Lady Antebellum have just released their brand new single, “Downtown,” the first single from their upcoming album due out later this year. The song is fresh, upbeat, sassy and fun, and as Hillary Scott, from the group says a bit “quirky.” She also is proud of the girl in the song as she stands up for herself. “I liked the girl in the song is not afraid to just be like, ‘What are you doing? Why aren’t you doing this?’” says Hillary. “Like being so forward and strong, just empowered, I think. I loved it. I love the voice that she has in the song.” She also went on to say: “There’s some sass to this track that makes it really fun to sing…it’s definitely a roll down the windows and bob your head kind of thing.” “We thought it was a fun way to launch the next record and a fitting preview of what’s to come!”
Lady A will debut the track next week on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (January 28th) and fans can catch a second performance the following week on CBS’s The Talk (February 6th). The group also announced this week that they will collaborate with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks for an all new CMT CROSSROADS episode set to tape next week in Los Angeles and air later this year.
