Rascal Flatts Surprises Breakout Newcomer With RIAA Plaque Onstage In Indianapolis
Nashville, Tenn. (September 19, 2016) – Big Loud Records breakout star Chris Lane
was surprised with a GOLD record plaque for his #1 single “Fix”
Saturday night (9/17) in Indianapolis, as he celebrated the final night
opening for Rascal Flatts and Kelsea Ballerini on
this summer’s RHYTHM & ROOTS tour. The plaque, commemorating
500,000 sales and streams of Lane’s smash debut hit, was presented by
Rascal Flatts in an onstage ceremony that followed Lane’s set and had
the boisterous crowd roaring with applause.
“I’m excited to reach this milestone,” shared Lane. “I love seeing
people show up and sing along to ‘Fix.’ This means that people are
listening and believing in me, I don’t take that for granted.”
“Fix,” which marked Lane’s first #1 at Country radio, hit #1 on the CMT
Hot 20 Countdown this week, leading into his late-night TV debut
September 28 on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Lane’s debut album Girl Problems – produced by superstar studio ace Joey Moi
(Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) – was released August 5 to media
applause for his bold, fresh sound and standout falsetto. The album
features current single “For Her” as well as “Fix,”
which surpassed an impressive 24 million streams on Spotify and 5.5
million views on Vevo, and gave Big Loud Records its first-ever #1 with
its first single – an unheard-of start for a new label. Lane has won
shout-outs from massive industry names like Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad),
Selena Gomez, Florida Georgia Line, Lucy Hale, Daughtry, and more,
after starting his career selling out club shows in his hometown of
Kernersville, NC, before going on to open for Dustin Lynch’s sold-out
HELL OF A NIGHT Tour and spending his summer on the RHYTHM & ROOTS
Tour. The “For Her” video, featuring a romantic, real-life wedding
proposal, was released September 17 with an exclusive CMT world
