Lane's mother was a talented performer in the Houston, Texas music scene. Her sister forged quite a career for herself, as well. "I didn't so much compare myself to her, but she was valedictorian, a soccer player and a book nerd. I was like, 'I wish I could find something I could love as much as my sister loves soccer,'" Lane says in press materials.
"So, when my Mom put me in a theater group when I was in first grade, that became my outlet. I was bitten by the entertainer bug. When I got to do 'Grease' I wanted to know every part. I wanted to dive into the story. With my love for stories, it just made sense initially that I get into country music."

In high school, Lane and her family moved to Los Angeles. During her studies at the University of Southern California, she started taking a songwriting class to develop her skills. "We analyzed all the great songs, beginning with a Beatles song on our first day," she says. "I fell in love with it because it helped me remember how exciting the idea of telling stories through music could be. I wasn't being fulfilled in my acting classes because I wasn't telling my own story. As a songwriter, I could have much more creative control."
Lane's single "You Got Me" and previous release "Devil and You" are the first pieces of music since her 2016 self-titled studio record.
