10. Small Town On It (feat. Chris Lane & Scotty McCreery)
The concept of the “things we don’t have growing up” is nothing new, but it’s still a theme that can be used to significant effect. This track, co-written by Chris Lane, Scotty McCreery, and Frankie Ballard, talks about how he always wanted things like fancy cars and mansions. But despite having never lived in one, Chris knows what it’s like to be “living small town on it.”
Well, it certainly didn’t take long for Chris Lane to become a household name. The track hit number one on the Billboard Country Airplay charts, downloaded over 1 million times, and is certified platinum in that format. It’s also charted at 26 on the all-encompassing “Hot 100”. The song tells the story of a man asking his significant other to be patient with him while he works on himself and all the wrong things in their relationship.
8. For Her
Chris Lane had no problem finding a direction for his first single. The first three tracks on ‘Girl Problems’ share the common theme of wanting or hoping to find someone special. He knows it’s not going to be easy to find the right woman on this track but also realizes that it’s worth fighting for.
7. Tailgate To Heaven (feat. Chris Lane)
This is the third song co-written by Chris Lane to find its way onto this list. Signed to Big Loud Records, he’s worked with some of Nashville’s closest to get his career off the ground. This fun track tells the story of two friends who are always able to just bond over their love for tailgating and having a good time.
6. Fill Them Boots
The first thing that sticks out on ‘Fill Them Boots’ is the song’s title. Chris Lane is an up-and-coming country artist, so the title clarifies that he’s not looking to try and fit in or be something other than what he is. The song talks about how some people have been born into wealth, and then some people come from more modest means. In this song, Chris Lane shows that he is the latter and won’t let anyone stop him from making his dreams come true.
5. Stop Coming Over
Chris Lane takes a break from the traditional country sound for this song and gives us a story that sounds more like something that an alternative country artist would release. The singer talks about how he has to keep his ex-girlfriend away because she’s making his life a lot harder than it needs to be. What makes the story even better is that he doesn’t care anymore and isn’t going to try and stop her, which could be inferred by the title.
4. Hold You Tonight (Gryffin with Chris Lane)
Following the release of ‘Girl Problems,’ Chris Lane released a five-track EP that featured “Hold You Tonight.” The Justin Timberlake-inspired song finds the singer not wanting to let go of someone who has had an indelible impact on him. But even though he wants to be with her, he knows that “time changes everything,” and he must let go of the past.
3. Take Back Home Girl (feat. Tori Kelly)
In this day and age, it’s a lot easier to find couples in show business. It seems like every couple of months, and a new celebrity relationship is making its way around the news and entertainment outlets. The latest and greatest celebrity couple is Tori Kelly and Chris Lane. Their relationship has made headlines and fan-made videos about the two of them, including this one.
2. I Don’t Know About You
One of the first songs that Chris Lane ever released as a solo artist was “I Don’t Know about you.” The song talks about how he’s trying to convince a woman that he can make her happy, but she keeps insisting that she doesn’t know if she believes him. With the help of the song’s production, Chris Lane can show how he can make her feel and why she should give him a chance.
1. Big, Big Plans
It’s clear that Chris Lane knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to make his dreams come true.

This is one of the most inspirational songs you’ll hear in any musical genre, especially country music.
