Lady Antebellum to Release 747 on September 30

lady-antebellum-747-album
Lady Antebellum will release their fifth studio album, 747, on September 30. The album’s lead single, “Bartender,” is soaring up the country chart as one of Lady Antebellum’s fastest rising singles to date. Deciding on a title for the project was a simple group decision.

“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” Hillary Scott said. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now. We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters, taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s an urgency and an energy to it that we’ve never released before.” Continue Reading

Lady Antebellum enlisted a couple of famous friends for a drink-off in their new music video for their latest single, “Bartender.” The trio premiered the video, starring Kate Upton and Arrested Development’s Tony Hale, Thursday morning on NBC’s Today. Directed by Shane Drake, the video stars Kate and her friends on a girls’ night out, which ends with bartender Tony slinging his best shots in an effort to win an epic drinking battle.

“I think we definitely captured the spirit of the song, but we also threw in some unexpected twists that the fans will love,” Charles Kelley said. “Kate and Tony took what could have been just another music video to a really cool place. I mean, pretty much every guy in America is in love with Kate Upton. And if I’m being totally honest, Dave and I now both have a little man-crush on Tony, too. He’s hilarious! Hands-down my favorite video we’ve ever done.”

Tim McGraw’s ‘Superstar Summer Night’ Premieres on Great American Country

tim-mcgraw-superstar-summer
Tim McGraw‘s star-studded concert, Superstar Summer Night, premieres on Great American Country this summer, June 21 at 8/7c. The two-hour concert event features McGraw performing songs from his latest album Two Lanes of Freedom, and some of today’s chart-topping artists.

This once in a lifetime television event is the perfect opportunity for fans to see McGraw on stage with some of today’s biggest music stars, including: Jason Aldean (“1994″), Dierks Bentley (“Summer on Fire”), Luke Bryan (“Crash My Party”), Brantley Gilbert (“Country Must Be Country Wide”), Faith Hill (“Piece of My Heart”), Keith Urban (“Long Hot Summer”), Florida Georgia Line with Nelly (“Cruise (Remix)”), Lady Antebellum (“Goodbye Town”) and The Band Perry (“DONE.”). The special will also feature can’t-miss duets and collaborations with John Fogerty, Taylor Swift, Ne-Yo and Pitbull.

“There’s no better time for live music than in the heat of the summer,” said McGraw in an interview with CBS. “Country music is hotter than it’s ever been, and with some help from a few friends in other formats, too, we’re going to get summer started off right. I’ve been lucky enough to have all these artists tour with me, and it’ll be fun to get everyone back together to help raise money and bring some attention to Lifting Lives. Not enough people know what good work the organization does, and when I was asked to help put this show together, it was a no-brainer.”
