Trio Nominated For Five 2010 Country Music Association Awards

NASHVILLE, TN - Sep. 28, 2010 - Following on the heels of three consecutive No. one hits from their DOUBLE PLATINUM album NEED YOU NOW, reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum is set to release the epic ballad "Hello World."  The hopeful song will impact country radio on Oct.4 and places Charles Kelley's powerful vocals front and center.

"When I first heard this song, it floored me," says Charles Kelley. "It's about opening your eyes to the beauty of the world and wanting to get back to the simplicity of life... away from the rat race."

"I've seen it reduce grown men to tears," adds Hillary Scott. "Charles delivers such an amazing vocal performance on this one... it still gives me chills every time we perform it live."

Critics agree as Billboard says, "Kelley shines on the thoughtful and string-laden 'Hello World,'" while Entertainment Weekly notes that "Charles Kelley's and Hillary Scott's voices intertwine with a piercing white-soul lilt that feels uniquely theirs."
