The name of the tour is derived from his song "Big, Big Plans," penned for his now-fiancée, Lauren Bushnell. Written by Lane with Jacob Durrett and Ernest K. Smith, the song was first heard during Lane's proposal video.

Last weekend, Lane wrapped the U.S. dates of his run as opener on Brad Paisley's World Tour. Lane has headline shows this month before rejoining Paisley for the European portion of his tour in October.

Barrett, now signed to Warner, came into national prominence as a finalist on ABC's American Idol in 2018, and has released her debut single, "I Hope."

Blurring the lines between country and hip-hop music, Brown makes a southern sound that he proudly calls "Trailer Trap." He had a huge viral hit this summer with "The Git Up."

Ernest mixes hip hop and country. He has penned songs for Florida Georgia Line ("Dig Your Roots"), Chris Lane ("Big, Big Plans"), LOCASH, Jake Owen, Mason Ramsey and Morgan Wallen.

Girl Problems CD review - Girl Problems
Chris Lane sounds like he's been addicted to The Voice or at least Adam Levine because his vocals and sometimes his sonics bear a resemblance along with Panic! at the Disco's "Brendon Urie. The leadoff song and country hit "Fix" has the focal dynamics often displayed by Levine with a falsetto, something he resorts to often. Lane also milks the chugging big beats with his breathiness. "Let Me Love You," a cover of R&B artist Mario's 2004 hit, is dotted with »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»

Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
