Lady Antebellum Bring Brains, Hustle and Heart to the Table
Lady Antebellum won big last week at the CMA Awards, as their song ‘Run to You’ took home Single of the Year, and they also broke Rascal Flatts‘ six year run at Vocal Group of the Year. Backstage at the awards show, Lady A stood in amazement while addressing the press.
“I think the three of us have dreamed about this our entire lives,” said Hillary Scott. “We feel so blessed to be able to wake up every day and do this for a living. I think we try to live with that mindset.”
Hillary says that her partners — Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood — each bring something of importance to the table which creates the perfect balance for the group.
“Dave is the brains of the operation. He has this brilliant production mind. He’s the glue that holds us together,” she said. “Charles and I are really Type A, and he’s completely Type B so it balances out really well. Charles is the go-getter. He’s always hustling. I’m always the one that like, ‘Let’s just hang out!’ They [say], ‘No – let’s write, let’s write!'”
“She brings the heart, though,” Charles interjected. “We would run this thing off the tracks if she wasn’t keeping us right down there and making us realize what’s important, and that’s staying together, enjoying this and sucking it up. Hillary doesn’t give herself enough credit.”
“And,” added Dave, “she’s the hottest one.”
Lady A’s latest single ‘Need You Now’ is currently in the Top 5 singles on Billboard. Their sophomore album, also titled ‘Need You Now,’ hits stores Jan. 26.
