Before NSAI’s annual “Nashville Songwriter Awards” Wednesday night (Sept. 19) at the Ryman Auditorium, CMA Vocal Group of the Year nominee LANCO was surprised by Sony Music Nashville with the news that their multi-week No. 1 hit “Greatest Love Story” has been certified 2X Platinum by the RIAA.

Directly after, LANCO performed the song before lead singer and the track’s sole-writer Brandon Lancaster was honored with the Songwriter/Artist of the Year award.

“Looking back on this year and thinking of how many doors ‘Greatest Love Story’ has opened for the band blows my mind. This is a song we all believed in since day one and night after night we continue to see how it resonates with more and more people,” said Lancaster. “2018 has proved that five guys can go from jamming in a warehouse to actually living out this wild dream. It just validates that we are on the right path and we can’t thank our fans enough for riding out this journey with us. It feels like it’s just the beginning.”
