Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night has been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. for sales of one-million copies…just four weeks after its release. The reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year has now sold a total of seven-million albums worldwide. “It’s been a dizzying and exciting few months launching this album, but it’s also really energizing to see how the fans are reacting to some of the songs on our new record,” says Dave Haywood. “The reaction both in the States and overseas has been a huge confidence booster.” Own the Night debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in both the States and Canada in September, becoming the biggest first week debut by a country artist this year. “The theme that I’ve kind of seen throughout it is a lot of these songs are about very specific moments in time,” Lady A’s Hillary Scott says about the group’s latest album.

HS: “The theme that I’ve kind of seen throughout it is a lot of these songs are about very specific moments in time. It’s not just an overall emotion or an overall feeling that’s portrayed in a song. It’s just very specific to moments that throughout your life end up defining who you are.”
