Lady Antebellum returns to Musikfest and we couldn’t be more excited! The country trio has earned their fair share of accolades since forming in 2006: seven GRAMMYs, three platinum albums and nine #1 singles. Their sold out live show at the ‘fest in 2016 was so spectacular, we just had to have them back! To get you ready to see Lady Antebellum headline the Sands Steel Stage at PNC Plaza again on Sunday, August 6, we put together their five chart-topping hits we’re most looking forward to seeing live this summer!
5. “We Owned the Night”
An upbeat tempo on “We Owned the Night” fondly recalls a one night stand. The light and fun lyrics fit the faster tempo – all elements that make this a great tune to hear live. I’m sure Lady Antebellum will own the night with this one.
4. “Just a Kiss”
“Just a Kiss” was the first single released from the Own the Night album in 2011. A fan-favorite ballad about new love topped the country charts for two weeks and was the band’s fifth number one hit. Even though the song is a ballad, the verses build into a strong chorus that has a lot of energy, making it a fun track to sing along with.
3. “I Run To You”
Who wouldn’t look forward to hearing the very first number one single of Lady Antebellum’s career? A song about turning to the person you love in the face of all of the negativity of the world, “I Run to You” was the final single released in 2009 from their self-titled album. The song went on to win the CMA for “Single of the Year” in 2009.
“Bartender” is Lady Antebellum’s upbeat and fun breakup song from the album 747. It was the lead single from the record and debuted in May 2014, hitting the top of the charts. If you need an anthem for going out with your friends and forgetting your ex – and let’s be honest, we’ve all been there – this is your song.
1. “Need You Now”
“Need You Now” is the Lady Antebellum song that will hit you right in the feels. It’s all about being at that lonely place in the middle of the night and making a phone call you might regret in the morning. It’s the type of song that you belt out alone in the car (or is that just me?). The song was the first single released from the second studio album of the same name and spent five weeks at the top of the country charts.
