Lady Antebellum Earns 9th #1 with “Bartender”

lady antebellum

Lady Antebellum has tipped the charts with their white-hot single “Bartender,” taking the No.One spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts this week. The track is the lead single off their upcoming fifth studio album 747, out Sept. 30th.

“There are enough sad, sulking breakup songs out there already,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We went into this wanting to put a spin on it and take the approach that the only way to get over it is to get out on the town with your girls! It’s also insanely fun to perform, and the three of us have had a blast pumping up the tempo and going all out on it. It’s been a great lead single to set up 747!”

Lady Antebellum’s upcoming fifth studio album 747 follows over 11 million albums sold worldwide, nine trips to No. One on the country radio charts, five Platinum singles and seven GRAMMY awards. The band is currently wrapping up their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR, which saw thegroup hit 80 cities in Canada and the US.

Michael W. Smith Enlists the Help of Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum & MORE for Christmas Album!

michael w smith

Michael W. Smith partnered with Rolling Stone Country today to announce the September 30th release of Michael W. Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas, featuring an all-star lineup of guests – Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Amy Grant, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Nettles, Bono and Michael McDonald.

“This is the most unique and unusual record I’ve ever done in my 31-year career. The entire record was sequenced together before we recorded one song,” recalls Smith. “Sonically you’re hearing me in a way that you’ve probably never heard me before. At one point it’s like Smitty meets Bublé. There’s my granddaughter’s voice singing the song from ‘Home Alone,’ plus the whole orchestral and symphonic feeling of Christmas, mixed together with all these amazing voices and guests – yet it all fits together in a remarkable way.”

When we started talking about who could be on this record with him, the list got really narrow really fast,” remarked co-producer Robert Deaton. “There’s a difference between a singer and an artist, or a celebrity and an artist. While we were fortunate to have these amazing guests on the record, it all feels like a cohesive piece and you never leave the fact that it’s a Michael W. Smith record. That was important. That, along with working with co-producer David Hamilton, who is the resident genius, was amazing. This entire process has just been phenomenal.”

This fall, Smith will bring holiday cheer to audiences across the country as he launches “The Spirit of Christmas Tour.” Smith’s long-time friend and fellow GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant will co-bill with him in Dallas, Minneapolis and Atlanta. Tickets for many shows are on sale now. For a full list of tour dates, and ticket information, visit michaelwsmith.com/tour.

Lady Antebellum will headline the Jack Daniel’s New Year’s Eve Bash on Broadway. Music City will once again offer one of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations in the country with a free concert and Nashville’s own midnight “Music Note Drop®.”

“In just six years, the event has rapidly grown to be one of the biggest New Year’s Eve productions in the country,” said Ken Levitan, chairman of the NCVC board of directors and president of Vector Management. “It’s a major draw for visitors and locals alike, generating a tremendous amount of revenue for Nashville. The event has grown every year and drawn international attention to Music City. Lady A assures that we continue that upward trajectory.”

“We’re so looking forward to celebrating New Year’s this year in our hometown,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “It’s such a magical time of year, so getting to be home with our friends, family and all of Nashville downtown on Broadway will be such a fun way to ring in 2015!”

The Bash on Broadway has grown exponentially since its inception, with the 2013 event generating $13.6 million in direct visitor spending. City officials estimated a record 85,000 people lined the streets of Broadway to experience the live concert series, Music Note Drop® and fireworks display, up from 55,000 in 2012.

Jack Daniel’s Bash on Broadway is produced by the NCVC for the city of Nashville and presented by Jack Daniel’s. The celebration is sponsored by Advance Financial, Anderson Benson Insurance, Carl Black Chevrolet, McDonald’s, Durango Boot, Korbel, Miller Lite and Coors Light.
