Here is a cool video. This is the new single coming out from the trio, but in this video we get a really cool introduction and background of this song and from one of the co-writers. They actually refer to him as the fourth member of the band. So check it out and watch the intro because it’s kind of cool.
Long Stretch Of Love – Lady Antebellum
Again, you just don’t get a sound like Lady A anywhere else in country music. They have a unique sound and it’s partly because they have both the male and female parts.
Like they say in the intro, this song is intense. It has a really intense sound and you feel like you’re on this dark ride, but in the end it somehow feels right. And that seems to be the point of the song. You have two people that are together and they know they should be together, but there are signs that maybe they shouldn’t. All the good times and the bad time are intense and if they’re not able to handle it they may go crazy. But it sounds like they’re in it for the long haul.
It’s hard to believe that Lady A is going into what I think is their seventh or eighth year on the charts. They’ve been around a while now and what I like is that they keep looking for new sounds. They’re trying to make the same record over and over again. It may not always work out, but for the most part is does.
