NASHVILLE, TN – September 15, 2009 – The music video for Lady Antebellum’s brand new single “Need You Now” world premieres on YouTube today, becoming the first country music video to debut in the popular site’s Featured Video section. The video was directed by David McClister and shot in Toronto in late Aug.
“We really wanted this video to be a little more dramatic and stylized than anything we’ve done before,” explains lead vocalist Hillary Scott. “It was an exhausting shoot…physically and emotionally…because we worked through the night and just poured every ounce of ourselves into our characters. It’s a passionate song, and we wanted the video to be just as passionate.” To watch “Need You Now,” visit www.youtube.com/ladyantebellum.
“Need You Now” is the fastest rising single of Lady Antebellum’s career to date, cracking Billboard’s Top 25 in only four weeks. The reigning Country Music Association’s “New Artist of the Year” also celebrated two 2009 CMA nominations for “Group of the Year” and “Single of the Year” for their recent No. one hit “I Run To You” when they were announced last week. Lady A is currently touring Canada with superstar Keith Urban.
