Pop newcomer LIL' CHRIS wants to launch his acting career, just months after signing his first record deal.
The 16-year-old rocker - real name CHRIS HARDMAN - got his big break on British reality TV show Rock School, which was fronted by Kiss legend Gene Simmons.
But he insists acting, not music, was always his main passion.
He says, "I would still like to act because that's my first love. I'd love to be on Broadway or in a movie. I think I could do it."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
