Lady Antebellum Has Miranda Lambert to Thank For New Single


Lady Antebellum is back at Country radio with “Downtown,” the lead single from their highly anticipated forthcoming studio album. In a recent interview, Lady A’s Hillary Scott revealed that the song, which hit radio earlier this week, was actually almost recorded by another Country superstar.

“It was one of those songs that we heard and fell in love with and then found out that someone else had that song on hold,” Scott told Detroit’s WYCD. “That someone was actually a girl by the name of Miranda Lambert, who I consider a good friend.”

Scott explained that Lambert told them she wasn’t ready to record the song just yet, and happily passed it along to her friends.

“She very very selflessly said ‘let Lady A have it,’ so we owe her a huge thank you,” Scott said.

Lambert’s actions attest what they always say about the Country music genre – that it’s like one big family.

“She really went above and beyond, and that’s what you find in our amazing genre of country music.  That the artists really do love each other and support one another.”
