Chris Lane, out of North Carolina, polished off the night with his Pop/Country sounds. His best song was his first song, Fix. Lane auditioned for the seventh season of American Idol, but did not make it to Hollywood. Lane continues his musical journey, has multiple CD releases and was nominated for New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2017 ACM Awards and Best New Country Artist for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
