LADY ANTEBELLUM ROLLS OUT "AMERICAN HONEY" FROM UPCOMING SOPHOMORE ALBUM NEED YOU NOW

LADY A SETS NEW RECORD FOR COUNTRY MUSIC'S LONGEST NO. ONE IN 2009 AS "NEED YOU NOW" PEAKS AT FIVE CONSECUTIVE WEEKS

NASHVILLE, TN - Dec. 14, 2009 - After spending a record five consecutive weeks at No. one on the Billboard Top Country Songs chart with their smash hit "Need You Now," GRAMMY nominated trio Lady Antebellum will release the second single American Honey from their forthcoming sophomore album NEED YOU NOW (out Jan. 26) to radio today.

"I think everyone, man or woman, it doesn’t matter, you get to a place in your life when you really miss the simplicity of growing up. I’m only 23 years old, but as things in our lives get crazier, there’s moments in time where I’m like, gosh, it would be great to just go back to when I was playing hide and go seek with my neighbors or laying on the screened-in porch in my aunt’s house - going back to the smells and the sights and all those things," shares Hillary Scott. "That's what I loved about this song...the nostalgic thing. It just has this sweetness to it, and it warms your heart."
