- Members of the group [lastfm link_type=""]Lady Antebellum[/lastfm] readily admit that “Need You Now” has changed their lives, and they’re ready to change the subject. The trio will release their follow-up to that Grammy-winning album on Sept. 13.

“Own the Night” will undoubtedly turn the page on a chapter in the story of the trio comprised of [lastfm link_type=""]Hillary Scott[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=""]Dave Haywood[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=""]Charles Kelley[/lastfm]. They are one of the most successful crossover acts in the history of music. And now, it’s time to move on. Charles had this to say: “We don’t want anyone to think we’re a one-trick pony. ” Didn’t [lastfm link_type=""]Heidi Newfield[/lastfm] sing with them? Oh, I digress. Anyway, he went on to say: “That’s our goal, to say, `Hey, guys, we’ve got more coming.’” “Need You Now” was the top-selling country album of 2010 with 3 million copies sold, and the title track was the top-selling digital download. The song netted most of the major country awards, and Lady A won a leading five Grammys, including song of the year. ”I think we’d be lying if we didn’t say it puts that little added pressure on us for this record,” Kelley said. “I think for us we’re just ready to have new music out there and have the conversation shift toward something different. My biggest fear is having the conversation keep being about a song that’s two or three years old. I feel as artists and musicians we’re ready to move on to the next chapter.”
