NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Country singer Kane Brown says his new single "Homesick" may have been written about his experience traveling on the road and being away from his loved ones, but military families have connected to the song.

Brown's song is dedicated to military families, and the music video features returning service members surprising their families.

"I feel like the normal person can't relate to the 'Homesick' song because they're gone you know 9 to 5 and they come home," Brown said.

The song from his 2018 album "Experiment" is a pop country acoustic ballad. Brown wrote it about having to leave home every week to play shows around the country, he said.

"I was trying to find somebody else that could relate to just being away from home all the time," Brown said. "We had a bunch of fans send their homecoming videos in and made an awesome music video, very tear-jerker music video."

He said he's currently shooting a second music video for the song that will also focus on the military but be more like a short film.

"I thought there's not many songs going out these days about the military like there used to be," Brown said. "I felt like this would really hit home for them. Just kind of like memories of, you know, anybody dancing in a kitchen, singing favorite songs with each other."

This is the third single from the "Experiment" album, following the No. 1 country airplay hits "Lose It" and "Good As You."

Brown, who started his career on social media posting cover songs online, said that he has seen a lot of positive responses from military families about the song.

"And like when I see somebody that's in the military at all, if they message me on social media, it's something that I always got to reply back," Brown said.
