Lady Antebellum’s third studio album, Own the Night, hits stores Tuesday, Sept. 13. The six-time GRAMMY Award winning group’s last album, Need You Now, became triple platinum and their latest single “Just A Kiss” recently spent multiple weeks at the top of the radio charts in the U.S. and Canada. The upcoming album is highly anticipated for country music fans.
The band spent more time writing and recording this latest album than ever before, and they kick off their international release schedule in Green Bay, Wis. Thursday with a pregame performance airing live on NBC, USA Network from the NFL’s Kickoff 2011 and will re-air in primetime on Sept. 10 on NBC. The remaining schedule includes TV appearances on GAC’s Backstory: Lady Antebellum on Sept. 11, a special 9/11 performance of the National Anthem on NBC before the Jets and Cowboys open their season at MetLife Stadium, also on Sept. 11, TODAY on Sept. 13, The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Sept. 16, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Sept. 16, CBS Sunday Morning on Sept. 25 and Saturday Night Live on Oct. 1.
"We've literally been working towards these next few weeks all year," said Charles Kelley. "The anticipation of being able to FINALLY share these songs with our fans is killing us. Hopefully, those who have been with Lady A for a long time will see this as the next chapter for us as songwriters and performers; and the people who aren't as familiar with us will check it out and maybe find something on the album they dig. We're really just excited to get it out and then kick off the new tour."
Lady A’s Own The Night 2011 Tour begins on Nov. 11 in Knoxville, Tenn. The tour name and album title were both inspired by their new single, the anthemic, “We Owned the Night.”
