Lady Antebellum kicked off the 2014 American Country Awards on Tuesday night (Dec. 10), with a performance of their latest single, 'Compass.'

The trio, who were nominated for both Artist of the Year: Duo or Group and Single of the Year for their hit, 'Downtown,' sang as the thousands of audience members waved neon-flashing batons, giving off a highly-energetic start to the two-hour broadcast.

'Compass' is the third release from the deluxe edition of their latest 'Golden' album. After taking a break earlier this year while band member Hillary Scott enjoyed time at home with her new baby girl, Eisele, the trio will hit the road for their Take Me Downtown tour later this year.
