Cinderella Alert: Chris Janson & LANCO Battle For A Spot In The Elite 8

Who could’ve seen this coming?

Chris Janson and LANCO battling it out for a spot in the Whiskey Riff March Madness Elite 8? Here’s how we got there.

As a newly inducted member of the Grand Ole Opry, Chris Janson came out swinging with a first round thumping of Little Big Town and followed that up with a relatively easy defeat of Sam Hunt. Chris opened up for Sam on the 15 In A 30 Tour,  but hey, that’s why we play the game. LANCO, on the other hand, started out with a first round stunner against Lady Antebellum and found themselves in the middle of a second round dogfight with perennial “Entertainer of the Year” nominee Keith Urban. However, an incredible second-half comeback led LANCO to one of the biggest upsets in the tournament.

Right now, only 5 votes, YES 5 VOTES, separate Chris and LANCO from punching their ticket to the Elite 8. Do either one of these artists have what it takes to make it all the way to the Final Four? Well, I don’t know, but what I do know is that everyone loves a feel-good underdog story and we’re gonna ride this one til the wheels fall off.

Keep getting those votes in people. We’re making history.
