LANCO’S ACOUSTIC SET ECHOES THROUGH THE ROTUNDA
AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM YESTERDAY
Breakout Band Spotlights The Institution’s New Troubadour Membership Program
NASHVILLE, TN – Aug. 10, 2017 – Yesterday (8/09), Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum enlisted Sony Music Nashville band LANCO to introduce millennials to its new Troubadour membership program, Recognizing the importance of the band’s Music City origins and their nod to preserving Country music, Hall of Fame and Museum director Kyle Young was on-hand as each member of LANCO signed their own membership.
Afterwards, several hundred Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum visitors and staff members gathered for LANCO’s acoustic set in the iconic rotunda, which included their rising hit single “Greatest Love Story.” Additionally, lead singer Brandon Lancaster gave a special dedication to the late Glen Campbell, as his Hall of Fame plaque was covered in flowers nearby.
After taking photos with fans, Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ben Hall gave LANCO a private tour, highlighting the evolving history and traditions of the genre. Fans who were unable to attend the event can revisit LANCO’s performance on CMHOF official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/countrymusichof/videos/10155316957759550/
Since the release of their self-titled debut EP, LANCO has impacted fans throughout the country with their current single “Greatest Love Story.” Penned solely by lead singer/guitarist Brandon Lancaster, it showcases the “nostalgic telling of young love between an all-American girl and a troublemaker separated by life and brought back together again,” (Taste of Country). The band wrapped recording on their debut album with award-winning producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Cage The Elephant, Little Big Town) earlier this month. Named as “the band to watch” by Bobby Bones, CMT, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Spotify and more, LANCO gained their status from touring the country’s top festivals including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Watershed, Faster Horses and more.For more information on LANCO and upcoming tour dates, visit www.LANCOMusic.com.
