After selling out every city on the group’s first-ever headlining tour, multi-platinum group Lady Antebellum announced today that they will launch the first leg of their OWN THE NIGHT 2011 TOUR on Nov. 11 in Knoxville, Tenn. Both the tour name and trio’s upcoming album OWN THE NIGHT were inspired by the album’s second single, the anthemic “We Owned The Night.” The track is now available for airplay at country radio stations and will be available tonight at 11:00P CT on iTunes. The album will be in stores on Sept. 13.
“We named our new album ‘Own The Night’ after one of our favorite songs ‘We Owned The Night’ off the new album, and felt it was a great description of how we wanted our fans to spend each night of tour with us,” explains Lady A’s Dave Haywood. ”When people come out to our live show or hear the song on the radio it’s a call to action. Be confident, live in the moment and enjoy the experiences you’re going through—own them.”
