LADY ANTEBELLUM RELEASES LEAD SINGLE “BARTENDER”

LADY ANTEBELLUM RELEASES LEAD SINGLE  “BARTENDER” OFF UPCOMING FIFTH STUDIO ALBUM

Trio To Open Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series With New Single on May 23    

Nashville, TN – May 12, 2014 – Seven-time GRAMMY award winning trio Lady
Antebellum dropped the lead single “Bartender” off their upcoming fifth
studio album today.  The swampy, sultry breakup anthem is available at
Country Radio now and will be available for purchase at digital
retailers on May 20.  
Written
by Lady A’s Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and co-writer
Rodney Clawson, the trio enlisted Nathan Chapman to co-produce the new
single featuring Scott’s lead vocal and the trio’s signature harmonies.  
“For
this new stuff, we wanted keep the core of Lady A, while also
experimenting with new sounds and ideas,” said Kelley. “Nathan was
really instrumental in pushing us to try different harmonies and new
songs that were a little out of the box for us. There’s a lot of energy
that comes with those changes and ‘Bartender’ is just of taste of what
we’ve been working on.”   
Rather
than the late night drunk-dial approach of the band’s international
smash hit “Need You Now,” these lyrics are poised to become a female
anthem centered around washing an ex’s memory away with whiskey on a
wild girls’ night out.  
“I
love this song because there’s something empowering about not going for
the rebound or just moping around over a guy,” said Scott. “There are
those times in your life when you need to feel sorry for yourself and be
sad, but this song is all about hitting the dance floor with your
girlfriends and just forgetting him.”   
“We’ve
been crazy busy writing, and when we’re this deep into it, we get so
excited about new music that we can’t wait to get it out,” added Dave
Haywood. “We’ve been outdoors playing amphitheaters and are loving the
energy that the fans bring to those outdoor shows. So, when we sat down
to write with Rodney for the first time, we really wanted some new stuff
to keep fans on their feet.” 

The trio is set to perform the new single when they kick off Good Morning America’s
summer concert series live from Central Park on May 23. From New York
City, the trio will continue on their headlining 2014 TAKE ME DOWNTOWN
TOUR.
