Chris Lane’s new single, “I Don’t Know About You,” has been climbing the charts since it was released in October 2018. Currently, the tune is No. 2 on both the Mediabase chart and Billboard Country Airplay chart, where it looks to make a push for No. 1 next week.
As Chris told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, the tune has become synonymous with a line from its chorus, instead of its title, which isn’t totally out of the norm. How many times have you heard someone refer to Tim McGraw’s “Something Like That” as the “Barbecue Stain” song or Chris Young’s “Gettin’ You Home” as the “Black Dress” song?
When it comes to “I Don’t Know About You,” Chris says fans have given it the alias of “Wrist Tattoo Bible Verse” song, which is actually the lyric from the chorus that initially grabbed him: “What’s your name, what’s your sign, what’s your birthday? / What’s your wrist tattoo bible verse say? / Tell me this, do you kiss on the first date? / Don’t hold anything back.”
“There were a lot of lines that stood out in this song, but the one line that stood out to me, honestly, is the same line that I think stands out to everybody else—the ‘wrist tattoo bible verse’ line, because people don’t call this song ‘I Don’t Know About You,’ which is the real name of it,” says Chris. “I don’t care if I’m in a grocery store or whatever, people will come up and say, ‘I love your “wrist tattoo bible verse” song’ [laughing]. So, people have associated that line as being the line of the song.”
Stay tuned next week to see if “I Don’t Know About You” (a.k.a. “Wrist Tattoo Bible Verse”) can dethrone Dierks Bentley’s “Living” at No. 1 while fending off Carrie Underwood’s “Southbound” at No. 3.
