Who is Chris Lane? You may know him his debut solo single “Broken Windshield View” or from our interview last year. But chances are you’ve never heard of the thirty year old from North Carolina. That’s likely to change in the next couple of months.
2014 is in the books and it’s time to start focusing on the artists that we think will be making names for themselves this year. In 2014 it was Chase Rice and Sam Hunt who caused country fans to fall in love with their party friendly jams. As we look forward and try to predict who we think will burst into the spotlight we’ve highlighted five artists to watch in 2015.
Some artists have been working their whole lives to get a record deal and a song on the radio. Others, like Chris Lane, came to music later in their lives. For Chris it didn’t happen until after college, but that can be attributed to the fact that his days at UNC-Charlotte were spent focusing on baseball. Since, graduating Chris has been working hard to get to the point he’s at today. His debut single “Broken Windshield View” sold over ten thousand copies during the first week and was featured as “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes. He toured with Florida Georgia Line and Nelly over the summer and is getting ready to head back out on tour with Jerrod Niemann.
So what can you expect off his debut album, his live shows with Jerrod, and more?
