NASHVILLE, TN – May 6, 2013 – On the heels of their multi-week chart-topping lead single “Downtown,” GRAMMY winning trio Lady Antebellum released “Goodbye Town” today as the second single off their fourth studio album GOLDEN – out tomorrow, May 7. The result of a session between Haywood, Kelley, Scott and Josh Kear, “Goodbye Town” was written backstage during the trio’s OWN THE NIGHT 2012 WORLD TOUR.
“Josh came out to see us on the road because that’s where we did so much of the writing for this album,” said Kelley. “There’s just something about this song that I think people can relate to. It’s that time after a breakup when everything about a place reminds you of that person, so all you want to do is just get the hell out of there. We really wanted the production to reflect that almost haunting feeling.”
Lady A kicks off GOLDEN release week tomorrow with performances slated for Good Morning America, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and two nights on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as an exclusive and intimate release show at New York City’s newest hot spot The McKittrick Hotel for the Lady Antebellum GOLDEN Release Show presented by Citi. Since its 2006 inception, Lady A has risen quickly to become Country Music’s most influential current group. The group has won the “Vocal Group of the Year” honor from both the CMA and from the ACM’s three times in a row, earned seven GRAMMY awards and sold 11 million albums worldwide. Nine of the band’s singles are certified Gold, with four surpassing the Platinum mark.
