Seven-time Grammy Award–winning country sensation Lady Antebellum dropped by the Cityline studios to perform songs from their third studio album, Golden. The special airs twice on Tuesday, May 28: at 9 a.m. for the regular Cityline audience and then again for an exclusive prime-time presentation at 9 p.m.
In this rocking country special, Cityline goes honky-tonk chic with beautiful decor ideas from lifestyle expert Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault, the latest in denim fashion by Cityline stylist Sandra Pittana and some country-style cooking with chef Randy Feltis. And of course Lady Antebellum throws it down with a live performance and chat. Here’s how Tracy kicked it off with Lady Antebellum.
Tracy: Live in studio with us right now, it’s Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, Lady Antebellum. First album, debuted number one on country chart, second album debuted number one on country chart, third album debuted number one too! You must be getting so sick of number ones! Do you feel the pressure when you come up with an album that it has to debut at number one?
Charles: After having success, you want to keep it going, so we definitely put pressure on ourselves. But I think you just have to concentrate on the music, and for this record we made a conscious effort to mix it up a little bit, try some new things. A song like “Downtown,” doesn’t sound like anything we’ve done before. I think we’re just constantly trying to reinvent but still stay in our lane, where our fans feel like they’ve come to know us.
Tracy: We have an entire audience that are huge fans of Lady Antebellum. But here is what I want to know: I want to know who you are huge fans of. So, if I were to take a peek at your iPod right now, what would I find on it? Dave, what’s in your iPod?
Dave: New Justin Timberlake record … I mean Keith Urban was a big influence for us, and I also love Keith’s music too, so I listen to a lot of him.
Tracy: Okay, Hillary, how about you?
Hillary: Adele and Beyoncé.
Tracy: Okay, Charles, how about you, what’s on your iPod?
Charles: A little bit of everything. I’m loving the new Casey Musgrave album. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard about her, she’s awesome, new country artist, and you know I watched the Eagles documentary that just came out, so now I’m falling back in love with all these Eagles songs that I used to listen to. And so I’m just downloading all these records that I haven’t listened to in probably 10 or 15 years, so it’s been kind of cool to rediscover them.
