The advance charts are out for this week and Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood have climbed all the way to the top spot with their latest single "Downtown." This is the seventh time that Lady Antebellum has reached #1 with a single.
"Downtown" is the lead single from the trio's fourth studio album "Golden" due to be released May 7th. Hillary was nervous about performing the song live before they started rehearsing it, but Dave knew his band mate would be great performing it live.
"I was like, 'I don't know if I can pull this off,'" Hillary says she told Dave and Charles at first.
Dave assured her that she nailed it: "Right when we started the groove and you started singing, it was like, 'Oh, there it is. That's what we've been looking for.'"
Based on Lady Antebellum's performance of "Downtown" on the ACM Awards Show, Dave was right. Hillary nailed it!
Congratulations to Lady Antebellum on "Downtown" hitting #1 on the Billboard Country Singles Airplay chart!
