Since teaming up in 2006, Lady Antebellum has sold over 18 million units and had nine No. 1 singles on the country charts. They have won seven Grammy awards (including both Record and Song of the Year for “Need You Now” in 2010), and they were the first artists in the history of the CMA Awards to win Single of the Year in back-to-back years. All of this making music country music that Kelley describes as “a little bit rock and roll, a little bit of pop, a little bit of R&B thrown in, just because that’s what we love—Dave and I grew up in Augusta, Georgia, the home of James Brown, and Hillary grew up in Nashville, and we just kind of mix it all together.”

When it came time to incorporate that sound for Heart Break, another key element was producer busbee, whose previous work with Lady A includes the No. 1 hit “Our Kind of Love,” and who has recently collaborated with the likes of Maren Morris and Keith Urban. “busbee pushed us into a really neat place and he’s such an integral part of this new chapter for us,” says Haywood.  “He challenged us, pushed us, he never settled for just an ‘ok’ vocal performance in the studio….or a mediocre lyric. Having known him for nearly eight years really made us all comfortable enough with each other to be open and say exactly what we felt.” The group’s desire to shake things up made evident by the album’s first single, the swaggering “You Look Good,” which came complete with a funky horn arrangement. “I’d been begging for horns on a song for years!” says Scott. “One of my favorite songs growing up was ‘Sir Duke’ by Stevie Wonder, and that feel transports you to another place. It was the perfect song to embody the excitement and fun that we had making this record.”

“We love writing the serious songs—the heartbreak songs, the love songs—but the recording process was so different and so fun and we felt like we wanted to lead with that,” says Kelley. “We wanted it to be a little bit of a question mark, where you weren’t sure if it was us—we wanted to take a little bit of a left turn where you don’t always know what to expect.”

The trio had a hand in writing 11 of the 13 tracks on Heart Break, more than they’d ever written on a previous album, resulting in their most intimate and heartfelt work to date. “It’s really our story,” says Kelley. “Songs about our spouses and kids—they have a universal feel to them, but there’s a lot of our personal stories here.” What’s evident is that coming back from their hiatus, the members of Lady Antebellum are fired up and ready to go, with a new sense of both their history and their possibilities. “I think we came back from the break with an appreciation for what we’ve built,” says Scott. “We’ve always been very thankful for our journey, but there’s a heightened sense of gratitude for one another and for our career that we’ve been so blessed to have.”

Lady Antebellum has also been nominated for the 2019 Country Music Group of the Year at the 54th annual Academy of Country Music Awards happening on April 7.
