LANCO MAKES HISTORY ON BILLBOARD’S COUNTRY AIRPLAY CHART

AND EMERGING ARTISTS CHART WITH FIRST NO. ONE HIT “GREATEST LOVE STORY”

Lead Singer Brandon Lancaster Becomes Only Country Artist In Over a Decade

to Perform and Pen First Chart-Topping Hit Alone

Band’s Authentic Style Resonates Nationwide Landing On Pandora and Hits Magazine “Watch List”

NASHVILLE,
TN – Nov. 20, 2017 – Sony Music Nashville’s breakthrough band LANCO
earns their first-ever No. One on the Billboard Country Airplay chart
this week with the GOLD single “Greatest Love Story” off their
self-titled EP. “Shaking up the Country charts” with “his confessional
style lyrics” (Entertainment Weekly), lead
singer Brandon Lancaster takes credit as the sole writer behind the hit,
marking the first time in over ten years an artist’s first No. One on
the chart has been solely written by the artist. Simultaneously, this
week’s top-selling new group reaches No. One on Billboard’s Emerging
Artist Chart ending Dua Lipa’s six-week reign at the top spot on the
all-genre chart.

“It’s absolutely
incredible to write a song that our entire band has believed in since
day one…and for our years of hard work to finally pay off,” said lead
singer Brandon Lancaster. “We built our foundation as a band on
‘Greatest Love Story’ because we believed in the power of Country music
story telling. To see how much it has resonated with so many people
makes us feel little less crazy for believing in it so much. We also
acknowledge the hard work effort that is put into achieving this from
our team, record label and Country radio and if it wasn’t for them we
would probably still playing this song to empty bars for anyone who
would listen.”

“Few bands have have generated as much buzz as LANCO” (Pop Culture) as they were just named one of Pandora‘s “2018 Country Artists To Watch” and were also hand selected as this month’s Hits Magazine
“Vibe-Raters.”  As their groundswell movement reaches new heights,
Lancaster reigns at No. One for a seventh consecutive week on the Top Country Songwriters
chart, based on streams, sales and airplay and he serves as the only
artist to reach this accolade in 2017. Critics nationwide have raved
about LANCO’s “Greatest Love Story,” leaving high exceptions for their
forthcoming full-length debut set for release in early 2018.

“A
tender first exposure for many listeners, but it just scratches the
surface for LANCO. The five-piece offers an energetic live show and
songs with an upbeat worldview, a welcome elixir for the pessimism of
modern times.” – Billboard

“A sentimental misfit’s anthem, powered by sweeping romanticism and emotive lyricism.”— Hits Magazine

“Served
as the backdrop for countless proposals this summer, with numerous fans
popping the question during LANCO’s live performances.” – Entertainment Tonight

“The
nostalgic single…is  the kind of love story from days gone by, the one
you learned about from your grandparents and their generation, when
times where simpler and so was love. It’s the love story we all still
want to believe in.” – CMT

LANCO’s self-titled debut EP can now count more than 100 million streams. Already named as “the band to watch” by Bobby Bones, CMT, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Spotify and more, LANCO gained their momentum from touring the country’s top festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Watershed, Faster Horses
and more. Opening for artists such as Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne
and Jake Owen, LANCO continues to make “notable first impressions” (The Desert Sun)
as direct support for Dustin Lynch’s THE RIDE OR DIE TOUR and will head
out in January for Chris Young’s LOSING SLEEP WORLD TOUR. Additionally,
LANCO was just announced as performers for the inaugural Rare Country Awards
(12/14) where they are nominated for “Best New Artist”. For more
