Lady Antebellum Reveal Their ‘Golden’ Rules, Talk ‘Downtown’ Sound


Golden, the new album from Lady Antebellum, hit stores Tuesday (May 7). The trio (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood) recently explained why they decided to step outside the box and how they found their new sound.

It’s the fourth studio album from the trio (Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood), and it’s already spawned one major hit, the chart-topping single “Downtown.”

According to Charles Kelley, “Downtown” was one of several songs on Golden that was inspired by their live performances.

“There were spots in the set where [we thought], ‘Man, I really wish Hillary had an ‘I am woman hear me roar song,'” Kelley told Radio.com.

“Downtown” was the group’s seventh No. 1 single, an achievement that Dave Haywood said “never gets old.”

“It’s incredible to feel that, especially going into a new record, that’s what’s most exciting,” said Haywood.

Golden presented an opportunity for the band to push themselves in new ways.

“We wanted to make sure that we didn’t keep regurgitating the same music,” Kelley said. “We wanted to take some chances…and make more of an upbeat record this go-round.”

Hillary Scott saw the fan reaction and radio success as a reward for their leap of faith.
