We Owned The Night – Lady Antebellum
The Story Behind the Song
It’s another love affair story for Lady Antebellum. We Owned The Night is another dreamy love song about having a moment with a lover. The band is finding this kind of song to be their niche and I think it’s great.
The trio is young. They’re full of life and energy. The bring this unique emotion to country music. They bring in the dreamy nature of young love and even young lust. To dream of owning just one night with someone is refreshing. The idea of not thinking about tomorrow and just getting lost with someone and being with only them for a night is emotional and passionate.
Lady Antebellum is a passionate band. They’re a sensual band. They have a unique feature for country fans and the fans are eating it up.
The first single from the album has already sold well over a million copies and has gone number one. [easyazon-link asin=”B005IF5H6Y”]We Owned The Night[/easyazon-link] should be nearing the top twenty when the album is release. The track is going to be another huge success for Lady A.
Lady Antebellum’s Ongoing Success
Back in the summer of 2008 I had the chance to see a new trio perform live in Eau Claire. The band had 1.5 hits at the time and nobody really knew who they were. They were playing the 3pm or maybe 5pm show at the country festival and the audience really wasn’t in any rush to see them.
The the band – Lady Antebellum – started playing their songs and people took notice. The chairs filled up and people starting rocking back and forth to the sounds coming from the stage. It was really interesting to see the crowd take to a new act like this. The people recognized the band’s first hit and even their rising second single.
What really surprised me was how people got into the other songs the band performed. Looking back it would be easy to say I knew the band was heading for the big time, but it’s hard to really know. I guess I missed the signs.
Today the band is as big as can be. They have huge country hits and their songs have crossed over to be major pop hits as well. Their albums are selling more than just about every other act in any genre. Their upcoming third release is one of the most anticipated albums of 2011. Country fans are already counting down the days until the new music drops.
It’s only been four years or so since Lady A first hit the scene. They’re one of the biggest acts in country music. They’re selling the most records, a bunch of tickets, and winning all the major awards.
With the new song – [easyazon-link asin=”B005IF5H6Y”]We Owned The Night[/easyazon-link] – the band should continue adding to their collection of popular songs. It’ll be interesting to see how they transform over time. Right now they have a nice niche singing about young love and the issues that go along with it. As with any of the good songwriters the trio will likely continue writing about what they know. The good thing about country music is the fans age with the artists and as the topics change, fans stay interested.
The next curiosity will be if the band members will be able to withstand the calls for solo records. Things will be interesting, but for now let’s enjoy the great music Lady A is releasing.
