I just happened to catch this on the Tonight Show, and I love it when we get to see our favorite country star do their songs "LIVE".  A little background on:

Chris Lane;

Lane grew up in Kernersville, North Carolina and has a twin brother named Cory.  While attending Glenn High School he and his brother played football and baseball, and both went on to play baseball in college at UNC Charlotte. Due to Lane having a lot of surgeries it hurt his chances of playing ball so he learned how to play the guitar. In his hometown he worked for his father's landscaping business and started a cover band that played in High Point University cafeteria. In 2007, Lane and his brother auditioned for the seventh season of American Idol but did not make it to Hollywood. It wasn't until 2008 when Chris met Seth England of Big Loud Mountain management which launched Chris's career as an up-and-coming country music artist.

Lane's debut single, "Broken Windshield View", was released to country radio on June 10, 2014 by Big Loud Mountain. The song was written by Rodney Clawson, Shane Minor, and David Lee Murphy and produced by Joey Moi.  It was featured on Sirius XM's The Highway and iTunes' New and Noteworthy] It sold 11,000 downloads in its first week of release and reached number 45 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[As of August 2014, it has sold 43,000 downloads. It will be included on an upcoming extended play.

Lane released "Girl Problems" in August 2016. The album's first single, "Fix", was released to country radio on October 30, 2015. It reached number one on the Country Airplay chart in August 2016. The album's second single, "For Her", was released to country radio on August 29, 2016.

Tori Kelly:

Victoria Loren "Tori" Kelly (born December 14, 1992) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and actress who slowly gained recognition after starting to post videos on YouTube at the age of 14. When she was 16, Kelly auditioned for the singing competition television series American Idol. After being eliminated from the show, Kelly began to work on her own music. In 2012, she independently released her first EP that she produced, wrote, and mixed herself, titled Handmade Songs By Tori Kelly. The following year, Scooter Braun became her manager after seeing her videos on YouTube and introduced her to Capitol Records, with whom she signed in September. Kelly's second EP Foreword came out in October 2013 as her first major label release. On June 23, 2015, Kelly's debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released. The lead single, "Nobody Love", was released in February 2015 and became her first US Billboard Hot 100 appearance. Kelly was nominated for Best New Artist at the 58th Grammy Awards.
