Lady Antebellum Goes Platinum, Shares Plans For New Album


While we were down, one of country music’s hottest groups, Lady Antebellum, revealed plans for a brand new album! Lady A is set to release their sophomore album, Need You Now, on January 26, 2010. The lead single from the album, “Need You Now” (which is also the title track), has become the fastest rising single of the trio’s career…making it’s way into the top 10 after just 9 weeks on the charts.

“This song, and what we’ve finished of the new album so far, is all about passion,” explains guitarist/vocalist Dave Haywood. “There’s a real sense of urgency and fire…almost like a spark has reignited us creatively in the studio…so when we started talking about album titles, ‘Need You Now’ felt like it summarized our vibe right now perfectly.”

The same day Lady A announced plans for their new album, they learned that their self-titled debut album was certified Platinum by the RIAA for over one million in sales.

“This is just beyond anything we ever could have imagined when we sat down to write our first song together in 2006,” said an overwhelmed Hillary Scott upon learning about their Platinum status. “I wish we could thank every one of the fans personally…that would be the coolest thing in the world for us. Everybody always says they have the best fans in the world, but ‘everybody’ hasn’t met Lady A’s fans…they are truly the best!”

Congrats to Lady A!
