Lane's STAR Cause:
There's no doubt Lane Brody was meant to bring music to many hearts. She
began singing at the age of five and wrote her first song at twelve. While still in her teens, a stint singing TV jingles
launched her career (McDonalds, 7UP, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Juicy Fruit gum and many more!) That led her to land a role
in the hit TV series, TAXI. Then, in ABC's Heart of the City, Lane played the role of country singer Jenny Jamison.
In the movie, Lane got to perform three songs, one of which was her own. Not long after, she signed with GRT Records, and
her debut single hit #1 in country markets. About this time, industry biggies were beginning to talk - it seems that Lane's
success in both the television and music industries hindered many. People wanted to put her in only one category (recording
artist OR actress), when clearly, she was capable of both. So, Lane walked away from her highly successful career in search
of a way to record the music she loved AND to do it the way she wanted. Lane's latest album, Pieces of Life, is a testament
of hard work and listening then following where your heart leads you.
Aside from music, Lane's passion lies with animals.
She and her husband Eddie have nine dogs AND a talking starling named Fevronia Star. When she is not in the studio or on stage,
you may often find Lane rescuing injured animals off the side of the road - several of her own "babies" were strays who wandered
into her yard. She puts much heart into organizing and hosting her Lane Brody Annual Wildlife Benefit Concert, which she started
in 2001. Her events have attracted the likes of Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, Brad Martin, Thom Bresh, Dobie Gray, and others;
together. Together, they join forces and voices in helping Walden's Puddle continue to provide care to sick, injured and orphaned
native Tennessee wildlife and provide educational experiences to the community, allowing for a greater understanding and appreciation

Lane's hit song "Over You" from the film Tender Mercies was a hit in its
own right. But, turns out, it was also used as a theme for a Braziliian soap opera!! Because of this, Lane has aquired many
fans from South America. The following video clip is a tribute to Lane from fans in South America: http://youtube.com/watch?v=elAo9LNuuBw
Lane is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on her new album On The Wings of Songs
which is set for an early July release on Records Records. The album title is taken from the title track, which she co-wrote
with acclaimed songwriter Kostas, who also sang backup on the song.
"She's not only the best singer in today's review pile,
she also has one of the outstanding songs of this or any other year" renowned music critic Robert K Oermann says of the new
single "That's Where Love Comes In."
He continues, "A sensationally well written and socially conscious song in the throat
of one of our finest singers. If you aren't moved by this message, you're made of stone." A video, filmed by award winning
Australian director Ross Wood, has already been uploaded to Lane's website - click on the News page to watch it.
Where Love Comes In," Lane's NEW single has been shipped to radio. The video for it has been added into rotation on CMT and
