Chris Stapleton leads the country Grammy nominees…
LANco gets a #1 song and an album release date…

Chris Stapleton is the Grammy 2018 frontrunner in the country categories. He received three nominations: Best Country Solo Performance for "Either Way," Best Country Song for "Broken Halos" and Best Country Album for From a Room: Volume 1. Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Midland each earned two nods.
The Grammys air live on CBS on January 28th.

Hot on the heels of their first number-one hit "Greatest Love Story," LANco have announced their debut album, Hallelujah Nights.  
Frontman Brandon Lancaster says, "We all go through more of the same experiences than we realize, and songwriting is a process of observing those moments. Our stories have different people, different names, different places, but they all have the same emotions attached to them. To me, this album is about glorifying the reality of life.”
Hallelujah Nights comes out on January 19th.
