The talent of the folks here in the south is just crazy! I mean think of all the great artists that come from around here! Eric Church is from North Carolina, and of course Josh Turner from South Carolina. And that’s not to mention Jason Aldean, Colt Ford, Brantley Gilbert and the other boys from Georgia. But who’s this new guy from Carolina?
His names Chris Lane, born and raised in Kernersville, NC and a University of North Carolina at Charlotte alumni that has found a love in music, and is ready to show the world his talent! Growin up listenin to Keith Urban, Eric Church, and Jason Aldean its easy to see his influences in his music!
This album has been bigger then he thought, with it debuting today nationwide at #6 on iTunes Country charts! It seems like Chris’s dreams are comin true “At the end of the day when this record is put out, I hope people can connect with the songs and feel what we are trying to convey in the messages. We want our fans to love the sound and direction we are heading with the music and hopefully we will pick up more fans a long the way. I’m really happy with the songs that I have written for this album…”
Ya know he may not have a huge record deal out of Nashville, but obviously his fans see something in him that Nashville might not see yet. This guy really has some die hard fans and aren’t afraid to tell ya! Even though he plays bars all over the Carolinas they probably would travel from here to Texas to see him play.
I hope Chris makes it big, after all I think the kid has the talent to go the distance, plus its always cool seeing someone from North Carolina make it big time. Especially when they are as down to earth and genuine as Chris.
Make sure you check out his new album ‘Lets Ride’ here on iTunes!
