Congratulations to UMG NASHVILLE SVP/Promotion ROYCE RISSER, CAPITOL NASHVILLE VP/Promotion STEVE HODGES and his entire promo team for scoring this week’s #1 single on the MEDIABASE Country singles charts with LADY ANTEBELLUM’s “Compass.”
This is the second #1 from the group’s “Golden” album, following the debut single, “Downtown,” which topped the charts in APRIL of last YEAR.
It’s been a year of change so far for Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood.
The group’s groovy single “Downtown” signaled that something different was afoot musically, and, most importantly, they had an extended break after Hillary Scott gave birth to her daughter, Eisele.
That time off to regroup resulted in an upbeat new single, “Compass,” which you can hear now and purchase tomorrow. The tune does not appear on Lady A’s 2013 album, Golden, but will be available as a download via iTunes Oct. 1 or on the special-edition reissue Golden Deluxe, out Nov. 12.
“I immediately fell in love with the spirit of the song,” said Hillary, who is nominated along with her bandmates for CMA Vocal Group of the Year and Music Video of the Year. “As we made it our own, we decided we had to share it with the fans immediately. . . . We just couldn’t wait!”
Lady Antebellum sat down with Yahoo Music on Rolling Stone for an interview, be sure to check out the article and videos on the site, by clicking here.
Lady Antebellum have been enjoying the spunkiest and sauciest hit of their career with the chart-topping single “Downtown,” even as the videos and promotional appearances for it feature Hillary Scott looking ever-so-more pregnant. As the band takes the stage for an exclusive Yahoo! Music performance, the average viewer might not notice Scott’s expectancy all that much, thanks to the miracles of slimming black.
Still, there is that moment when Scott pleads “I don’t know why you don’t take me downtown anymore” that you might imagine her partner’s response reasonably being, “Um, because your water might break?”
Even with the blessed event being just weeks away — Scott’s baby girl, her first, is due in late July — the trio haven’t lost a step, and if anything, have been compressing about six months’ worth of the usual album promotion into roughly half that time.
“I can probably speak for everybody on our team and say it’s easier to promote a record when someone’s not pregnant,” Scott says. “For sure!”
“Fewer naps in the middle of the day,” adds Dave Haywood. It’s not clear whether the guitarist is speaking for Scott or himself when it comes to increased narcolepsy, but…
“The pacing has definitely had to be different,” says Scott, in the course of promoting Golden, their fourth album. “I mean, we’ve traveled to the same places that we always do when we promote records. But there’s this crazy thing that happens when you’re pregnant. Like, when the baby says, ‘Mom, I’m tired,’ your body just stops and you just kind of start staring through people and not even meaning to. But it’s been good. I haven’t been sick, which has been really nice. Thankfully, my energy level has been high.”
Keeping the energy level up was assuredly a priority during the creation of Golden… if you’ll forgive the segue. The group admits wanting to change things up after 2011′s Own the Night, even though there could just as easily have been an if-it-ain’t-broke attitude, since that release did produce two successive No. 1 country singles (“Just a Kiss,” “We Owned the Night”) and a third that fell just one position shy of the top slot (“Dancin’ Away With My Heart”). But as great as those romantic duets sounded on the radio, the trio noticed some potholes going unfilled on the road.
“With the big ballads and mid-tempos, especially in our live show, there’s only so many ways you can perform them and it not start to look really repetitive, with Charles and I singing to each other,” says Scott.
The video for Goodbye Town was released. I’ve added screen captures to the gallery. Also, all missing appearance photos from the last week have also been added to the gallery, sorry for the delay, as I have been working on a upcoming site that I will be sharing with all of you soon!
