Things couldn’t get better for Country trio, Lady Antebellum as their sophomore album, Need You Now, has landed at the No. 1 position on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Their sales have surpassed 480,000 units.

“We are absolutely stunned…the love and support we were feeling last week from the fans and everyone around us was so incredible,” said Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood in a statement.  “These songs are about our lives…they’re really personal…and to be getting such awesome feedback from everyone who bought the record is so validating.  THANK YOU, Lady A fans…see you on the road soon!”
The group recently performed their chart topping hit “Need You Now” at the Grammy Awards and went home with the award for Best Country Performance By A Duo or Group with Vocals for their single, “I Run To You.”
“We were so focused on making that Grammy performance the best it could possibly be,” explained Hillary Scott. “We put all of our emotions into it, and really just went for it.  We’ll never forget what an amazing week we had!”
