LANco premieres "Long Live Tonight"
Thursday, June 30, 2016
– LANco celebrated the world premiere of its debut music video, "Long Live Tonight,"
this week by airing the clip in New York City on the Sony Digital Billboard in Times Square.
"Times Square is something you see in the movies or maybe get to visit in your life, but you never dream that one day your face will be on one of those giant screens," said LANco lead singer Brandon Lancaster. "This was truly a surreal and incredible experience."
LANco is Lancaster (lead vocals), Chandler Baldwin (bass), Jared Hampton (keyboards, banjo), Tripp Howell (drums), and Eric Steedly (lead guitar).
Directed by Peter Zavadil and produced by Jen Rothlein for Tiny Terror Productions, "Long Live Tonight" made its broadcast premiere exclusively on CMT.
"Long Live Tonight," which is on a four-song EP, will officially impact country radio on July 11.
