About Lady Antebellum
Lady Antebellum’s upcoming album GOLDEN is out May 7 and was figuratively and literally born on the move. During the band’s 2012 Own The Night World Tour, Lady Antebellum made a point of experimenting with its road band as the miles of travel piled up. That behind-the-scenes interaction inspired much of the music on GOLDEN, an instantly infectious project in which Lady Antebellum discovered new edge for its already-successful foundation. “Downtown,” the album’s funky lead single, shows a new direction as it quickly became the fastest chart-topping single in the band’s career. Since their 2006 inception, the group had risen quickly to become country music’s most influential group. Lady Antebellum won the Vocal Group of the Year honour from both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music three times in a row. Nine of the band’s singles went Gold, with four surpassing the Platinum mark. “Need You Now” went on to sell over seven million downloads, according to the RIAA. Additionally, “Need You Now” claimed five of the trio’s seven career Grammy wins in 2011, including the all-genre “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year.” For more information, visit www.ladyantebellum.com.
