Lady Antebellum Reveal Details About Upcoming Album “Golden”

Lady Antebellum, Golden

For seven-time GRAMMY winning trio Lady Antebellum, their upcoming fourth Capitol Records Nashville release GOLDEN out May 7 was figuratively – and literally – born on the move.

Not only that, she cut her teeth writing country songs (“Like My Mother Does,” “Fly Again”), so we’re gonna count it!

The 24-year-old songstress also talks about the song itself as a departure from her online debut of “Kill, F***, Marry” and her first album… all while getting a foot massage and eating a chicken sandwich.
