At the age of 3, Blane stood in front of the TV with a blue and green plastic guitar and sang along with Alan Jackson’s “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow.” He dreamed of one day growing up to be a country singer just like Alan Jackson. Over 20 years later, Blane is still chasing that same dream he had as a kid.
Growing up in south Arkansas, Blane was highly influenced by the music that surrounded him – from the country styles of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill and Randy Travis, to the Classic Rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd and AC/DC. Today, he is heavily influenced by the styles of Chris Young, Blake Shelton and David Nail. All of these influences have made an impact on Blane’s unique style of country, mixing the authenticity of the 90′s with the contemporary edge of today.
Blane is the definition of a true southern gentleman; a man raised on strong morals and southern hospitality. His charisma and charm warms the hearts of everyone he meets, and he brings that same warmth and charm to every performance. Blane’s smooth voice and rich, warm tone will captivate an audience and leave them wanting more.
In May of 2010, Blane graduated from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with a degree is Commercial Music: Vocal Performance. While attending Belmont, Blane was selected to perform in the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business’ 2010 Country Showcase which was held in the Curb Event Center on Belmont’s campus. The Curb Event Center was the site of the CMT Music Awards in 2007 and 2008.
Blane has opened for well-known country artists Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, Charlie Daniels, John Michael Montgomery, Josh Thompson and Aaron Tippin. In July of 2011, he opened in front of over 10,000 people for 2011 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year and Co-Star of NBC’s “The Voice,” Blake Shelton
