Biography

Galloping down the old town road paved by Lil Nas X, Blanco Brown spliced country twang, hip-hop bounce, and trap on "The Git Up," the summer 2019 single that gave him his first hit. Where Lil Nas X was as inspired by video games as country music, Brown displayed deeper, stronger country roots -- not to mention a sense of humor that led him to dub his fusion "TrailerTrap" -- on both the infectious "The Git Up" and his eponymous debut EP, also released in 2019. A native of Georgia, Blanco Brown grew up dividing his time between the small town of Butler and the metropolis of Atlanta. He'd spend the school year in Butler, then head to the big city in the summer. This cross-pollination bore musical fruit many years later. Prior to becoming a recording artist, Brown worked behind the scenes as a producer and songwriter. He collaborated with Pitbull and Fergie, and produced the 2018 World Cup anthem "Goalie Goalie" all before Broken Bow Records signed him to a recording deal in 2018. Released on in the first half of 2019, the Blanco Brown EP was quickly overshadowed by the single "The Git Up." Appearing while Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" consumed America's consciousness, "The Git Up" capitalized on the country-rap craze. It also helped that Brown had a clever internet component via a dance challenge posted on YouTube and TikTok. The viral attention helped him debut at 66 on Billboard's Hot 100 in June 2019. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
