Chris Lane debuts one of those songs that make you want to stop and listen with his new single Her Own Kind of Beautiful. A little less bro-country and a little more pop-country, the track is the featured song on his iHeartRadio Rising Star contest, where he’s vying for for the opening performance slot at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The feel-good song has summer vibes written all over, with a melody doused in sunshine, it practically makes you smell the summer barbecue and sunblock in the air. It’s exactly the kind of track you’ll expect to hear on the radio this summer, which is why Chris has been named an Artist To Watch by Spotify, Tenn Vogue, and Glamour (just to name a few).
If you’re looking for something to throw on while you’re packing people in to your place for the first outside gathering of this summer, I suggest throwing Her Own Kind of Beautiful on your stereo. It’s one surefire way to get the groove going right off the bat.
