LADY A HONORS SUCCESS OF 10th NO ONE HIT “WHAT IF I NEVER GET OVER YOU” WITH A SPECIAL PERFORMANCE DURING NASHVILLE NO. ONE PARTY
Award-Winning Trio Celebrate Alongside ASCAP, BMI and SESAC Songwriters Sam Ellis, Jon Green, Ryan Hurd and Laura Veltz
NASHVILLE, TN – Feb. 04. 2020 – Lady Antebellum brought together the Nashville community yesterday (2/03) to celebrate the success behind the group’s 10th career chart-topper and GOLD certified hit “What If I Never Get Over You.” Hosted by ASCAP, BMI and SESAC at Nashville’s Analog in the Hutton Hotel, the trio was joined onstage by songwriters Sam Ellis (ASCAP/Universal Music Group), Ryan Hurd (BMI/Universal Music Group), Jon Green (SESAC/Universal Music Group), Laura Veltz (BMI/Big Machine Music) and producer Dann Huff, as they were surrounded by friends and family alike who have rallied behind the trio over the course of their decade-plus career. As the celebration warrants a pivotal moment in the band’s career, Lady A performed a special rendition of “the heartbreaking song” (Rolling Stone) alongside its hit writers. “What If I Never Get Over You” serves as the lead single from Lady A’s No. One selling album OCEAN and their first No. One under BMLG Records as well as Ellis’ and Green’s first chart-topper.
As a Country-radio staple, the trio has amassed record-breaking success ushering in 10 No. One hits with more than 18 million album units and 34 million tracks sold and nearly 5 billion digital streams. The trio earned the biggest first week streams of their career with their critically acclaimed No. One album OCEAN, as “the 13-track masterpiece” (Marie Claire) alone boasts over 230 million streams. Following their recent No. One single “What If I Never Get Over You,” the group has announced its follow-up to Country radio with “What I’m Leaving For” impacting radio Feb. 18. Known for their 9X Platinum hit “Need You Now” which is the highest certified song by a Country group, they have earned ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMY awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and a Tony Award nod. Lady A’s upcoming OCEAN 2020 TOUR will mix a hit-filled set with fan-favorites and new songs when it launches on May 21st in Albuquerque, NM, with very special guest Jake Owen as direct support along with openers Maddie & Tae.
