Platinum selling recording artists Lady Antebellum have done it again with their newest collection of what could be one of their biggest albums. Best known for their #1 hits “I Run To You”, “Love Don’t Live Here”, and “Need You Now”, they are one of today’s most sought after groups.
This is the sixth studio album for Lady Antebellum called “Heart Break” set to be released on June 9th. Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley are super excited for this new musical endeavor and so are the fans.
“When we started working on this record, the goal was to give ourselves some space from the day to day,” said Scott. “Surrounding ourselves in a new environment with sunny beaches and warm weather really helped free our minds to focus solely on our art. We took some of our favorite writers and other writers we hadn’t worked with before to a new inspiring backdrop, where we were able to just write and soak up the journey. And it was on our first trip in Florida when we wrote ‘Heart Break’ that we felt it all click.” ~Hillary Scott, Lady Antebellum~
This new project has a broad range of creativity from heart pounding funky brass tunes such as “You Look Good” to soul touching ballads like “Hurt” where the dynamic voice of Hillary Scott is magnified over a cosmic blend of string arrangements and a light rhythm section.
With throw backs of pop from the 70’s on “Army” and hopping R&B style on “Think About You” your sure to find a favorite or two, maybe even more.
“Being together every day, living in a house together, that was the special ingredient this time,” continued Haywood, “And then in the studio, Busbee added a whole new layer. He’s such an integral part of this new chapter for us.” ~Dave Haywood, Lady Antebellum~
You’ll find 11 amazing tracks on “Heart Break” all written with the distinctive style of one of country musics most talented groups. It is intimate and from the heart. Lady A is set to hit the road with an outstanding line up of new music for the fans and they are sure to grace the crowds with old favorites.
“This record is really our story,” adds Kelley. “They have a universal feel to them, but there’s a lot of our personal stories here.” ~ Charles Kelley, Lady Antebellum~
After taking a short hiatus and entertaining solo projects the group is now in full swing to grace the stage with renewed energy and zest. Lady A has had 9 #1 hits, both ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” awards three years running, and a plethora of homage that includes Teen Choice Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and the People’s Choice Awards.
