Their next single, "Greatest Love Story," made it all the way to No. 1 and was used in episodes of Netflix's The Ranch and on ABC's The Bachelor.

Don't Quit Your Day Job
While playing gigs at local dives and honky-tonks, the band members still maintained day jobs. Thanks to drummer Trip Howell's job at a carpet warehouse, the band had a place to "sneak into" and practice together at night. Additionally, thanks to lead vocalist Brandon Lancaster's job working concessions at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, they were discovered. Apparently, Lancaster recognized music producer, Jay Joyce, during a Keith Urban concert. He immediately shut down his register and went to talk with him. He left with Joyce's phone number and eventually performed for him. They were later signed to Arista Nashville.
