Lady Antebellum Debut ‘Heart Break’ Title Track During Nashville Show
Lady Antebellum rocked the country music world with the release of its new single "You Look Good" on Thursday (Jan. 19) and then took to the stage to introduce even more new music. In a Facebook Live video from a live broadcast in Nashville, the trio perform two new songs, in addition to the current single.
"We had butterflies this morning and still have butterflies," Charles Kelley, one third of the trio, says to the crowd about the overwhelming reaction to "You Look Good." Kelley goes to to say that the group wanted to throw fans a "curve ball" with the new track and incorporate Hillary Scott's love of horns, which she's been wanting to do since the band formed.
Lady A also performed two other songs from forthcoming album, Heart Break, including the title track (at about 27 minutes), saying they felt like they had a direction for the project after writing this song. "It's about letting your heart take a break," Dave Haywood explains, referring to "serial daters" who jump from one relationship to the next. The band also debuted "Somebody Else's Heart," a sweet song with a melody reminiscent of the single "Goodbye Town" off its 2013 chart-topping album, Golden.
The new album Heart Break is set for release on June 9. The band hits in the road in May on the You Look Good Tour, taking its all across the America. The tour also covers three continents and six countries, including South Africa, where Lady A will perform for the first time. Kelsea Ballerini and rising newcomer Brett Young will be joining the superstar trio on tour as opening acts. Look for them at WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn. this August.
