Lady A thinks "You Look Good"

Wednesday, January 18, 2017 – Lady Antebellum returns to radio airwaves today with "You Look Good," the debut single off their sixth studio album, "Heart Break," (Capitol Nashville), to be released June 9.

After taking time to pursue solo projects last year, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood will return to the road, with more than 65 shows planned in six countries on their You Look Good World Tour.

Lady A will host a Facebook Live fan event at 9 p.m. eastern tonight premiering new music.

"We knew right away that we had to name this album after a track that is a play on the word 'heartbreak,'" shared Scott. "It's all about those personal growths everyone goes through and it was liberating to get back in the studio with Charles and Dave to intertwine those feelings into the recording process," said Hillary Scott, who released a religious album with her family last night. "I feel like we've reemerged stronger than ever, and I can't wait to share more music."

"We've always loved experimenting with different instruments and sounds in the studio, but we've never used horns before," said Haywood. "The energy they brought to this song is really fun and was validation for all three of us that it had to be our first single back."

"There's also something contagious about the chorus that will be perfect in our live shows this year," added Kelley, who also released and toured behind a solo album. "We knew after the time off that we wanted to get back out on the road in a big way. We couldn't be more ready to get back out there with the fans and hopefully make a few new ones too."

The tour opens May 26 in Bakersfield, Cal. with special guests Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young. The trio will head to South Africa for the first time, along with stops in Europe (overseas support may vary).

CD reviews for Lady Antebellum

Heart Break CD review - Heart Break
Lady Antebellum may cause you to throw out many of your country music principles. They don't sing and play traditional country music, for starters. They're not cool like more rocking Americana artists. In fact, they're huge mainstream country stars. So, why are some of us still suckers for their sound? And why does the new "Heart Break" sound so good on the ears? Well, it's simple, but complicated. Hillary Scott is simply a wonderfully sincere singer. »»»
747 CD review - 747
Six albums into its career, Lady Antebellum pretty much has the formula down pat. Either Hillary Scott or long and lanky Charles Kelley assumes lead vocals with Dave Haywood also providing vocals plus guitars and mandolin in a bunch of songs easy on the ears with a story often involving a lust for love. The typical song ("Lie With Me," for example) starts with Kelly or Scott taking a stanza, followed by the other with both then tackling the chorus together. This has worked quite well »»»
Golden CD review - Golden
Lady Antebellum probably needed a change in direction after "Own the Night" dropped in 2011. The material was overly geared towards taking dead aim at the radio jugular and not the best material. That isn't the case this time out on the trio's fifth release because most of the songs veer away from being obviously radio fodder (except for the current singleDowntown with its soulful beginning and strong vocals from Hillary Scott), but that also doesn't man that this was the right change. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album CD review - The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»

Jon Langford shifts musical gears as effortlessly as a European race car driver on a Grand Prix course.
