Chris Lane is heading out on his own Laps Around the Sun Tour. The 33-year-old will kick off his tour on October 12, with Mason Ramsey and American Idol alum Gabby Barrett serving as his opening acts.
"I'm blown away by the response to my new album," shares Lane of Laps Around the Sun. "Performing live and interacting with fans is one of my favorite parts of what I do, and hearing people sing along is such a cool feeling. I can't wait to hit the road and play these songs every night. See y'all this fall!"
Laps Around the Sun, released in July, was Lane's way to embrace the fun feeling of summer all year long.
"My idea was just to capture the summertime feeling, out on the beach, out on the lake, summer cookouts, whatever it is, and just put people in that kind of atmosphere and that mindset," Lane tells PopCulture.com. "For me, the reason that I wanted that is because that's my happy place, and that's where I want to be on any off day that I get. I think a lot of people relate to that, and love that, especially going on vacation and whatnot. I just wanted to create a good summertime record, and that was my ultimate goal in the end."
Lane's current single, "Take Back Home Girl," features pop star Tori Kelly on the track.
"I had the song," Lane recalls. "It wasn't a duet or anything like that, but we decided we wanted to put some female parts on it, and I knew it was going to be a single. My label asked who a dream collaboration would be. I said Tori Kelly, not realizing in that moment that it would end up actually happening. We sent her the song, she loved it, said she'd love to be a part of it, and I'm very thankful for that, very blessed that she jumped on the song, because I feel like it took it to the next level. So far, it's been the biggest song of my career."
