Brown was raised by a single mother, and moved around when he was younger, from Rossville to Fort Oglethorpe and LaFayette in Georgia, finally settling in Red Bank, Tennessee. He attended Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia where he sang in the choir with Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on season 10 of American Idol.

However, after winning a school talent show in 11th grade where he sang Chris Young's "Gettin' You Home", he began to perform country music. 

Brown had tried out on X-Factor in 2013 and was chosen, but quit the show when the show wanted to put him in a boy band.
