Can you imagine having to phone the police because you and your friends got lost … and in your own backyard! That’s what happened to Kane Brown and a few of his friends.



In a lengthy Facebook post, Kane shares what went down the day he got lost in his backyard, “The real story is I moved into a new house. I own 30 acres of 3000 around me.  I told my wife I wanted to go check out the property I’ll be 30 minutes.  I went with my friend and his girl.  I was in shorts and a t-shirt.  Thirty minutes turned into three hours it started raining turned dark and dropped to 40 degrees.  We used GPS to try and get back but it kept taking us to all these cliffs that u can’t drive a 4 wheeler down and I wasn’t about to leave them.  So I called my last resort – Ryan Upchurch (friend and songwriter), who lives in the area.  He has four other friends riding around in a canam and they start getting shot at.  My buddy’s girl who has asthma started then freaking out. We HAD to get her out. So we call the cops. The cops arrive and hear the gun shots and think we are shooting at them. We yell at them and tell them we are not armed and made it out.”




Following the incident, Ryan Upchurch uploaded a video on Instagram, “But here’s the fact of the matter, man. You weren’t there. I was there.  Kane got lost in the woods, on property that he freshly just got to, doesn’t really know that well. He goes out riding, gets lost, it gets dark, he can’t find his way out,” Upchurch explained.  Me and my brother and a couple of my friends went there into the woods we’ve never even been in our life, I had to get GPS even to go to his house. We ended up finding him in the woods, because me and my brother, you know, we know how like look for trails recently ridden on and s— like that. So we found him. But we run out of gas. We ran out of cell phone service, too. We got lost in the woods with him.  When you’re in pitch black and your eyeballs are open and you can’t even see your hand in front of your face, and you’re on thousands of acres that you’ve never even been on before, it’s kinda hard to find your way out.  Just sayin’. It’s obvious some of y’all never been lost in the woods before, but if you get dropped in thousands of acres blind as f— in a place you ain’t never been in before, probably gonna get lost.”
