From Fort McMurray, Alberta.
He graduated early from high school so he could solely focus on music.
Lines’s self-penned first single, “I Know I Shouldn’t,” was a mild hit on his hometown station KYX-98 and by the end of the summer, his popularity was growing.
At age 20, Lines’s dreams appeared to be coming true and jaunts between Los Angeles, Nashville, and his native Canada consumed him for the next two years. A record deal with RCA followed in spring 2001. Lines’s full-length debut, the charming, mature Living Out Loud arrived two years later. Living Out Loud also earned six Canadian Country Music Award nominations in 2003, including wins for the Rising Star Award and Male Artist of the Year.
Lines issued his sophomore album, Waitin’ On The Wonderful, in 2005, while Moments That Matter came two years later.
Now, he’s been making country music for more than a decade. He has 5 albums under his belt, 2 CCMA’s, plenty of nominations, graced the BVJ stage and still continues to make music.
