Emerging Sony Music Nashville band LANCO made their Grand Ole Opry debut last night (Oct. 24) during the ninth annual Opry Goes Pink. The five-man band received a standing ovation after offering up a performance of “Trouble Maker” off their self-titled EP, a medley of Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight” and “Song of the South” along with their Top 10 single, “Greatest Love Story.”

LANCO was surprised with the news that “Greatest Love Story” has been certified Gold by the RIAA for selling over 500,000 units, and it shot to the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Country Chart as they walked offstage.

“It was an honor to make our Grand Ole Opry debut during such a special night and take the stage that is the original home to the entire country music genre,” said lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “Since I was six-years-old I remember sitting in those pews and seeing acts like Alabama so to have our families out there watching us was a full circle moment.”
