Is Lanco’s ‘Born to Love You’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!
The emotional, sincere nature of "Greatest Love Story" is what gave Lanco such a powerful breakthrough on country radio, and they're bound to make a similar impact with "Born to Love You."
A fitting follow-up to the sweet hit, "Born to Love You" seems to pick up where "Greatest Love Story" left off, telling the story of undying love. It further demonstrates lead singer Brandon Lancaster's skills in writing a humble and relatable song. It's simple melodically — a refreshing sound compared to the monotonous pop-country beats that tend to dominate country radio.
The infectious melody is accompanied by adoringly heartfelt lyrics, "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." The song delivers a message that's universal enough that it can apply to couples happily in love, those thinking of the family members they miss or even the dreams we passionately chase.
Did You Know?: Lanco were offered a record deal on the spot after a team of executives at Sony Music Nashville saw them perform live.
Lanco's "Born to Love You" 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 / Born again in a church where the steeple's white / Preacher preach Book of John and my momma cried / Meaning of life was in verse two / Didn't make sense 'til I found you"
"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 / 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"
"I was a wild child between lost and found / Then you spoke my name, it was a sweet sound / Rescue kiss and you pulled me in / All my life baby, where you been"
