Lady Antebellum ‘owns night’

Lady Antebellum fans will not be disappointed after the release of their third album “Own the Night.” The six- time Grammy Award winning country trio Lady Antebellum released the album in September after their huge success with their self-titled debut album and “Need You Now.”
Their most recent album is the number one country album in Billboard’s chart nearly a month later after its release and the lead single “Just a Kiss” successfully captures the emotions of two people who find love and are scared to delve too deep.
The album begins with “We Own the Night.” The upbeat tune relates the blissful experience of a night that defined a summer. In a release on their website, the group said the Grammy Awards were a once-in-a-lifetime experience and knew they had to work twice as hard to keep their success. The synchrony of the song takes listeners through a wave of increasing delight followed by a recessive swing into soothing melodies.
Although I am not a country music fan, “Wanted You More” captivated me. The country tones are subtle, mixing the electrifying strokes of the electric guitar and the booming drums. The song opens with a guitar solo and builds momentum throughout for a harmonious piece. Hillary Scott pleasantly accompanies the background voices of Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood. Lady Antebellum sing: “I don’t need you anymore. I guess I wanted you more and looking back now I’m sure,
I wanted you more.” It is a complete counter claim to last year’s Grammy- winning single “New You Now.”
Lady Antebellum distinguish themselves from other popular country artists by their close-to-home lyrics that many can relate to, young and old. Although most of the album songs deal with a breakup or some type of betrayal, “Heart of the World” lyrics offer hope that a couple will remain together. The song is a slow and mellow ballad alluding to the married life.
Scott sings: “I leave him sleepin’ as I rise early. Always up before the dawn. The house is dark, but I see clearly. Kettle sings a morning song. The bacon’s frying, babies crying. I soak up the sights and sounds. Minutes turn to days and I wish that I could slow it down.”
The diversity that Lady Antebellum brings with this song is a nice breather from the usual love-hungry or love- struck portrayal of youth. The song rejoices in the everyday duties of marriage.
On “Friday Night,” Dave Haywood plays the mandolin to add an idiosyncratic pitch well recognize above the other musical instruments. The voices seem to run in together throughout the verses, but Lady Antebellum succeeds in strengthening the chorus.
The group’s new album isn’t far from its previous albums. The melodies resemble one another but Lady Antebellum demonstrates it can catch the attention of fans from other genres while appealing to their followers with fresh, poetic hits.
