Lady Antebellum Debut New Song ‘Just a Kiss’ at Houston Rodeo
Lady Antebellum performed an intimate new song, ‘Just a Kiss,’ during their performance at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Friday night.
Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley sat perched on stools, serenading one another with verses from their latest love song at the front of the rotating rodeo stage, while fellow bandmate Dave Haywood led them on piano.
The 70,000 people packed into Houston’s Reliant Stadium grew quiet as the Nashville group debuted ‘Just a Kiss,’ a subtle song about easing into things slowly, with no need to rush.
The chorus describes the longing for a goodnight kiss, but an inability to risk losing a good thing:
“Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight / Just a touch of the fire burning so bright / I don’t want to mess this thing up / I don’t want to push too far / Just a shot in the dark that you just might / Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life / So, baby I know why / Just a kiss goodnight.”
The song was a hit in Houston, and we can’t help but wonder if ‘Just a Kiss’ will lead Lady Antebellum’s third album, which is slated for later this year. The five-time Grammy winning country trio will have some big shoes to fill following ‘Need You Now’ — and this new song may just be a perfect fit.
