Lady Antebellum Already Halfway Through Recording Next Album
Lady Antebellum pulled an incredible five wins at the 2011 Grammy Awards for their 2010 album 'Need You Now,' and surprisingly, the trio says they're already halfway through recording their next record.
We reported that Lady A were heading into the studio to begin work on their third studio album just a month ago. Now the band is halfway to 'that's a wrap,' and Charles Kelley says they know this new record has some big shoes to fill. "We feel really great about what we've done so far," Kelley tells reporters, adding that he and Dave Haywood locked eyes after winning Record of the Year and shared a revelation. "We kind of had this moment where we said, 'We've got a lot of work to do.' It did put a little extra pressure [on us] in a good way -- this is our moment to really make this thing and make a good record."
Kelley said back in January that the most important thing to Lady Antebellum is to stick to their roots, and not let the success of the 'Need You Now' title track get to their heads. “We’re gonna try not to chase it, is what I’m sayin’. If we try to chase that too much, we’ll start to deviate from what made the sound of the group.”
“If we were to use the success of ‘Need You Now’ as the barometer for every other song, then we’ll probably be highly disappointed," he added.
At the speed they're going, we wouldn't be shocked to see a new record release date from the Nashville trio in the next few months.
