TN – Dec. 19, 2014 – Lady Antebellum’s 2014 flight path left no town
untouched over an exhilarating year that included an 80-city headlining
tour, a career 9th No. One hit with the Platinum certified “Bartender,”
their fifth studio album 747 which pushed toward a newer, bolder sound,
and soon they’ll be closing it out with an internationally televised
performance to ring in 2015 on 
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on ABC. 
year has been hands-down the most rewarding year of our career so far,”
said Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “It seems like it was just January when
we were itching to get out on the road to start testing new music. Now,
for it to be December having spent a year connecting with fansaround the
world, it feels like we’re more in-tune than ever.”  
2014 was a year of
pushing limits, taking chances and growing constantly. The trio who
stayed on the move tirelessly hit the ground running, kicking off the
year with their headlining North American TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR, which
captured the speed and spirit of the group’s unique live dynamic, with
the Dallas Morning News declaring “Lady Antebellum shows off its warranted leap to superstardom.”
The stretched their
boundaries with the release of the summer’s biggest breakup anthem,
“Bartender,” notching their career 9th No. One hit. The PLATINUM
certified multi-week chart-topper served as the lead track off their
fifth studio album, 747, which reverberated the electricity of
new relationships, of new music and of new ways of recording. The
emotionally-charged album was met with praise from fans and critics
alike for its “airtight harmonies” (New York Times) and “the group’s move away from its comfort zone is a worthy venture” (Billboard).
747 is the
album that gave us a chance to dig into what we really loved and what
makes the band we are musically,” continued Dave Haywood. “By combining
the core of what Lady A is while still experimenting with some new
ideas, we were able to challenge ourselves to make an something we are
really proud of.”
Between stacked tour dates, an album release and national television performances including Good
Morning America, American Idol, TODAY, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,
The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The 48th Annual CMA
Awards, The 49th Annual ACM Awards, CMT Music Awards, The American
Country Countdown Awards
and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards,
Lady A also planned a uniquely designed 7FOR7 project, where they
granted seven surprises for seven fans across the country in seven days.
“7FOR7 was easily my
favorite part of this year,” added Hillary Scott. “Taking the time to
thank the fans who give us the chance to live dreams every single day is
something that we can never do enough, and I’ll never forget their
inspiring stories. These types of things are really the heart of Lady A
and we’re looking forward to keeping the spirit of 7FOR7 going!”
Additionally, Lady A lent their voices to Nicholas Sparks’ most recent film, The Best Of Me,
for which they also wrote and recorded two songs on the movie’s
soundtrack. They were inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame this
fall, were announced as the recipients of CRS’s “2015 Artist
Humanitarian Award,” Hillary Scott was honored by the Nashville Business Journal
as the “2014 Artist of the Year” for their Inaugural Women in Music
City Awards and the group received countless nominations including
AMA’s, CMA’s, ACM’s, CMT’s, ACCA’s and Teen Choice Awards and are
currently nominated and performing at the upcoming People’s Choice Awards (1/7 on CBS).

Lady A will close out
the dynamic year with their first annual “Cheers For Charity” event in
