After taking a hiatus last year, Lady Antebellum is back.
The country trio put the band on hold to pursue solo projects, but has returned with the swaggering new song “You Look Good,” from their upcoming album “Heart Break,” due June 9.
Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood also plan to hit the road for the 65-show You Look Good World Tour, which launches in May in California and will feature Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young as openers.
Many of the dates – including their Atlanta stop – haven’t been announced yet (those that are part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket will go on sale in select cities Jan. 27). Tickets for the tour are expected to become available Feb. 17.
At 9 p.m. tonight (Jan. 17), Lady A will host a Facebook Live fan event to premiere new music. Check it out here.
“We knew right away that we had to name this album after a track that is a play on the word ‘heartbreak,’” Scott said in a statement. ”It’s all about those personal growths everyone goes through and it was liberating to get back in the studio with Charles and Dave to intertwine those feelings into the recording process.”
“You Look Good” is available now at all digital and streaming services. Take a look at the lyric video as well as the cities the tour will visit this year.
