Country music’s 2017 breakout band LANCO may have released their romantic love song, “Greatest Love Story,” back in March of last year, but the gorgeous ballad still continues to stick in our heads to this day with its timeless groove and emotional lyrics.
Lucky for us, the five-man group — made up of members, Brandon Lancaster, Chandler Baldwin, Jared Hampton, Tripp Howell and Eric Steedly — released a new performance video of the single on Jan. 6, ahead of the release of their upcoming debut album, “Hallelujah Nights,” due out Jan. 19.
With his signature southern vocals, lead singer Brandon, who is also the sole writer of the catchy country tune, leans into the microphone to deliver the beautiful lyrics of the song. It tells the relatable story of a couple who parts ways in their younger years only to find each other again later down the road. Meanwhile, Brandon’s band mates, who can be seen surrounding him inside the rustic-looking performance venue, keeps the rhythm going on their respective instruments.
Speaking of “Greatest Love Story,” on Jan. 4 LANCO celebrated the two-week smash hit at the first No. 1 party of the new year. According to a press release, the group was also surprised with news that the song has been certified platinum.
Although “Greatest Love Story” was one of the biggest country love songs of 2017, it’s clear that the band’s momentum is only getting stronger, as they recently released yet another infectious and sweet new song. Their single, “Born To Love You,” which hit country radio on Jan. 8, has already been pleasing fans everywhere in their live shows. The song, which Brandon co-penned with Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Josh Osborne, touches on small town love just like “Greatest Love Story” does. You can check that track out here.
Both “Greatest Love Story,” and “Born To Love You,” will be featured on “Hallelujah Nights,” which was produced by Jay Joyce. The 11-track album is now available for pre-order at LANCOMusic.com.
