Born in Comanche, TX, singer/songwriter Tony Lane grew up playing the bars in
Texas. Lane made the move to Nashville in the early 90’s and has been signed to Famous
Music Publishing (currently Sony Music) since 1997.
In 1998 he helped Lee Ann Womack avoid the proverbial sophomore slump when she
reached #1 with his song “A Little Past Little Rock.” Lane also had another hit by Womack
with the Top 10 record “Now You See Me (Now You Don’t)”.
Lane hit the top of the charts again when George Strait took his song “Run” to number
one in 2001. Lane’s powerful song “Letters From Home” recorded by Montgomery Gentry garnered considerable press and
appreciation from country music fans and families of armed service officers alike.
Sara Evans included Lane’s song “I Learned That From You” on her double platinum
album Born to Fly, and his song “Tattoos and Scars” was the title cut from Montgomery
Gentry’s debut. Tony’s other cuts include “This Ole Heart” (Terri Clark), “Bus To
Birmingham” (John Michael Montgomery), “That Was Us” (Tracy Lawrence), “Still One
Outlaw Left” (Confederate Railroad), “Between the Rainbows and the Rain”(Chris
LeDoux), and he has the title cut, “Comin’ On Strong”, for Trace Adkins most recent
Capitol Records release.
