Lady Antebellum continue to break records and set the bar high for country music this week, as their latest single, ‘Just a Kiss,’ makes chart history. ‘Just a Kiss,’ the first single off Lady A’s forthcoming third studio album, debuts this week at No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, marking the highest debut for a country group in the chart’s 52-year history.

The single has also sold over 211,000 digital copies in its first week, earning the No. 1 position on iTunes’ country singles chart. ‘Just a Kiss’ is the trio’s highest charting radio single debut to date and fastest gainer, landing in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Country Singles chart after only two weeks.

“I’m just glad to be a part of Lady A’s success,” Dallas Davidson, the song’s co-writer, tells Taste of Country. “For them to break country music history has a lot to do with how hot they are right now and how great they are as a band. Me being part of the song is just a bonus in my career, but I have to give credit where credit is due. They are doing so great right now. I’m just glad my name was on it!”

Look for Lady Antebellum to perform ‘Just a Kiss’ on the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, which will air live from Las Vegas on Sunday, May 22 at 8:00PM ET on ABC.
