Lady Antebellum Needs Your Help to Unlock a Special Announcement!

lady antebellum

Lady Antebellum announced today that their fifth studio album 747 will land in stores on Sept. 30th. The album’s sultry lead single “Bartender” is already soaring up the country charts to become one of their fastest rising singles. Nathan Chapman co-produced the 11-song disc with Lady A for the Capitol Records Nashville release.

“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now. We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters…taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s an urgency and an energy to it that we’ve never released before.”

“We are so ready to get this music out,” continued Charles Kelley. “To get the reaction we’ve gotten from ‘Bartender’ has only made us more fired up about the rest of these songs!”

“We had the opportunity to write with some new songwriters and really dig for outside songs that were songs we wish we’d written,” added Dave Haywood. “As we took them into the studio, we changed our approach and challenged ourselves to try some new things that were outside of what we’d done before.”

Lady Antebellum took the stage for an intimate performance and shared the stories behind some of their most well-known hits, as well as songs from their upcoming fifth studio album. The trio also collaborated with special songwriter guests Rodney Clawson, Tom Douglas, Josh Kear, Luke Laird, and Abe Stoklasa throughout the night.

Bentley was joined for a special CMA Songwriters Series taping by Jim Beavers, Ross Copperman, Brett James, and Jon Randall. In true Songwriters Series fashion, the taping included each performer telling the stories behind his hits while performing in an acoustic, in-the-round fashion. Bentley even called songwriter Jessi Alexander up from the crowd to join him in a surprise performance.

The specials will air on Public Television in October leading up to “The 48th Annual CMA Awards.”

We were lucky enough to be at the Dierks Bentley performance, and it was amazing! This is a not-to-be-missed show!
