Tony Lane hails from the great state of Texas. Born in the small town of Comanche, he cut his teeth playing the bars of Dallas and Ft. Worth. He eventually found his way to Nashville, Tennessee and to Famous Music, where he signed his first publishing deal. Tony experienced his first commercial success with Lee Ann Womack’s “Little Past Little Rock”, which hit number one on the Billboard charts. This hit was followed by many others, including George Strait’s “Run”, Tim McGraw’s “I Need You”, John Michael Montgomery’s “Letters from Home”, Lady A’s “Hello World”, Trace Adkins’ “This Ain’t No Love Song” and “I Wanna Feel Something”, and Easton Corbin’s “Roll with It”. His most recent hit, “On My Way to You”, was recorded by fellow Texan Cody Johnson. Tony received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song for “I Need You”, which featured a duet with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
Tony continues to write extensively with the Nashville songwriting community. He has enjoyed recent cuts by Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and Chris Jansen.
