Earlier last week, Chris Lane had some “Big Big Plans” as he proposed to his then girlfriend, Lauren Bushnell. The two have been dating publicly for 8 months, since the BMI Country Awards in November, and fans have fallen in love with the couple as the world watched their relationship grow. Some may remember Bushnell’s star role in Lane’s vertical music video for “Take Back Home Girl” on Spotify before the two reconnected months later!
While at Bushnell’s home in Oregon, celebrating Father’s Day, Lane expressed to Bushnell that he wanted to capture the moment of him sharing the new song he wrote for her for the first time. Little did she know, by the end of the song she would be engaged.
The song starts out with a simple acoustic guitar pick and turns into a catchy hook by the time the chorus comes around. “Big Big Plans” describes their relationship to a T as Lane sings, “And I know she wouldn’t mind if I // Did a little something like find a flight // Overnight to paradise and leave tonight.” By following Lane on Instagram, we know that whenever he has a break from touring, he and Bushnell love to get away for a while.
The second chorus sets in and describes him hiding the ring under the bathroom sink, asking her parents for her hand in marriage, and his thoughts about the future. “But I don’t think she can understand // Just how far I’ve been letting my heart fall // Or what’s in my head // She don’t know I got some big, big plans.” While the song is short and simple, it is beautifully written for one special person.
Once the song was posted with their announcement, fans eagerly began asking when the track was going to be released. With such a high demand for the tune, Lane is making it available for fans to listen to on repeat everywhere. On top of getting engaged, the singer is out on the road this summer with Brad Paisley and Riley Green on the 2019 World Tour.
