Country-music trio Lady Antebellum, consisting of former Augusta-area residents Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood and also Hillary Scott, of Nashville, Tenn., announced Tuesday that its fourth Capitol Nashville studio album Golden would be in stores May 7.
“The word ‘golden’ to me conjures up a lot of pictures,” said Haywood, whose parents live in North Augusta. “In the title track, it depicts driving down the road at sunset, but, to me, it also depicts a special time in our career – a ‘golden,’ special time for us. We definitely want to value this time in our careers because it’s such a treasure that we can still sit in a room and write songs together.”
The trio’s new single is Downtown from the Golden album.
