Big Loud Records chart topper CHRIS LANE shares another side with the earnest new ballad “Hero” – a warmhearted Country anthem released today (7/6) as anticipation builds toward his second album, LAPS AROUND THE SUN.
Filled with grace and personal conviction, the song’s quiet power foreshadows an exciting new chapter of deeper meanings for the rising star – whose GOLD-certified hits already include the hot-blooded #1 “Fix” and its Top 10 follow up “For Her.” “Hero” is available now as an instant grat track when fans pre-order LAPS AROUND THE SUN, out everywhere next Friday (7/13).
“‘Hero’ is a very special song to me. I’ve never had a song quite like this one,” said Lane. “It’s one of those story songs you always look for, and the third verse really hits home for me. It’s who I am, it’s how I grew up.”
Penned by Josh Miller, the new track joins three previously released instant grat offerings from LAPS AROUND THE SUN – including the hard crushing “I Don’t Know About You” (which landed inside the Top 10 on the iTunes Country Songs chart), the hook-laden summer jam “Fishin’” and the refreshing sing along fun of “Drunk People.”
Meanwhile, Lane’s grooving current single and third GOLD-plated smash “Take Back Home Girl” (featuring GRAMMY nominee Tori Kelly) is now inside the Top 10 at Country radio and still climbing, and the pair are set to perform it on NBC’s TODAY Tuesday, July 17 during the 8:00 a.m. hour.
That national TV appearance arrives after a run of high profile concerts this week – including headlining shows in Huntington, West Virginia, and La Crosse, Wisconsin, plus a Fourth of July slot on Milwaukee’s gigantic Summerfest lineup – and Lane will continue touring all summer with more fair, festival and headline dates once his buzzed-about LAPS AROUND THE SUN album arrives.
