Chris Wallace had a heckuva year. Wallace went from being the frontman of one of the hottest pop-rock bands (The White Tie Affair, squeal!) to being a successful solo artist. His debut album is currently #28 (and climbing) on the Top 40 charts, ans was named “Best Breakthrough Pop Album of 2012” by iTunes. The pop star is also getting dreamy gigs, touring with artists like Flo Rida, The Wanted, Phillip Phillips, Andy Grammer, Rita Ora and others.
His dance pop single, “Push Rewind,” is doing better than anyone could have imagined, currently being played in excess on Fuse and VH1. You can’t even turn on MTV without seeing at least part of the video in their “Rising Stars” playlist.
As a fan of Wallace, I’m super proud of his journey, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for 2013.
