Lady Antebellum’s ‘Need You Now’ Takes the Throne as Most Downloaded Country Song of All Time
If you've so much as even turned on the radio in the past year, it should be no big surprise that Lady Antebellum's 'Need You Now' is a popular tune. But knowing that the trio only truly walked onto the scene a few short years ago, it's a pleasant surprise that the single is now the most downloaded country song of all time -- surpassing Taylor Swift's hit 'Love Story.'
Swift may have 20 million album sales under her belt, but she's lost her crown for the most downloaded song. Lady A's can't-get-it-out-of-your-head hit, from their album with the same name, snuck by in 2010, and now sits proud on the throne.
Not only that, 'Need You Now' snagged Song of the Year, Record of the Year and 'Country Song of the Year awards at the 2011 Grammys, and the band took Album of the Year for the record at Sunday's ACMs.
Lady A are gearing up to kick off Keith Urban's Get Closer World Tour, which starts April 8 in Adelaide, Australia.
