Lady A releases "Heart Break" video, donates $200K to Puerto Rico relief

Thursday, September 28, 2017 – Lady Antebellum released the video for its new single "Heart Break" today and also is donating $200,000 to relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

There is a connection with the video because Lady A traveled to San Juan for its Spanish colonial buildings and culture to provide the backdrop.

The donation will go from the band's LadyAID charity to hurricane relief efforts via MusiCares and United for Puerto Rico.

"We got to meet so many locals and enjoy everything that Puerto Rico has to offer. We are just completely heart broken to see the devastation," said Hillary Scott. "We want to do everything we can to support this incredible place and these incredible people. We just hope and pray for their safety and that rebuilding happens quickly. We encourage everyone to give whatever they can to help."

"We have always loved traveling to the Caribbean, and Puerto Rico was one of those places we've always wanted to go and couldn't have been a better location for this video," said Charles Kelley. "One of the coolest things was that all of the dancers in the video were people off the street. They already exuded such a vibrant energy that's part of the culture in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean as a whole."

"We save a portion of every ticket on the road to go toward LadyAID," said Dave Haywood. "After spending time in San Juan, we fell in love with the area, the culture, the people, and that country - it was just a beautiful place. Our hearts have been completely broken watching the devastation from all of the hurricanes. We feel personally connected to helping support those affected."

Directed by Shane Drake and shot earlier this year, the video follows a woman's journey through the town while enjoying the spontaneity and freedom of independence, with an unexpected twist at the end.

Ocean CD review - Ocean
Lady Antebellum may lean a little too closely to pop music for many tastes, but it's hard to argue with the trio's song choices. And its latest collection is filled with many memorable songs. The single "What If I Never Get Over You," poses a rarely asked pop song question. Humans have come to believe the cliché, 'Time heals all wounds,' as if it were some sort of scientific fact. But what if it's just that, a well-worn cliché, with no actual »»»
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. »»»

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 »»»
