Before you check out the list, have you entered our contest for a chance to meet Lady Antebellum in Las Vegas yet? Well, you should.
5. Our Kind Of Love
This fun and quirky video from [mp3com-artist]Lady Antebellum[/mp3com-artist] was a number 1 hit on the US Country charts for the band. It tells the story of a young love that stays fresh, happy and healthy. With a mix of colorful junkyard settings and young romance, this video will definitely put a smile on your face.
“Just like driving on an open highway / Never knowing what we’re gonna find / Just like two kids, baby, always trying to live it up / Whoa, yeah, that’s our kind of love”
4. American Honey
Hillary Scott takes the lead on this Lady A hit and though the reviews on the song were both positive and negative, this trio showed the world they’re here to stay. This was another number 1 hit on the US Country Charts and only paved the way for brighter songs.
It was a song they all knew they wanted the moment they heard it. Dave Haywood told The Boot “I think it’s a message that we want to have out there that as crazy as the times get for our job and anybody’s job, you have to remember when life was a little simpler and a little sweeter.”
“There’s a wild wild whisper blown in the wind / Callin out my name like a long lost friend / Oh I miss those days as the years go by / Oh nothings sweeter than summertime / And American honey”
3. I Run To You
Giving [mp3com-artist]Lady Antebellum [/mp3com-artist] their first number 1 single, “I Run To You” was the last single from their debut album and gave them their first GRAMMY Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group. This video deals with the ultimate ‘pay it forward’ motive, starting with a mother giving money to a struggling musician who in turn loans the money to a man who forgot his wallet, who then turns around helps a woman who had dropped papers and so on.
This is also one of the few videos (including Need You Now) with Hillary Scott as a blonde!
“This world keeps spinning faster / Into a new disaster so I run to you / I run to you baby / And when it all starts coming undone / Baby you’re the only one I run to / I run to you”
2. Just A Kiss
The lead single from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Antebellum[/lastfm]’s third album “Own The Night” took the charts by storm. Just a video of the audio has almost 2 million views on YouTube. This heartwarming video shows the love between two people, one of which leaves the other after some time spent together in Europe. It begins with a guy holding up a sign that says “Don’t leave me” in French on an iPad left for the girl.
“We love writing songs from personal experience, and this is definitely one of those songs,” Hillary tells The Boot. “There is so much excitement at the beginning of a new relationship … all the butterflies and that optimistic feeling that this person could be ‘the one.’ This song is about one of those times when your brain kicks in and tells your heart ‘good things are worth waiting for.‘ ” And the debut of this new single was definitely worth waiting for.
“Lyin’ here with you so close to me / It’s hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe / Caught up in this moment / Caught up in your smile / I’ve never opened up to anyone / So hard to hold back when I’m holding you in my arms / We don’t need to rush this / Let’s just take this slow”
1. Need You Now
It’s no surprise this song tops any type of [mp3com-artist]Lady Antebellum[/mp3com-artist] list. Being their most successful hit and one that launched them into the lines of pop music as well, “Need You Now” gave the band four GRAMMY awards in 2011 and a slew of other country music awards. The video follows the storyline of two people who feel the weight of loneliness in the middle of the night. It’s a song about longing and need which people across the world related to.
“We were a little worried though, about that one line: ‘It’s a quarter after one, and I’m a little drunk’,” says Charles Kelley. “We were wondering if it was OK to say that!“ Though in the video, you see Charles drinking coffee, not Whiskey. The video director didn’t want it to be a literal adaptation of the song.
