Watch Up-and-Comer Chris Lane’s Pop Hits Mashup at Stars for Second Harvest 2016
On Tuesday night (June 7), the 12th annual Stars for Second Harvest benefit concert took over the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, with a group of country artists raising money for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Event host Craig Wiseman lined up acts including Blake Shelton and Kane Brown for this year's benefit concert, and one of the evening's highlights came from rising country star Chris Lane.
During Lane's set, the up-and-comer and his band broke into a medley of pop hits that included the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way," "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake, the Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face" and "Want to Want Me" by Jason Derulo. Throughout the five-minute mashup, Lane donned a sparkling fedora (handed to him by Wiseman) and had the audience singing along with the well-known songs. The highlight, though, came at the end, when Lane performed a bit of *NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye" and was joined by Wiseman, who put on a fedora of his own and offered up his best impression of the boy band's famous dance moves. Readers can press play on the video above to see the entire performance.
Lane released his newest single, "Fix," in October of 2015; the song reached the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in late May. Lane's Fix EP was released in November of 2015 via Big Loud Mountain; as frontman of the Chris Lane Band, he released an album, Let's Ride, in 2012.
In the past 11 years, the Stars for Second Harvest event has helped raise nearly $900,000 for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
