LANCO are starting 2018 strong by debuting at number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart with their debut album Hallelujah Nights.
The achievement makes them the first Country band in almost a decade to hit number one on the chart with their debut album. The last act to do it was Lady Antebellum with their debut album in 2008.
“Over the past five years we wanted to ride this dream as far as it would go and it’s hard to find the words to describe our debut record at the top of the chart,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “We couldn’t be more grateful to see people gravitating towards these new songs that represent who we are, and its been wild to see these crowds sing every line back to us.”
In 2017 LANCO topped the charts for two weeks with Greatest Love Story, the song that gave them their breakthrough. Their new single Born to Love You has already topped the iTunes Country chart putting in good stead to give the band their second number 1 single.
LANCO will make their first trip to the UK in March to perform at C2C: Country to Country 2018.
