As his heartwarming second single, “For Her,” climbs into Country radio’s Top 10, Big Loud Records’ breakout star CHRIS LANE is taking his career to the next level with his first ever headlining tour.
Calling his headline debut the TAKE BACK HOME TOUR, Lane is set to put his unique R&B-meets-Country style on blast for 18 dates packed into two whirlwind months, with special guests BAILEY BRYAN, DYLAN SCHNEIDER, and MORGAN WALLEN appearing at select tour stops.
Kicking things off October 25 in Baltimore, MD, Lane will crisscross the country through cities like Uncasville, CT; Baton Rouge, LA; and Columbus, OH; before wrapping up December 15 in Wichita, KS.
Venues for each stop on the TAKE BACK HOME TOUR will be revealed soon. For on-sale details and to purchase tickets, please visit www.iamchrislane.com
“I couldn’t be more excited for my first headlining tour. I’ve learned so much as a performer on the road with Florida Georgia Line this summer, so to be able to showcase that and take more music to the fans is a dream come true,” says Lane. “With Bailey, Dylan and Morgan along for the ride, it’s going to be an incredible couple of months.”
News of Lane’s newfound headliner status follows the star’s unprecedented early success. After breaking out with his addictive first single “Fix” (a GOLD-certified #1 smash), Lane’s stunning debut album, GIRL PROBLEMS, landed in Top 10 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart. With his profile soaring higher than his trademark falsetto vocals, Lane’s next single – the romantically charged “For Her” – has kept the trend going, earning the Kernersville, NC, native another GOLD certification and breaking into Country radio’s Top 10.
An all-acoustic version of Lane’s GIRL PROBLEMS debut is now streaming on digital services worldwide, and his success has also extended to the stage. Opening shows for superstar duo Florida Georgia Line all summer on their genre-busting THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 (alongside Hip-Hop icon Nelly and Pop idols Backstreet Boys for FGL’s first-ever headlining stadium concerts), Lane has also turned heads and pumped up crowds for Garth Brooks, Dustin Lynch, Rascal Flatts, and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their celebrated SOUL2SOUL TOUR.

About Morgan Wallen: Born in Sneedville, Tenn. (also home to bluegrass legend Jimmy Martin), Wallen was a star on the baseball diamond, attended the same high school as country superstar Kenny Chesney, and has deep roots in the church. With a hard-rock loving preacher for a father and a mother who couldn’t get enough country and contemporary Christian music, Wallen began performing for his local congregation at the tender age of 3 and went on to develop a strong love of country, rock and hip-hop. After moving to Music City in 2015, he’s co-written with hit-makers like Craig Wiseman, Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, the Warren Brothers, Tommy Cecil and Matt Dragstrem, and has been honing his studio poise with award-winning producer Joey Moi. Wallen’s five-song EP THE WAY I TALK hit iTunes and Spotify on July 29, 2016, and his Southern-roots anthem “The Way I Talk” was instantly included on Spotify’s popular Wild Country, New Boots and New Music Friday playlists. The song has since gathered over 10 million Spotify streams and risen into the Top 30 on Billboard’s Country Airplay radio chart.
