Kane Brown is inarguably one of the biggest stars in country music right now, but could a recent switch up be the thing that finally gets him the role of a lifetime?

It was a chaotic day for country music fans and country stars alike. Early on the morning of April 11th, news broke that Kelsea Ballerini, one of the hosts for the 2022 CMT Awards, tested positive for COVID-19.

She was able to do some of her hosting duties from home, and even performed her newest song 'HEARTFIRST' in her own backyard.

Ballerini was supposed to be sharing co-hosting duties with Marvel actor Anthony Mackie. He played the superhero known as the Falcoln in many of the Captain America and Avengers films.

Ballerini dropped out of her in-person hosting duties and another country superstar was able to step up to the plate. Officials announced that Kane Brown would fill in for Kelsea at the last minute.

Surprisingly, Kane Brown and Anthony Mackie actually killed it!

They're the duo that we didn't know we absolutely NEEDED.

They had incredible chemistry and played off of each other SO well!

Seeing Brown sharing screen time with the actor, had me thinking about the possibility of these two teaming up for a future Marvel project. Could this last minute switch up be the first step in Kane Brown joining the Avengers?

I didn't just pluck this idea out of thin air by the way! Kane Brown shared with me in an exclusive interview at Country Thunder Iowa that he is interested in giving acting a try.

He specifically shared that he would be excited at the idea of being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Brown jokingly said he'd want to play a new character in the 'Black Panther' world.

Could we be getting a Kane Brown and Falcoln spinoff series?

Who knows? Maybe at the after party Anthony Mackie was slipping Kane Brown the phone number of the Marvel casting agency.
