 Emerging Artist

We might just have a fresh Country music star forming as Kernersville, NC native Chris Lane is a Big Mover up 24 spots to #15 on this week’s Emerging Artist chart. This is one week after he debuted at #39 after popping up on our early warning radar not long before that…talk about trending! He just released the Fix EP on Big Loud Records, the recently formed label from the established management/publishing company Big Loud Mountain, best known for developing Florida Georgia Line. Chris is currently supporting Dustin Lynch’s “Hell of a Night” tour along with Tyler Rich all the way into February. His 2014 single Broken Windshield View was a solid release; now let’s see if Fix can top it. If Country radio gives it a shot and his team can drive some traffic to YouTube the sky’s the limit.
