Lady Antebellum has survived some ups and downs both personally and professionally throughout their decade-plus as a trio. In fact, the group admits to experiencing a challenging period just a couple of years ago when starting to work on their latest album, Ocean.
At the time, Charles Kelley considered giving up on the group. He tells us: ["I know I hit a moment, and I remember Cassie, my wife, saying, ‘This is Charles. He’s having his little moment, but we need to help him get through this and move on.’ And it’s like if they had not been like that, if y’all had been a little bit more like, “Well alright, well screw him,’ who knows where it would have been. I mean, it changed so much about me and my trajectory, and our trajectory. And, I don’t know, I just feel like now we’ve kind of opened up this door of like, let’s just never let anything fester ever again and I think it’s going to, hopefully, push us through till we are . . . (Hillary Scott) A lot grayer than we are now. (Charles) Oh, no doubt.”] SOUNDCUE (:30 OC: . . . Oh, no doubt.)
Lady A went on to score their latest Number One hit, "What If I Never Get Over You," the debut release from their Ocean album.
They're currently making their way up the charts with a new single called “What I’m Leaving For.”
