SHOW: CMT Hot 20 Countdown
DATE: October 20 and 21
TIME: 9:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. CT
Big Loud Records star CHRIS LANE is bringing his brand new single to life this weekend, with the “I Don’t Know About You” music video premiering on CMT Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday (10/20). The anticipated premiere will extend to multiple platforms over the weekend, including MTV Live, MTVU and CMT.com.
Directed by Justin Clough and filmed outside of Nashville, TN, the clip follows Lane in a smoky small-town bar, attempting to learn the name of a mystery girl he spots once he arrives. The two get to know each other throughout the evening – as depicted in the song’s sing along lyrics – unaware of the surprise twist ending the night holds.
Gearing up for the video’s release, Lane is taking over CMT’s Instagram stories today (10/19). Follow along here.
With its “slick and sultry beats” (Taste of Country), “I Don’t Know About You” follows Lane’s three consecutive GOLD-certified singles and is climbing the charts after hitting Country radio last week. The song’s catchy, wistful lyrics – penned by Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy, Hunter Phelps and Jameson Rodgers – have been shouted word-for-word by fans at Lane’s live shows since the summertime release of his sophomore album LAPS AROUND THE SUN. The album has surpassed 100 million+ streams on Spotify.
Lane’s coinciding LAPS AROUND THE SUN TOUR kicked off last night in Milwaukee, WI, and has the entertainer crisscrossing the country for high-energy performances in major cities through December. Tonight he is set for a SOLD-OUT show at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, IL, with special guests Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett. Lane will wrap the tour’s opening weekend tomorrow night (10/20) in Indianapolis, IN.
