Kurt Van Meter opens for LANCO
Sponsored by Linn-Benton Tractor and Pioneer Connect

LANCO, 8:30 pm

Multi-Platinum selling band LANCO continues to forge new territory after the roots-frontier explorers and live-performance junkies broke out with the 2x Platinum multi-week No. One hit “Greatest Love Story." Creating a heartland rocker for a new generation, the band followed up with the Billboard Country Albums chart topper HALLELUJAH NIGHTS, marking the first Country group to earn a No. One debut in a decade. Additionally LANCO garnered another PLATINUM certified hit with "Born To Love You", before the launch of their new anthemic HONKY-TONK HIPPIES EP, which was self-produced by the band, with each track penned by at least two members. The group traveled to the iconic Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL to record the new music, absorbing its heart-pounding and soul-shaking influence. Now set to release five new tracks fit perfectly for the road. New music from the ACM “New Group of the Year” follows multiple nominations from the CMT, CMA, ACM, AMA and iHeartAwards, while Lancaster became the first member of a group to win NSAI’s “Songwriter/Artist of the Year” award. As LANCO continues to "bring the full-band sound back to Country" (Newsday) the five-man band will build off their deep-rooted connection with fans on their headlining HONKY-TONK HIPPIES TOUR.

Opening for LANCO is rising county music star Kurt Van Meter. Kurt’s story is that of true American folklore . From an early age riding shotgun in his Dad’s pick up in Southern Oregon, to his football career at Oregon State University, to his stint as a Law Enforcement Officer, to his days riding bulls and listening to the all time great country artists like Kenny Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and even Box Car Willie while working the fields.... Kurt Van Meter doesn’t just sing about country music ideals — he has lived them.
