Poised and prepared for a massive summer of success, breakout talent Chris Lane’s star continues to rise as his latest single, “For Her,” has now cracked the Top 25 on the Billboard and Country Aircheck airplay charts, his second trip into the upper echelons of Country radio.
Foreshadowing a year sure to be filled with career milestones, the R&B-infused hit has also made a huge impact on digital platforms, gathering over 20 MILLION Spotify streams and rocketing to #1 on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart in January following Lane’s special appearance on ABC’s reality romance series The Bachelor.
Written by Kelly Archer, Sarah Buxton and Matt Dragstem, “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, which arrived in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart upon its release in August 2016.
It’s the follow-up to his GOLD-certified #1 debut, “Fix,” which first introduced the North Carolina native as a genre-defying crooner with sky-high vocals and swagger to spare, leading to nominations for New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd ACM Awards and Best New Country Artist at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Lane recently took “For Her” to late-night TV, delivering an energetic performance of the track on CONAN, and thrilled Canadian fans over the weekend as he wrapped up the last few sold-out shows as an opening act on Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR.
This summer, he’ll join select dates of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s long-awaited SOUL2SOUL TOUR reboot, and also serve as the featured supporting artist on FGL’s THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 alongside hip-hop icon Nelly. THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 – which will also feature pop idols Backstreet Boys for three historic stadium concerts – kicks off June 2 in Austin, Texas.
