Wow, what can I say. This young man is wise so far beyond his young 15 years and he knows right where his heart and head are and what he hopes his future to be, deeply rooted and invested in the art of classic country music.
He was inspired by greats like Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and today’s country artist Sturgill Simpson. Lane also say’s he strives to give music lovers something personal, something real and not something manufactured from a machine.
He loves music and he enjoys listening to Cash, Haggard and Hank Williams but he’s still young and being a member of the Airforce Jr. ROTC (AFJROTC), school and friends are still a big part of where his heart is. With that said he puts academics first while striving to learn all he can about the music industry.
Growing up he said he was never really musically inclined but he actually got his first guitar when he was just 3 years old and sang his first song in public at a family reunion at the same age. He focused himself on school and things most kids would do growing up and then at the age of 12 he picked up the guitar with serious intent, taught himself to play and something just clicked. He said it felt right and even though it was still just a hobby it became a dream he wanted to make come true.
~“I love the music but right now school is really important and college is something I strive for. But I can’t say that if I were offered a contract that I wouldn’t take it. Let’s just say…..”I’m in”…~ Lane Roberson~
Randy Rich with Nashville Music Guide and Big Star Productions is co-managing and setting up Nashville contacts and writings sessions with this young man. Rich says, “I feel like this young man is a little George Jones country all the way.” With his new found mentor and supporter Lane is well on his way to introducing himself to the industry by working on a new song he wrote called “Doing It On Our Own”.
Lane has played many local venues in the Edmond OK area and continues to build a steady following. He has in the past hosted open mic night at Kendell’s Bar, that was open to the public where local artists would come in to share their talents. Other accolades include performing at the Centennial Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City and at a benefit for Emmy award winning artist Joe Burris.
“Country music was founded on the greats like Hank and Merle but in today’s world the ability to relate to country music has declined, the message is lost and things are too commercialized. I feel that the country music I make should be authentic, personal and not created by pushing a lot of buttons on a console. I deeply appreciate Mr. Rich and all his support. Without him I wouldn’t be where I am now on this great learning experience.” ~ Lane Roberson ~
