They will be taking their electric live show to the UK this week for their first of three London performances.
We’ve played close to 400 shows since we met and formed LANCO about five years ago, and every one of those shows…especially the ones in the early days for only like 6 people…were such an important part of this journey we’re on as a band,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “It’s much easier to see that now and to understand that every long drive we made in that old RV was helping us get to today. Last week, we lost our minds when we heard we had two ACM nominations, tonight we are playing the Opry and tomorrow we are leaving for the UK to start telling the story of LANCO overseas. For a group of guys who got our start jamming in a carpet warehouse and playing house parties just a few years ago, this is beyond our wildest dreams!”
In an incredible year of firsts, the “arena-rock leaning band” states Entertainment Weekly, became the first country group to debut on the Billboard Country albums charts at No. One in 10 years and this summer they will hit the road for their first amphitheater run as special guests on Dierks Bentley’s 2018 “Mountain High Tour”.
