Lady Antebellum's New Album, Own The Night

After sweeping the 2011 GRAMMY Awards earlier this year, the singer/songwriters returned to Nashville to focus on writing and recording the follow up to their top selling NEED YOU NOW. 

“We took more time to write and record this record than we've ever done before,” says Charles Kelley. “I remember looking at Hillary and Dave at the GRAMMYs this year, on the wildest night of our lives, and saying 'this is amazing…we'll never get to experience a moment like this again, but now we have to go home and get to work.'"

"We're definitely more in tune with each other musically and personally than ever," said Haywood. "It's an exciting place to be. This album was created from the ground up—we are writing these songs, playing these instruments and creating these arrangements.  With OWN THE NIGHT, more than ever before, I think we share a real feeling of accomplishment both as a band and as friends.”

“One of our favorite songs on the new record is called 'We Owned The Night,' which is about a special once-in-a-lifetime moment, and we thought that naming the album around that same sentiment was really appropriate," says Hillary Scott.  "It's also about the experience we want to create every night in concert for our fans…together, we own the night!"

My Thoughts:
I have to say that while I have been a HUGE country fan in the past, I haven't listened to much country music lately.  BUT I do LOVE Lady Antebellum.  While I do think that have just a hint of unmistakable country to them they simply are too amazing to be kept to one genre.  I have loved each other the singles that had previously been released but still wasn't sure what I wold think of this entire album.  I tend to stick to the stuff I know from the radio and don't typically listen to very many albums in their entirety.  But Lady Antebellum's Own The Night is amazing from start to finish.  There is a variety that keeps it from all sounding the same, yet it all has the unbeatable vocal quality you can't help but appreciate!  I can honestly say that this is a CD I would WANT to buy every song.  If you enjoy Lady Antebellum check out the entire new album, you won't be disappointed!!

Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary copy of this album for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own, honest personal feedback.


  1. I've never listened to her, but I'm gonna go take a peek at some samples and see what her sound is like now. Thanks!

  2. We love their music at our house. We were so bummed we already had plans when they came to town so we didn't get go see them. This might be a good stocking stuffer idea for DH!
