AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Lady Antebellum
Song:Just A Kiss
Album:Own The Night
In a short period of time, Lady Antebellum has become one of the most popular groups in music. That is likely to continue when their next CD is released in May. Though they live in Nashville and are primarily a country act, there is no question they are a mix of country and pop. Lady Antebellum was formed in 2005. Hilary Scott grew up in Nashville and is the daughter of 90s country music singer Linda Davis. Charles Kelley is from Georgia and is the brother of country music singer Josh Kelley. He moved to Nashville in 2005 and talked his friend Dave Haywood into moving to Nashville so they could write songs together. Scott met Kelley at a Nashville club and Lady Antebellum was born. They signed with Capitol Records in 2007 and appeared on the Jim Brickman single Never Alone. Producer Paul Worley left Warner Bros. for Capitol to work with Lady Antebellum. He has produced Big & Rich and Dixie Chicks. So Lady Antebellum's mix of pop and country is no accident. They have released five CDs including two Christmas CDs and their next CD Golden will be released in May. Just A Kiss was the first single from the 2011 CD Own The Night. It topped the country charts and reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band wrote the song with veteran songwriter Dallas Davidson. Their other big crossover hit was Need You Now in 2009. Their first single from Golden Downtown is currently on the charts. The group has won all kinds of awards. Hilary Scott recently announced she is pregnant. Lady Antebellum is currently on tour but they will have to come off the road at some point. Hilary's husband is the band's drummer. I expect the new CD to blow up. Here's the video for Just A Kiss by Lady Antebellum.
