I’m sure I’m not the only Lady Antebellum fan who would like to wake up Christmas morning and find the trios new CD “Need You Now,” in my Christmas stocking. But it isn’t going to happen. The CD cover has been released, and we all know the number one title track, but we’re going to have to wait until Jan. 26, 2010 to hear the rest of the CD.
I really feel fortunate that I’ve gotten to see this group in concert twice already. Once when they opened for Jason Aldean in :Bristol, Tenn., an d once when they headlined at a local fair. They’re great entertainers, and you guys need to take a look at what they have up on their schedule now.
They will be starting out a tour on Dec. 4, with a show in Vinton, La., at the Delta Downs Racetrack Casino. Then the dates start up in February, with Feb. 5 at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo in San Antonio, Texas. On Feb. 11, they will scoot over to Omaha, Neb., for a show with Tim McGraw, at Quest Center. they’ll stay with Tim for a show in Roanoke, Va., on Feb. 19, at Roanoke Civic Center, and then on Feb. 20 at Big Sandy Superstore Arena in Huntingdon, W.V.
Reading, Pa. will have the group on Feb. 21. This show is also with Tim McGraw and will be at the Soverign Center Arena. Feb. 25 takes them out to Columbia, Mo., and that will be with Tim, too. You can check out their show dates, most of them are with Tim McGraw, on their web site, by clicking here.
Charles, Hillary and Dave have come a very long way since getting together in 2006. They write great music, do a fantastic show, and are really fun to watch. I remember when I saw them this past summer – it seemed like the 90-minute show was over before it ever got started. When people are enjoying themselves so much that the time just flies by, you know Lady Antebellum is doing something right.
In the “News” section of Lady Antebellum’s website, it says that “Need You Now is the No. 1 Ringtone and Ringback at Verizon. I can believe that – I think it’s probably the best song on country radio right now.
Here’s the latest episode of Lady Antebellum – Webisode Wednesday. It’s their 84th episode. So here’s your 4 minutes with Lady Antebellum for today. I just think these guys are great. And I love Hillary’s little dog. 🙂
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday. I’m off work today, too. Haven’t decided yet if I’m going to go to a Christmas Tree exhibit in Knoxville, or just hang around close to home and go see “The Blind Side” in Johnson City. I have a feeling the movie will win out over the drive to Knoxville.
Whatever you do with your day after Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy it! I’m going to get some mail answered. I’ll talk to you all real soon!
