Country’s fast-rising star Chris Lane continues to reach new heights during a standout summer, with his current single “For Her” officially certified GOLD by the RIAA. The tender tune is on the verge of Country radio’s Top 10, as Lane crisscrosses the country on Florida Georgia Line’s THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, bringing his heart-melting falsetto and R&B-infused jams to thousands of adoring fans night after night.
Lane was surprised with shiny new hardware recognizing the track’s 500,000 sales and streams by CMT Hot 20 Countdown hosts Katie Cook and Cody Alan just minutes before he hyped up the sold-out crowd at the Wrigley Field stop on FGL’s THE SMOOTH STADIUM TOUR 2017 last Saturday (8/12). Tune in to this weekend’s episode of CMT Hot 20 Countdown (airing August 19 and 20 at 9 a.m. ET) to see the milestone moment.
“It was a dream come true to play Wrigley Field, and for Cody and Katie to surprise me with the GOLD plaque honoring ‘For Her’ was more than I could have ever imagined,” said Lane. “I’m so thankful that this song impacted fans as much as it did me the first time I heard it.”
“For Her” joins Lane’s GOLD-certified debut, “Fix,” which shot to #1 on the Country charts and scored nominations for New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd annual ACM Awards and Best New Country Artist at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Propelling into the national spotlight, Lane made his late-night TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers, as well as performing “For Her” on CONAN and ABC’s reality romance series The Bachelor earlier this year.
Written by Kelly Archer, Sarah Buxton and Matt Dragstrem, “For Her” is a devoted, hearts-on-fire confession of love and the second release from Lane’s Big Loud Records debut album, GIRL PROBLEMS. To date, “For Her” has amassed 31 million streams on Spotify, with the heartfelt music video — complete with a real-life proposal — racking up 7.7 million Vevo views.
