Chris Lane took “Fix” to a new level with his Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday night (2/20). The newcomer was welcomed into the famous circle by country music icon Bill Anderson before launching into performing his Top 25-and-climbing single “Fix,” which accumulated the most first week single adds from a debut male artist in Country Aircheck history and has notched 4,652,352 plus streams on Spotify. He closed his set with fan-favorite “For Her” and had the sold out crowd waving their hands in the air.
Lane’s debut also featured Big Loud Shirt hit songwriter Sarah Buxton, who co-wrote “Fix” with Jesse Frasure and Abe Stoklasa, as a special guest on background vocals.
Immediately following the big night, Lane traveled to Minneapolis, MN, for the last stop (2/21) on Dustin Lynch’s heavily pre-sold out HELL OF A NIGHT Tour. Continuing to play shows nationwide this spring, Lane is gearing up for another tour to be announced soon.
Since releasing the buzzy “Fix,” Lane racked up shout-outs from celebrities such as Daughtry, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Lucy Hale, Dustin Lynch, Cole Swindell, and more. He landed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Twitter Real-Time Emerging Artist chart the day of release, making the irresistible song one of the most shared tracks on Twitter in the U.S. from an up-and-coming artist. “Fix” shaped Lane’s sonic direction and is the title track of his newly released EP produced by the award-winning Joey Moi. Media have applauded his bold, fresh sound and standout falsetto; with early raves including ROLLING STONE’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” YOUNG HOLLYWOOD’s “Artist To Watch” list, HELLO! Magazine’s “People You Will Be Talking About” and GLAMOUR’s “Music We Love.” Lane was also chosen for the select CMT 2016 LISTEN UP campaign. The talented newcomer started his career selling out club shows in his hometown of Kernersville, NC, and previously toured with heavy-hitters Florida Georgia Line, Nelly, Jerrod Niemann, Lee Brice and more.
