Lady A is in a "Summer State of Mind"

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 – Lady A is out with a new single "Summer State of Mind" (BMLG Records).

Marking the first look at a new way of releasing music for the group, it is the beginning of more tunes to come. The trio plan to spontaneously release new music over the coming months, creating and connecting with fans in real time.

"When we got together and wrote this song a few months ago, it almost started writing itself," Hillary Scott said. "We were all looking ahead to the warmer months and those easygoing moments that we enjoy most. When we had a chance to perform the song for the first time during CMA Fest, the fans really got in the spirit. It was the perfect way to kick off the summer."

"Summer State of Mind" was written by Dave Haywood, Sam Ellis, Laura Veltz and Scott. The video will be released on Friday. During this month's CMA Fest, the trio debuted the new single, which will be featured during the CMA Fest primetime special (Aug. 3 at 7 p.m. on ABC).

Lady A also is launching its upcoming Request Line Tour with back-to-back nights at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, on Aug. 13. The shows are meant to foster audience participation as fans will be an interactive part of the show itself, using a special phone number (615-882-1975) to request Lady A songs. A portion of the ticket sales will go to LadyAID, the group's philanthropic fund which supports multiple initiatives around the world.

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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
