Hot off the chart-topping success of ‘Greatest Love Story,’ from their debut album ‘Hallelujah Nights,’ LANCO recently released another soon-to-be hit titled ‘Born to Love You.’ The five-member band consisting of Brandon Lancaster, Chandler Baldwin, Jared Hampton, Tripp Howell, and Eric Steedly, has created a tender, yet upbeat love song.
‘Born to Love You’ starts off with crisp guitar picking which leads into the opening lyrics. I was born in a town full of red pine trees. County sign says “follow your dreams.” Westbound train makes the whole town shake. Friday night lights decide your fate. These words can describe any small town in America and bring the listener right back to their carefree younger days. The tempo picks up when the chorus begins. You’ll surely have your feet tapping along with the percussion to: Looking in your eyes, yeah it’s all so clear. Every time you smile, I know why I’m here. Wherever I go and whatever I do. I was born to love you, I was born to love you. Words like this get us thinking about how much love we have for that special someone in our own life.
Lead singer, Brandon Lancaster, told Nash Country Daily that ‘Born to Love You’ is about “Who we all are, the small towns we came from and the search for what the world has to offer.” He went on to say: “This song brings together those early experiences with finding that person who makes it all matter… The person that you were born to love.” LANCO has used their own upbringing and life experiences to construct this infectious song. ‘Born to Love You’ is surely a fresh, feel-good love song that you’ll look forward to listening to again and again.
‘Born to Love You’ was penned by lead singer Brandon Lancaster, Ross Copperman, Ashley Gorley and Josh Osborne. LANCO, a ‘new to the scene’ country band got their start in a pretty non-traditional way. CMT News reported that Lancaster was working a concession stand register at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena during Keith Urban’s Light the Fuse tour in 2014. He spotted GRAMMY-winning producer Jay Joyce walking by. “I told him I was a fan and a little bit about what I did. We talked about writing and the band, and he ended up inviting the guys and myself out to the studio to play him some music.” Joyce ended up producing the chart-topping album ‘Hallelujah Nights.’ LANCO certainly has a unique story of how they came to be.
Hopefully you were lucky enough to catch LANCO at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA back in February. Currently, LANCO does not have any New England tour dates scheduled. Our fingers are crossed that they add one or two for this summer!
Favorite Lyrics: I could search the world from south to north. But I’ve already found what I’m looking for. Wherever I go and whatever I do. I was born to love you, I was born to love you.
