Downtown by Lady Antebellum
It’s interesting to listen to the evolution of Lady Antebellum. They first came out about five years ago and they were a little rough around the edges. They were just kids having fun with life and it came across in their music.
There is still a little bit of that in their music and the evidence in this new song. Here is the official lyric video. Give it a listen and see what you think.
Downtown – Lady Antebellum
Back in 2008 the band was just looking for a good time. That hasn’t changed in this new single, but the context is just a bit different. This time it sounds like things have settled down and the girl in the relationship just wants to be taken out on a date like in the old days.
It’s amazing how much can change in just five years. Think back to what you were doing five years ago. I’m sure things have changed at least a little bit.
When you’re right around the age of 30 things do start to change. The wild and crazy days give way to living life at home with the family and a few close friends. Yet every once in a while there is that itch to get out and enjoy the downtown life for just one night.
Lady Antebellum is back having fun with their music. I think they got a little serious on the last record so it’s good to see them come back strong with a single like this.
The fans should love it.
