Back in March, we here at CMChat named Chris Lane as a “One to Watch” artist, and today, the hot country newcomer hits country radio and iTunes with his single “Broken Windshield View.” The track pays homage to life in the country, and is the debut release for Lane, who recently signed with Big Loud Mountain.
The catchy, up-tempo track was produced by Joe Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) and written by Nashville hit-makers Rodney Clawson, Shane Minor and David Lee Murphy. The guitar-driven song is perfect for rolling down the windows and taking a drive this summer. “Growing up in the country, I would ride around with my dad in his landscaping truck and it always had a broken windshield. Still does today,” shared Lane. “The minute I heard this song I knew I had to record it … I lived this. The song is fun, fast and rockin’. I can’t wait for country fans to hear it!”
Lane captured the attention of Florida Georgia Line and will be joining them on tour this summer for their THIS IS HOW WE ROLL SUMMER SERIES 2014, also featuring Nelly. Additionally, Lane has played over 500 shows, opening for the likes of The Band Perry, Lee Brice, Chris Young, Brantley Gilbert and the Eli Young Band. His debut EP will be released later this year on Big Loud Mountain and is being produced by Joey Moi.
