I can hear the complaints already.
They’re Lady Antebellum. We know they have perfect lives. Why would I want to listen to them sing about having perfect days?
Well, I think there is a little too much complaining going on in the world. We need to focus on the fun things in life. If that means a great song about the perfect day then I’m all for it.
Perfect Day – Lady Antebellum
Lady Antebellum has been on a huge run the last four or five years. They came out of nowhere and became arguably the biggest act in country music. I’m not sure if there is an act that has sold more records or had more hits over the last couple years than these guys.
The hits have been plenty, but something Lady A has also added to the mix has been a few videos that weren’t official singles. The previous videos – think Stars Tonight – kind of showcase the roller coaster lives these three talented individuals have been leading since their rise to stardom.
The same approach was taken with Perfect Day. The footage is from the shows and just other behind the scenes moments captured as the band is out making history as one of the most successful acts in country music history.
The song is good. It’s probably not something that would do extremely well on radio, but it’s a good break from the rest of the country scene for three minutes. The song is entirely positive. I like that it’s about all the good things that can happen in life. If you let things get out of control in life you’ll find yourself in a cycle of depression and complaining. It’s not healthy to live that way.
That’s why I think it really works to listen to a song like Perfect Day.
Great job, Lady A.
