Lady Antebellum Is Back! Brand New Single, Tour, And New Album On The Way

In case you missed it, Lady Antebellum is back with a brand new single just released to country radio called “You Look Good”, a new album on the way, and a tour planned.

I was lucky enough to be one of the few who got to see them perform together live for the first time in public in over a year for a secret show that they streamed live on Facebook at OZ in Nashville.  It was a fantastic show that I wanted to basically go on forever! Check out the video clip below from the performance.

The new song “You Look Good” is an midtempo country song with just a touch of 70’s funk to it complete with a horn section. Just a very cool vibe, and it feels like they are having fun again after a break they took to work on some solo projects. The new album is slated to release later this year.

They also announced a new worldwide tour this year that will include Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young. Catch them on the road, it’s going to be a good one.

To buy their newest single, you can find it here: http://umgn.us/LadyApurchase
