I really like the idea of “Broken Windshield View” being the song that officially introduces Chris Lane to country music fans and country radio. The reason being is because he sings about how and where he grew up and it’s simply an introduction of the person he is and the artist he is becoming and the road he took to get here. I love how even though I’ve not really spent any time in North Carolina, I can relate to so much of this song. I think a lot of people will certainly be able to, if only in a line. Whether it’s “All the money is the grain in the silo” or “My wheels have rolled all this red dirt” or my personal favorite, “Our Friday nights might get a little black and blue.” Because with most of us while growing up, how true was that? That’s the kind of line that makes you shake your head and think back to a memory you may have not thought about in a long time or even forgotten all together. Were there one word to describe this song, it would be “relatable,” because so much of this song I can identify with and if I can’t, I know people who can. It could’ve been written about the Midwest for sure.
I can’t wait to see what Chris has coming up next! Why go with the title “Broken Windshield View?” I guess you’ll just have to listen to it and see!
