Chris Lane celebrated his first No. 1 single, “Fix,” with a party on Monday night (Oct. 10) at Nashville’s BMI on Music Row.
While family and friends noshed on wraps, chips and salsa and cheese platters, Chris and the song’s co-writers, Sarah Buxton, Jesse Frasure and Abe Stoklasa, gathered onstage to thank family and friends for all their support.
“I was mowing lawns everyday of my life. It’s kind of hard to believe—I’m riding around on the mower, playing music at night and I guess in those moments I never thought ‘Wow, I’m gonna have a number one, one day,’” Chris said from the stage. “I’m grateful for each and everyone of you in this room. Thank you for all your love and support on everything.”
“Fix” hit the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart in August 2016, giving Chris and Abe their first No. 1 hit. For songwriter Jesse Frasure—writer of hits like Rascal Fatts’ “I Like The Sound of That” and Florida Georgia Line’s “Sun Daze”—”Fix” was his fourth No. 1, and it was Sara’s second.
Watch as Chris takes the stage to express his thanks.
