OFFSTAGE: Lady Antebellum to Embrace Risk

Published on March 29, 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.)

You can’t really put “embrace risk” on your schedule. But come May 7, when Lady
Antebellum
‘s next album comes out, I feel like that’s what will be happening. The band’s Hillary Scott said that’s how
they approached Golden. “We embraced risk. When you are pushing yourself to not go back to the same well, you’re gonna
come up with something different, or you’ll find songs that are different,” she said in a press release. I’m more of an “if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it”
kind of girl, but I think I understand what Scott means about pushing themselves. And Charles Kelley assuaged my fears that
the album might be too far out. “Every band I love that’s been here for a long time has reinvented itself in some way. There’s
a balance to it,” he said. “I get a little annoyed when people reinvent themselves too much because there’s a reason people
fell in love with you in the first place, but I think it’s important not to regurgitate the same stuff over and over again.”
So, to recap, the album will be a lot of what we fell in love with but not a regurgitation of the same kinds of songs. Sounds
golden to me.
