Chalk up another career milestone for Lanco.

As they celebrate the breakout success of their song “Greatest Love Story,” the guys recently made their debut appearance on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. The five-man band performed as part of the institution’s ninth annual Opry Goes Pink in support of the fight against breast cancer.

“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,” the band’s Brandon Lancaster says through their publicist. “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.”

Brandon wrote “Greatest Love Story,” which makes its success all the more special. It’s been 10 years since a country artist/songwriter has written such a strong chart success, according to his publicist. Others who’ve done so include Taylor Swift (“Our Song”), Zac Brown (“Free”) and Jennifer Nettles (“Stay”). Check their upcoming tour dates here.
