Lane gets help with his "Take Back Home Girl"
Wednesday, October 11, 2017
– Chris Lane is out with a new single and a little bit of vocal help from Tori Kelly.
"Take Back Home Girl," merging R&B and country, is slated to appear on Lane's second CD.
"I've been a big fan of Tori's for quite some time, and I had this song that I was looking for a duet with," Lane said to ET. "They asked me, 'Who's your dream collaboration partner?' and she was the first person I said."
The song was written by Hillary Lindsey, Josh Miller and David Garcia. Kelly has enjoyed hits on the pop/dance side with "Nobody Love" and "Should've Been Us."
Lane has enjoyed hits with "Fix," and "For Her." He opened on Florida Georgia Line's The Smooth tour 2017. His Take Back Home Tour kicks off on Oct. 25 in Baltimore on his first ever headlining run. He'll be joined by up-and-comers Bailey Bryan, Dylan Schneider, and Morgan Wallen on select dates.
