Chris Lane scored his third No. 1 single as “Big, Big Plans” topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.
Penned by Chris, Jacob Durrett and Ernest Keith Smith, the tune marks Chris’ first No. 1 single as a songwriter. Chris wrote and recorded the tune as part of his surprise proposal to now-wife Lauren Bushnell. The couple shared their first dance to the song at their wedding in 2019.
“As an artist, the most rewarding thing for me is writing a song and hearing fans sing it back, and make it part of their own story as well,” says Chris. “It’s been so much fun to see the way such a personal song for me has impacted other people over time. From proposing to my wife, to seeing others’ proposals at shows and on social media, to it now hitting number one on country radio is unbelievable. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Chris scored his first No. 1 single with “Fix” in 2016, followed by “I Don’t Know About You” in 2019.
