After a year hiatus, March Madness returns later this week, and Chris Young and Kane Brown are super-excited.

"I’m pumped that March Madness is happening this year," says Chris in a statement from their label. "I mean, I know you’re a huge basketball fan," he continues to Kane. "It was kind of one of the last sports that I really got into and became a fan of and it was actually college basketball first because of just what the tournament is and how cool it is and all the teams playing each other."

"Yeah, I feel like college they try a lot harder because they’re trying to get to that next step of the NBA, so I’m really just excited to see the new players that’s gonna make that jump and see who wants it more," adds Kane.

"I just love the competitiveness," Kane continues. "I’m a huge basketball fan. I also love betting and I always think that my bracket is going to be 100% and I fail every time but I always – you know that’s my favorite thing about it.

"Mine is making a bracket," says Chris. "And I missed it so much last year. Obviously, there was a lot of circumstances that made it impossible but looks like it’s gonna happen this year. We gotta get like a bracket challenge or something

"Mine’s going to be 100% until it’s not," predicts Kane.

The "Famous Friends" duet is currently climbing the charts.
