After touring in the past year with Dustin Lynch, Kelsea Ballerini and
Rascal Flatts, Lane’s been making a name for himself as one of the
genre’s most groundbreaking new stars: his first single, “Fix,” topped
the Country radio charts, has been certified GOLD in both the U.S. and
Canada, and surpassed both 25.8 million streams on Spotify and 6 million
views on Vevo, making waves for how effortlessly it blends progressive
pop and that sultry falsetto with his country roots. It’s a
record-breaker, too: the song has accumulated the most first week single
adds from a debut male artist in Country Aircheck history, all while
drawing praise from the likes of Selena Gomez, Lucy Hale, Daughtry and
more. Now, Lane’s ready to share Girl Problems with the world, the debut
LP produced by Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) and released
August 5th by Big Loud Records.

Originally from North Carolina but now residing in Nashville, Lane once
thought his life was heading in an entirely different direction: an ace
athlete, he played football and baseball until an injury sidelined him
permanently. Looking for an outlet, he turned to the guitar – he’d
always loved music growing up, and listened to everything from Garth
Brooks and Usher to Justin Timberlake – and it quickly turned from a
hobby into a downright passion. He started playing in a cover band and
became a must-see act in town, all while starting to write his own
songs, a talent that came unexpectedly easily.

“Once I got a taste of what it was like to be on stage,” says Lane, “and
more and more people came out to the shows, I thought, ‘well, I should
try and write my own music.’ I sat down and wrote twelve songs. After
that, it instantly felt like music was what I truly was supposed to be
doing. I discovered a passion I never thought I could have.”
Soon, Nashville came calling, and it wasn’t before long that he found
himself working with Moi, who was instantly drawn to his cutting-edge
originality and ability to transcend genres. One day in the studio, Lane
was singing an Usher song to himself while Moi was working behind the
controls – including all of the high, falsetto notes that are impossible
for most to even approach. And, suddenly, a light bulb went off: they
realized they could integrate those vocal abilities into Lane’s music in
way that country had never quite done before. “I’m so glad we discovered
that,” says Lane. “It’s out of the box for country music, and that’s how
I like to be.”

Once Lane felt free to unleash those killer vocals, everything fell into
place: it was the thread that laced together his diverse pop and country
influences, and “Fix,” written by Sarah Buxton, Jesse Frasure and Abe
Stoklasa, was the first piece of that puzzle (and also the title of his
debut EP). Girl Problems – named as an ode not only to the difficulties
of romance but the beauty of learning from missteps and mistakes – takes
the ride one step further, pushing even more boundaries, packing more
surprises and, most of all, always remembering to make people dance or
sing along. From the smooth, R&B vibe of “Who’s It Gonna Be” that
absolutely smashes with its infectious, eighties-pop infused chorus; to
the twang disco of “All The Time”; to the mid-tempo “For Her,” which
Lane describes as his “Backstreet Boy” moment – if the Backstreet Boys
played a little banjo – it’s a contemporary ride from one exciting
corner of the genre to the next, reinventing country with every octave.

“I love what Florida Georgia Line is doing, and what Sam Hunt has done,”
says Lane. “They have created something that was unique to country that
nobody else had tried. That’s how I strive to create music, too. To
infuse so many different aspects and influences into one unique sound,
that always pushes forward.”

Florida Georgia Line, in fact, has been a mentor of sorts to Lane – they
recognized his talent early on and took him on the road before anyone
barely knew his name. It was a good gamble – audiences loved his
high-energy, captivating performances, and other artists like Rascal
Flatts snatched him up as a tourmate, too. Tireless on the road and
always on all cylinders at every show, Lane attributes his work ethic to
his years as an athlete.
“I guess I’ve gone from playing baseball in stadiums to singing in
stadiums,” Lane laughs. Either way, he’s still hitting soaring homeruns
