We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
“Greatest Love Story” was written solely by the bands front man, Brandon Lancaster. And, Brandon said that the song was taken from his relationship with his then girlfriend Tiffany, who he had been dating since he was 19 years old.
He said that the idea started with the line of “being nothing but a trouble maker and she was this all American girl.” And, from there, he went on to use his own relationship as inspiration, but he also combined that with things that he had observed from watching his friends’ lives.
Well, Brandon played it for the guys in the group. And, at first, he thought that maybe it was something that was too personal and they wouldn’t hear it like he did, but the other guys in the group were all onboard to record it.
Brandon, who is now married to Tiffany, says that the song has taken on new meaning to him, and it is now about the next chapter in his life with his wife.
From LANCO’s debut album, Hallelujah Nights, here is this week’s The Song Remembers When – ‘Greatest Love Story.”
