Early life and career beginnings

Lane grew up in Kernersville, North Carolina and has a twin brother named Cory.[1] While attending Glenn High School he and his brother played football and baseball, and both went on to play baseball in college at UNC Charlotte. Due to Lane having a lot of surgeries it hurt his chances of playing ball so he learned how to play the guitar. In his hometown he worked for his father's landscaping business and started a cover band that played in High Point University cafeteria. In 2007, Lane and his brother auditioned for the seventh season of American Idol but did not make it to Hollywood.[2] It wasn't until 2008 when Chris met Seth England of Big Loud Mountain management which launched Chris's career as an up-and-coming country music artist.[1][3][4]

Lane's debut single, "Broken Windshield View", was released to country radio on June 10, 2014 by Big Loud Mountain.[7] The song was written by Rodney Clawson, Shane Minor, and David Lee Murphy and produced by Joey Moi.[1][10] It was featured on Sirius XM's The Highway and iTunes' New and Noteworthy.[7] It sold 11,000 downloads in its first week of release[11] and reached number 45 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[12] As of August 2014, it has sold 43,000 downloads.[13][14] It was also included on an extended play.[1][10]
