Chris Lane has achieved his first Platinum-selling single with Take Back Home Girl featuring Tori Kelly.
The singer was surprised with the news on stage at New York City’s Irving Plaza on Thursday night by Big Loud Records label President Clay Hunnicutt. Lane was presented with a plaque to commemorate the milestone moment.
“I’m literally at a loss for words,” Lane said to the crowd before thanking those who supported the song. “It takes a whole team of everybody, and Country radio I love you guys. Thank you so much for believing in me. To the fans, thank you so much for this. I love you guys. This is special. I can’t wait to hang this up in my house.”
Since its release, Take Back Home Girl has soared to the top tier of the Country radio airplay charts and racked up hundreds of millions of combined streams. The song was written by Hillary Lindsey, Josh Miller and David Garcia and it’s the lead single from Lane’s latest album Laps Around the Sun.
Lane is currently on the road with his headline Laps Around the Sun Tour. He has added four additional shows to the tour in January 2019 due to demand. The new dates are:
January 10 – Dubuque, IA – Five Flags Center
January 17 – Athens, GA – Georgia Theatre
January 18 – Greenville, SC – Blind Horse Saloon
January 19 – Charlotte, NC – Coyote Joe’s
In 2019 Lane will hit the road in the US and Canada as direct support on the Dan + Shay Tour starting in March.
