Lady Antebellum showcases the raw power behind their No. One selling album OCEAN, as they release LIVE: IN THE ROUND today. Five standout tracks from their critically acclaimed studio album were recreated in one-take at Nashville’s Skyways Studios, as Lady A echoes new life into “the most powerful and passionate work that the trio has created,” (PEOPLE). Garnering more than 821 million video streams to date, Lady A captures the emotionally resonant project with standalone performances of each song – watch here. Offering an unconventional mix of OCEAN’s No. One hit and ACM “Single of the Year” nominated single “What If I Never Get Over You” along with the immediate follow-up climbing at Country radio, “What I’m Leaving For,” LIVE: IN THE ROUND is now available at all digital retailers here.
“We really enjoyed getting to strip down some of our favorite songs from OCEAN and put focus on the lyrics that drew us in from the beginning,” Charles Kelley said. “It was refreshing to get back in the studio with just the three of us and our road band. We were able to relive those initial feelings and reflect on how these songs have already made such a huge impact on our career.”
LIVE: IN THE ROUND shares an intimate take on fan-favorites such as the heartland-rock track “Boots” and “Be Patient With My Love,” a beautiful ode to commitment that balances raw feelings with squealing guitars. Additionally, Lady A mixes vulnerability and sonic textures on the “emotionally charged title track” (Rolling Stone) while breathing life into their “utterly beautiful” (Music Row) new single “What I’m Leaving For.” As the heartfelt track serves as the immediate follow-up to their recent GOLD certified chart topper “What If I Never Get Over You,” critics claim Lady A “highlights their signature trade-off technique” (US Weekly) and it’s “among the finest lyrics they’ve shared with Country radio,” (Taste of Country).
