‘Heart Break’ Earns Lady Antebellum Their Fifth No. 1 Album
Even after a short hiatus, Lady Antebellum continue to be a force to be reckoned in country music. The trio's new album, Heart Break, has debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, giving them their fifth chart-topping album.
Heart Break also debuted at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. It follows the group's other No. 1 albums, their self-titled debut album released in 2008, Need You Now, Own the Night and Golden. The 2017 album's predecessor, 747, hit the No. 2 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood co-wrote 11 of the 13 songs on Heart Break.
"Over the last 10 years, Lady A has helped redefine the reach and sound of country music,” Cindy Mabe, President of Universal Music Group Nashville says in a press release about the project. "Their new album Heart Break sounds like nothing they’ve done before, yet those magical harmonies are instantly familiar. As Heart Break debuts at No. 1 this week, the band’s fifth No. 1 album, I am reminded how their music and touring has traveled the world and connected everywhere."
The band is currently on the road on the 2017 You Look Good World Tour, a massive gig that keeps their schedule jam-packed for most of the year. In addition to the U.S. and Canada, they're set for several dates in Europe and even two stops in South Africa. Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young are with them on the trek as opening acts.
