In one of Chris Lane’s newest songs with Tori Kelly, he sings about a, “Take Back Home Girl” and what she’s like. The type of girl you want to take back to meet your momma. We caught up with Chris to talk about the holidays in a two part post. With Thanksgiving tomorrow, we thought we’d find out just what the holiday looks like for Mr. Lane.
B&B: What is one Thanksgiving tradition you have?
We usually have a large family meal on Thanksgiving. Every single person in our family shows up so we end up having 60+ people around the house. Everybody brings a dish, so there is a lot of food to go around!
B&B: What is your favorite dish at the Thanksgiving table?
There are too many to name! Definitely have to try the mac n cheese but ill also load up on some vegetables! The key is balance!
B&B: What is your favorite dish to cook? If you have the recipe handy, we’d love to share it.
I have a pretty simple BBQ chicken dish that’s usually my go to!
B&B: Are you a turkey or ham eater?
I’ll probably have to take the ham first.
B&B: Does the stuffing belong in the turkey or cooked separately? Is that a special kind of stuffing/dressing you like? ex. sausage, cranberry etc.
I am not a big stuffing fan; if it ends up on my plate, ill eat it though!
B&B: What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?
Definitely pumpkin pie!
B&B: Where will you spend your Thanksgiving?
Heading back to Kernersville, NC
B&B: Name 3 things you are thankful for this year.
Very thankful for the blessings I have experienced in my career. It has been a big year for me and I can’t thank everyone enough for listening. I’m also thankful for my health. Traveling so much it is easy to run yourself down, but this year my team and I have been lucky to dodge any sickness! Lastly, I’m just thankful for where everything is personally for me as well, my family is healthy, my friends are happy, so everything is just in a really good spot for me and I don’t take that for granted.
B&B: How soon is too soon to start decorating for Christmas?
I am a huge Christmas fan. No time is too early for me, so I may or may not already have a few decorations out!
