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.

"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: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
