Chris Lane is grateful for the prayers and well wishes of fans as he grapples with a family crisis. Her father, Tony, recently underwent surgery as part of cancer treatment, he revealed on Instagram on Thursday (January 20). So far, he explained, the operation has been a success.

“You all, I appreciate all the prayers. My dad’s surgery went well today,” he said on social media (quote via People.) “He’s recovering now. We’re still praying that he gets well and really praying that they have it all figured out.”

He added a message of thanks to those who had kept his family in their thoughts, saying, “I really appreciate everyone who reached out, and every one of you who prayed. I love you all.”

Lane did not share any details about the type of cancer his father is battling, or how long his treatment will last. However, he has long been open about how important his dad is to him, reflecting on their long-standing bond in 2019: “My dad went through everything and anything with me,” he told Taste. of Country.

“He never missed any of my games, from Little League to my high school and college games. And although sports were my first love, my dad consistently stuck with me in terms of music and supported no matter what.”

In fact, the singer is close to both of his parents. Last year, he paid a sweet tribute to his mother titled “That’s what moms are for”.

Since last summer, Lane has also been a dad: he and his wife Lauren welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Dutton, in June 2021.
