Spun: Lady Antebellum

By Jorie Les

They’re no Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, but Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott — the two lead vocalists of Lady Antebellum — combine to produce an entire album of love songs that are just as believable as theirs.

With their third studio album, Own the Night, the group has come out with yet another enjoyable listening experience. There are no “filler” songs on their latest disc. Each track has something unique to offer, and each is built on the important foundation of quality song-writing. The way the voices Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott complement each other to bring the songs to life is the key to Lady Antebellum’s success.

The album progresses through a variety of falling-in-love songs, break-up songs, wish-I-had-you-back songs, and feeling-good-in-love songs. There’s a song here for every season of a relationship.

The instrumentals are also impressive throughout, including strong piano melodies, smooth acoustic guitar and even some mandolin for good measure. Overall, the album has a bit of a slower feel. If you enjoy country music at all, definitely give this album a listen.
