Kane Brown's "Blessed & Free" tour came to Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Thursday night, and the country music star paid homage to the Indiana Pacers with his attire.

Brown, who topped the Billboard 200 with his 2018 album "Experiment" and has had three No. 1 singles on the Billboard US Country chart, sported a customized navy Pacers No. 3 jersey featuring his first name on the back. (We'll assume Pacers rookie guard Chris Duarte was alright with Brown borrowing his jersey number for the night.)

Brown, a big basketball fan who played in the 2020 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, has a tradition of wearing the home team's jersey whenever he has a concert in an NBA arena. This isn't the first time the Pacers have gifted him a customized jersey — he wore their red and gold "Hickory" jersey with No. 13 on the back when he played at the Fieldhouse in 2016.
