Watch Now: Thanks to #1 success, LANCO feels like they've been "shot out of a cannon"

ABC/Image Group LAFollowing the #1 success of their single “Greatest Love Story,” LANCO is now celebrating the historic #1 debut of their first album, Hallelujah Nights.

The five-man band is the first group to claim the top spot with their initial effort since Lady Antebellum did in 2008. At Tuesday’s Country Radio Seminar in Nashville, lead singer Brandon Lancaster explained that LANCO isn’t an overnight success.

“We’ve been working on that thing for years,” Brandon told ABC Radio about the album. “And just seeing the single, ‘Greatest Love Story,’ do as well as it did, and then releasing this album, it’s been a lot of work and it kind of feels like there’s a tipping point where all of a sudden everything’s catching up and the hard work is paying off.”

Of course, things have been a little crazy for Brandon and the guys since their single took off. They’re currently part of Chris Young’s Losing Sleep World Tour, and in May, they head out with Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne on the Mountain High trek.

“Mentally and physically, we feel like we’ve been shot out of a cannon,” Brandon laughed. “But we’re not complaining. It’s a surreal thing that dreams are coming true. It’s awesome.”
