Lady Antebellum Go Downtown To No. 1
Part of the song's immediate and widespread appeal had to do with the funky arrangement and sassy vocals of band member Hillary Scott — both of which are departures from the group's previous hits such as "Need You Now," "American Honey," and "We Owned the Night."
Hillary may be the voice out front on "Downtown," but as she and bandmate Charles Kelley explained during an interview backstage at Country Thunder Arizona with KMLE this past weekend, a good chunk of credit also belongs to the third member of the Lady A triumvirate, Dave Haywood.
He may not be out front as much during their live shows as lead vocalists Hillary and Charles, but as Charles explained, Dave is "definitely the music" behind the group. Speaking of their upcoming album Golden, Charles said that "in the studio, he and our producer Paul Worley are spearheading most of the project. And we [he and Hillary] get to breeze in and out throughout the process. He definitely is the most talented out of us, I'd have to say." more on this story
