Lady Antebellum Leaks a New Single

Lady A

Lady Antebellum‘s fourth album is due out this spring, and the first single off the album, “Downtown,” has been leaked as an “exclusive” on Entertainment Weekly’s website! This track has everything a Lady A fan could possibly want: phenomenal vocals, a fun beat, and a seriously sassy, Shania circa 1996 attitude! Everyone can identify with “Downtown’s” sentiments. You know, when a relationship loses that “oomph!” and staying in and not taking your significant other out on the town becomes the norm?

Head to EW.com to check out Lady A’s “Downtown” and let us know what you think!

Dixie Chicks Replace Lady Antebellum at Craven Country Jamboree

Organizers of the Craven Country Jamboree thrilled  country fans this week with the announcement of the Saturday headline acts for their 2013 concert – the Dixie Chicks.

When Lady Antebellum was forced to cancel their appearance due to Hillary Scott’s pregnancy, the organizers scrambled to find someone special for the show. “We knew we had to find something extra special to replace Lady Antebellum when the band canceled their summer dates due to Hilary Scott’s pregnancy,” said Kim Blevins, director of marketing. “We are extremely excited that we can offer a taste of country music royalty to the Craven Country Jamboree. And it won’t be a regular show – not only will our fans see Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, the three original members, this is a greatest hits package. The Craven date will be one of the only opportunities fans of the band will have to see them live. This is an incredibly special moment for Chicks fans and the Craven Country Jamboree.”
