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). Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 27 for select cities as part of Live Nation's Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com and on www.ladyantebellum.com beginning Feb. 17. a

CD reviews for Lady A (formerly Lady Antebellum)

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 ...
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 ...
