and philanthropist; Sal Gonzalez, who joined the Marine Corps in the aftermath of 9/11; and General Wilsona Navy veteran turned gospel singer.
The new rendition is part of Kane’s partnership with the Crown Royal Purple Bag Project which offers veteran care packages. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the mission of the Purple Bag Project has also been expanded to help frontline workers.
For every ‘Homesick (Veterans Version)’ stream, Crown Royal will donate one bag to Packages from Home which will then be delivered to healthcare workers and the military in line with Crown Royal’s goal of donating 1 million bags by the end of 2020.
Additionally, the Purple Bag Project will donate $1 for each stream of the song, with a cap of $100,000, to Minority Veterans of America.
The original video for “Homesick” also pays tribute to veterans by showing footage of Kane’s performance of the song for members of the California National Guard.
“Homesick” became Kane’s fifth consecutive number one song on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in March.
