– Lady Antebellum is releasing I>Wanted You More
as the new single off its third disc "Own the Night," to country radio today.
Penned by the trio along with band members Jason Gambill, Jonathan Long, Dennis Edwards and musician Matt Billingslea, the song's melody was born during one of the group's daily sound checks on tour and was crafted into what became Wanted You More over the course of several tour stops.
"One of the added benefits of being out on the road so much is the time it gives us during the day to write," said Lady A's Dave Haywood. "The three of us love writing together, but it's always special when something starts organically with the guys in our band."
Lady A will debut the song on the season finale of NBC's "The Voice" tomorrow at 9 p.m. eastern where Justin Bieber, Flo Rida and Hall & Oates are also scheduled to perform. Fans can catch the tour this weekend in Jacksonville, Fla. (May 10), Tampa (May 11) and West Palm Beach, Fla. (May 12).
