LADY ANTEBELLUM'S SOPHOMORE ALBUM NEED YOU NOW CERTIFIED DOUBLE PLATINUM AS TITLE SINGLE GOES TRIPLE PLATINUM

Tune In April 28 for the Trio's Performance on American Idol Lady A Sells Out First Headlining Show in NYC at The Nokia Theatre

NASHVILLE, TN - Apr. 26, 2010 - ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum's sophomore album NEED YOU NOW was certified DOUBLE PLATINUM last week, while the title track was simultaneously certified TRIPLE PLATINUM. The album is now spending its 12th week at No. one on the Billboard Country albums chart.

"We've dreamed about these types of milestones, but when it starts to become a reality, it takes a while for it to really settle in," says Dave Haywood. "We are just trying to take it all in and enjoy the moment and hopefully make our incredible fans really proud."

Before collecting five ACM awards as both artists and songwriters, the group taped a performance of the title track on Fox's American Idol that will air on April 28, 2010.

The trio hit another milestone last week selling out their first headlining show in New York City planned for May 10 at the Nokia Theatre.
