Chris Lane & Scotty McCreery Collaborate on New HIXTAPE Song

Chris Lane & Scotty McCreery collaborate on new HIXTAPE song “Small Town On It,” out today, October 8th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.

As promised, the mastermind behind ‘HIXTAPE,’ HARDY, and his incredible team of musicians are pumping out release after release. Today’s star-studded collaboration combined the likes of Chris Lane and Scotty McCreery. The twosome released the next single off of the upcoming record, a song titled “Small Town On It.”

The brand new track is as country as country gets. Lane brings some edge to the track, while McCreery keeps the song grounded in country roots. The unexpected pairing works perfectly. Each singer takes a turn singing a verse, while the two collab on the the jam-worthy chorus.

“A little rust on the fender // A little dirt on them boots //A little moon on the river // A little rain on the roof // My Friday nights, my nowhere drives // My rowdy side, just got one life // Hey ask me how I want it // And I’ll say I’ll take a little small town on it”

While volume one of HIXTAPE featured HARDY collaborating with guest artists on each and every song, the new installment of the project showcases the singer-songwriter sharing the spotlight with dozens of other artists teaming up on each individual track. “Small Town On It” is a song that was definitely made for this project, and it might be our favorite so far!

Chris Lane Releases Song for His Newborn Son, “Ain’t Even Met You Yet”

Chris Lane celebrates the birth of his son, Dutton, with new song, “Ain’t Even Met You Yet”, available now, June 25th on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new track.

Life has been pretty amazing for Chris Lane lately. Newly married to his wife, Lauren Bushnell, the two love birds have had a pretty spectacular love story. Lane proposed to his now-wife with a previously unreleased song that has now become a hit, “Big, Big Plans.” Now, he’s letting fans into his private life once again. The singer shared a brand new song celebrating fatherhood called “Ain’t Even Met You Yet.”

Lane first previewed the song upon the birth of his son, Dutton Walker Lane. Accompanied by a personal and touching video documenting The Lanes as they prepared for their lives to change forever with the arrival of their firstborn. The beautiful track quickly resonated with fans prompting Lane to officially release it across all platforms.

As a new father, Lane expresses feelings that only a parent can understand. He shares feelings of joy, fear, and unprecedented love. Written just prior to his birth, it is clear that the singer was reflecting a lot on becoming a dad. Lane seems to have a knack for writing music that mirror his life.

“In a couple of months // I’m gonna get to hold your hand // You’re going to make this ole boy, your old man // I feel ready, but I feel scared to death // All I know is I love you // and I ain’t even met you yet”

In addition to the new music, Lane also announced plans for a tour kicking off this Fall. Get all the dates and details here.

Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane Team Up for Summer Jam “Tequila On A Boat”

Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane joined forces on a new summer anthem, “Tequila On A Boat”. Available now, May 14th, on all streaming platforms, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

“Tequila On A boat” perfectly captures everything you want from a summer’s day. From the sun and blue skies to the company you’re with and the drinks flowing. We can’t help but picture ourselves on the water and count down the days until summer after listening to this one.

“Tequila on a boat // a boat on a lake // a lake on fire and the tans ain’t fake // a girl with a smile // smiling at me // me with my eyes on her in the heat”

Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane come together on the track just in time for summer. The collaboration arrives just as the two are coming off largely successful years and both with multiple singles currently on the charts. 

Lynch’s latest project, Tullahoma (2020) included hits songs “Riding Roads”, “Thinkin ‘Bout You”(originally recorded with Lauren Alaina on the album, but recently reimagined with MacKenzie Porter and a current single climbing the charts), and “Momma’s House”, also climbing the charts.

“Tequila On A Boat” marks Lane’s fourth song release in just four weeks! Most recently and just in time for Mother’s Day was “That’s What Mama’s Are For”, preceded by “Summer Job Money” and “Fill Them Boots”. At the end of last year, Lane received his third #1 with “Big Big Plans”, following “Fix” and “I Don’t Know About You”.

Nearly halfway through 2021, the year is shaping up to be a good one for Lynch and Lane and we can only hope to see more new music from the two stars.

Chris Lane Sends Thanks to His Mom with “That’s What Mamas Are For”

Chris Lane released a brand new heartfelt song, serving up as a tribute to his mom with “That’s What Mamas Are For”. Available now, May 7th, on all streaming platforms, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

Chris Lane just released his third song in three weeks. Just in time for Mother’s Day Weekend, following “Summer Job Money” and “Fill Them Boots”, Lane released his latest single, “That’s What Mama’s are For”.

A soon-to-be dad himself, expecting a baby boy with his wife Lauren this any day now, Lane pays tribute to a mother’s calling in his new song. It was inspired by a conversation with his own mom and is a thank you to moms everywhere. “That’s What Mama’s are For” was written by Lane with Will Bundy, Rodney Clawson, and Ernest Keith Smith. 

In a recent press release, Lane shares, “As a soon-to-be dad, this Mother’s Day more than ever, I’m just so grateful for my mom and the amazing momma my wife Lauren already is to our baby boy. This song is to celebrate all the mommas out there. We wouldn’t be who we are today without you.”

“That’s What Mama’s are For” is a thank you to moms for all the behind-the-scenes work they do, all the little things, and how they do it all without complaining and with nothing but unconditional love. 

“She’s got a marked-up King James heart of gold // Got too much on her plate, but never lets it show // And she put her blood, sweat, and tears into raisin’ me // and maybe a little more // Thank the Lord, that’s what mamas are for”

Chris Lane Drops Another New Song, “Summer Job Money”

After releasing new music just last week, Chris Lane is back with another new track, “Summer Job Money”, available now, April 30th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

Last week, country singer, Chris Lane released his first new song in almost two years, “Fill Them Boots’. Now, he’s wasting no time, dropping another new track today, April 30th, titled “Summer Job Money.”

Lane shows his swagger and flirtatious side on this track, as the boy in the song ignores his father’s advice about saving money for college and instead spends it on all his new love interest. With steel guitar prevalent all over this track, “Summer Job Money,” perfectly captures the feelings of two young lovers, and how they dismiss all logic and common sense to solely focus on time well-spent with one another. This tune was penned by John Byron and Blake Pendergrass and produced by Joey Moi.

“Yeah, it’s a real good thing, I didn’t know you back then // ’cause baby, I bet that // Seventeen-me would probably blow all of this summer job money on you”

It’s a good time to be a Chris Lane fan. With live shows back in sight, we can hope Lane was saving these songs for new material to go on tour with.

Chris Lane Returns with Brand New Music, “Fill Them Boots”

Chris Lane’s highly anticipated brand new song, “Fill Them Boots” is available now, April 23rd, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

It has been quite a while since Chris Lane has put new music out — twenty-two months to be exact. He has been riding the slow and steady climb of his latest single “Big, Big Plans,” which hit number one in December, making it the singer’s third chart-topping hit. Today, April 23rd, Lane blessed us with a brand new song titled “Fill Them Boots”.

Lane made his fans wait almost a year for this song, as he teased a demo of it last May on Instagram. Produced by Joey Moi and penned by himself with Josh Miller, Mark Trussell, and Ernest, Lane tells a story of a girl on the rebound. The man sees her holding back tears at the bar, which causes him to swoop in with hopes of boosting her spirits and potentially becoming her new boyfriend. Lane’s twang mixed with a simple string/percussion melody makes this a fun, ‘nice-guys-finish-first’ anthem.

“Girl, it’s time to move on, scoot on over // You’re looking like you can use a brand new shoulder // Let your heart break, take a holiday // for a song or a drink or two any ways // I don’t him from Adam but I’m kind of mad at him, for the way he did you // Yeah, I can fill them boots”

Lane has teased some demos of other songs on social media over the past year as well, so be on the lookout for a future EP or perhaps even a full-length album. His last record, Laps Around the Sun, was released in July of 2018 and featured 2x platinum, number-one hit “I Don’t Know About You” and 2x platinum top ten track, “Take Back Home Girl” with Tori Kelly.

Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans” Earns Him His Third Career #1 Song

Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans” has hit the top spot on the charts this week, earning him his third number-one song following “Fix” and “I Don’t Know About You”.

Just a few days after platinum-selling recording artist, Chris Lane announced the incredible news that his wife, Lauren Bushnell Lane is pregnant with their first child, Lane’s current radio single, “Big, Big Plans” went number one.

Marking his third number one song as an artist, including “Fix” and “I Don’t Know About You,” “Big, Big Plans” is the song that personifies the singer’s relationship with Bushnell. He wrote the song as a surprise to his then-girlfriend to act as the backdrop for their exciting proposal. With such a high demand for the tune, it is clear that fans were sure to make this song hit the top spot!

“She don’t know I got some big, big plans / Build a little house out on some hand-me-down land / Find a little island where we go to get a tan / I bet we take our kids down there one day”

Ironically, the song foreshadows the couple’s future, including having kids, which is now their soon-to-be reality. In regards to new music, Lane promises fans that he is currently working on his next studio album. It is unclear if “Big, Big Plans” will make it on to the new record, but if we had to guess, we’d say it deserves a spot!

Congrats to Lane and his team at Big Loud Records for landing another hit song!
