Chris Lane Reacts to ‘New Male Vocalist of the Year’ Nomination for the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards

Marking another high point in his breathtaking climb to stardom, breakout artist Chris Lane is humbled and elated to earn his first-ever Academy of Country Music Awards nomination for the 52nd ACM Awards.

Earlier today (2/16), Lane was recognized in the New Male Vocalist of the Year category, capping a year that found him scoring a #1 debut with the addictive pulse of GOLD-certified “Fix,” racking up rave reviews on major tours and making high-profile national TV appearances.

“I’m super excited and in shock over my first ACM nomination,” exclaims Lane. “It is such an honor to be nominated by my peers and I can’t wait to celebrate with everyone in Vegas!”

Lane’s current single “For Her” continues to rise at Country radio, also rocketing to #1 on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart following a special appearance on ABC’s reality romance series The Bachelor. The devoted, hearts-on-fire confession of love is the second release from Lane’s debut album, GIRL PROBLEMS.

Currently opening sold-out shows on Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR, Lane will also join select dates of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s hotly anticipated SOUL2SOUL TOUR.
