Kane Brown Talks Bullying & Being Raised by Women on Set of New Music Video With 'This Is Us' Star (Exclusive)

Boys are never too young or old to bond over trucks!

ET went behind the scenes of country crooner Kane Brown’s sweet new music video for "Good as You,"  where he opened up about being raised by three women while lacking money and being bullied, and introduced his “mini-me” -- This Is Us star Lonnie Chavis, who plays him in the video.

Clearly a fan of 25-year-old Brown, Chavis had an even greater time on set after getting to take a spin in Brown’s wheels.

“The most funnest thing here was meeting [him] because he’s such a great person and he has such an awesome truck,” Chavis, 11, gushed, while ecstatically climbing up into the front seat of the vehicle. “That is the biggest truck I’ve ever seen.”

“That’s my dream truck,” noted Brown, who wed Katelyn Jae in October, sharing footage from the special day in an alternate video for "Good as You."

“It looks like my dream truck now!” replied Chavis, before Brown assured him that he’ll “get it one day.”

Dream cars aside, Brown spoke about his childhood, explaining how being raised by women inspired the song and video, which was directed by Reid Long. 

“My mom, my nana, my aunt raised me, so I was raised by all women, listening to Shania Twain, Sugarland -- all female artists,” Brown said. “They just did this good job. My mom was basically my dad, my nana was my mom.”

“And, it’s just awesome being raised by women because I can relate to them so much,” the singer continued. “It kinda helped me in the real world, so this is just an awesome video basically paying tribute to my nana and my mom and how they raised me. I love them very much.”

Brown, who is up for Single of the Year for “Heaven” at this Sunday's 2019 ACM Awards, went on to share how some deeply personal aspects of his upbringing are reflected in the video.

“I grew up a little different,” he said. “I was bullied at school, so that was hard and I grew up with hardly any money and I feel like there’s a lot of scenes in here where you can actually really see how I was raised, so I can’t wait to see the finished product of this music video.”
