OFFSTAGE: Lady Antebellum Take a Left Turn

Published on January 23, 2013 by CMT News

Lady Antebellum

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Old married couples, rejoice. You now have your very own country song — Lady
Antebellum
‘s brand new single “Downtown.” The hook is just this simple: “I don’t know why you don’t take me downtown anymore.”
Hillary Scott sings about how she has platforms and a dress ready to go, but he just won’t take her out on the town. It’s
infectious because of the melody and the exact thought that has been running through nearly every woman’s mind since the first
marriage ever. Charles Kelley told EW.com
he likes the song because “more than anything, I just think we, as a band, were just ready to show a different side of us
musically” and that they “just wanted to stretch our sound a little bit.” And bandmate Dave Haywood concurs. “We got to a
point in our career where it was like, we can either continue and just keep doing the same thing we’ve been doing, or we can
take a left turn,” he said. “This song was a 180 for us, and we fell in love with it.” From what I’ve heard of the song so
far, I like that left turn. But I hope for Haywood’s wife’s sake, that’s the turn you make to get downtown.
