<p id=”par-3_67″>“Used to Love You Sober” isn’t Brown’s best song. However, it paved the way for a lot of <a href=”https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/kane-browns-biggest-song-duet-wife-doesnt-want-artist.html/”>the “Thank God” singer</a>‘s later music.

There, “Used to Love You Sober” reached No. 15 and stayed on the chart for 24 weeks. The tune appeared on the EP <em>Chapter 1</em>. That EP reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums.</p>
