NEW MUSIC: Lady A’s Vulnerable “What If I Never Get Over You”

Lady Antebellum is back on the radio airwaves and at digital partners today with “What If I Never Get Over You”
serving as the first single under BMLG Records. Representing a new
chapter as well as a return to the beginning for Charles Kelley, Hillary
Scott and Dave Haywood, the plush mid-tempo ballad features Scott and
Kelley trading anxiety and shared despair over an ending relationship.
To celebrate, at 6:30P CT tonight Lady A will host a Facebook Live fan
event where they will perform the new single for a group of
hand-selected fans and take questions, before the continuation of their
first-ever Sin City OUR KIND OF VEGAS residency, at the Palms Casino Resort’s Pearl Concert Theater.

“I feel like ‘What If I Never Get Over You’ is a turn back to our
beginning, both in the sound and the core of who we are,” said Haywood.
“We love being able to put out those big questions about lost love, like
‘What if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?’ or ‘What if I never
move on from this relationship?”

Produced by Dann Huff, “What If I Never Get Over You” is one of those
instant classics—a song that feels like it’s been around for years
because of its relatable lyrics and warm, comforting energy. The duet
underscores the universal truths at the center of its lyrics while
teardrop guitars and crashing drums illustrate how the emotions that
rush through ex-lovers’ minds can run in similar circles even when the
two people involved are miles apart.

“We hit this place of wanting to go back to where we came from,”
explained Scott. “This single is a great example of that. We’ve got 13
years of life together, of work together, of ups and downs in our
personal lives. All of that kind of encompasses one same feeling: ‘We’re
here, we’re loving it, and we’re turning over a new leaf — one that
feels really familiar and authentic to ourselves as a band.'”

“It’s been several years since we’ve had a chance to release a duet like
this as a single,” added Kelley. “When we played it for our team their
excitement reassured us this song was the one to lead with out of the
gate. It’s been a bit of our magic from day one. Our very first song in
2006, ‘All We’d Ever Need,’ was just written for Hillary, but she said,
‘Charles, you should sing a verse too’ and that’s how we started the
co-lead singer thing.”

The ailing lyrics behind “What If I Never Get Over You” are heightened
through its official music video, which premieres today at 12:00P CT via
YouTube. Director Sarah McColgan hones in on
the sentiment of a love-lost relationship and its haunting thoughts that
are left behind. Fans can watch the music video here:

Over the course of their decade-long career, Lady Antebellum has become
one of the 21st century’s premier vocal groups, blending deeply felt
emotions with classic country sounds. As a Country-radio staple, the
trio has amassed record-breaking success with nine No. One hits while
ushering in more than 18 million album units and 34 million tracks sold,
with over 4 billion digital streams. Known for their 9X PLATINUM hit
“Need You Now” which is the highest certified song by a Country group,
they have earned ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMY awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and a Tony Award
nod. The trio continues their first-ever Las Vegas residency, OUR KIND
OF VEGAS, with upcoming shows in May and August. For more information on
