Tuesday Tunes: Lady Antebellum

I'm a mega huge fan of Lady Antebellum. Most of my friends/family know this story, but I saw them open for Martina McBride back in 2007. They didn't have an album out yet, they didn't even have a single out yet. But at that concert I turned to my friend and said "they are going to be huge". We went home and checked out the band's MySpace (yes, MySpace) page and they had a few pictures and one song uploaded. A few months later, they released a single, and then an album, and soon became mega stars.

They are incredible musicians and songwriters. I have adored every album they've put out and cheer them on at award shows, because they have worked very hard and deserve every ounce of success.

Their latest album, Golden, did not disappoint. Here are my four favorite tunes

1. All For Love
In my opinion, this is the best song on the album. It's got the drama and emotion of their number one hit "Need You Now". There is passion, and beautiful harmonies.

2. It Ain't Pretty
This is a Hilary- centric song, and it perfectly describes what us gals go through after a breakup. The bridge is chilling.

3. Better Off (Now That You're Gone)
I was excited about this song ever since the track listing for the album got leaked a few months ago. It's uptempo with a bit of a rock edge, and I can't wait to see what they do with it at a live show.

4. Downtown

I couldn't exclude the band's first single from my list. It's another uptempo tune that is rocking the country charts right now.

Are you a Lady Antebellum fan? What's your favorite song off their new album? If you're not a fan, what's your favorite song I posted here?
