They’re the first band to open at #1 with a debut album in ten years.
Ahead of their first trip to the UK next month for C2C Festival, platinum-selling breakthrough band LANCO claim the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart this week with Hallelujah Nights, marking the first Country band to open at No. 1 with a debut album since Lady Antebellum in 2008.
Featuring their two-week No. 1 hit Greatest Love Story and their new single Born To Love You the “collection puts an anthemic spin on young love and small-town life” (The Tennessean) and has dominated the top of the iTunes Country chart since its release.
“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.”
