Need You Now is the title of Grammy winning trio Lady Antebellum's second album. The band’s first album, from 2008, achieved the very rare freshman feat to debut at No. 1 in the US as well as go Platinum in the prcoess. Less than two years after the trio's debut first hit stores, Lady Antebellum follow up with Need You Now.
The trio's sophomore album not only also debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 charts and stayed there for two weeks but was certified Platinum in the US (1M sold) in three short weeks. Lady Antebellum have also celebrated back-to-back chart-topping singles, proceeding directly from the previous effort's "I Run to You" hitting the top spot in July to their "Need You Now" enjoying a multi-week run at No. 1 just prior to the new album's stateside release.
* This UK release of Need You Now also features two tracks lifted from their debut album, "Lookin For A Good Time" and "I Run To You", not featured on the US release.
In the US, Nashville country-rock trio Lady Antebellum have become monstrously big with indecent haste. This second album shifted well over a million in its first month and is still flying. It's up there with Grammy-magnets like Beyoncé and Gaga. To introduce them to the British public, Need You Now has the award-winning I Run to You, from 2008's eponymous debut, tagged onto the end. Although their press release suicidally compares them to Bon Jovi and Kelly Clarkson, they are–and this is evident from chord one–the new Fleetwood Mac.
Which means they are, at least stateside, all things to all white people. They retain just enough country-twang elements to satisfy purists, but ladle on slick pop hooks and reasonably gutsy guitar chugs and solos to woo the rock fraternity. If the girl-boy vocals give them their Mac attack, stabs of winking humour ensures this is the next album bought by people who miss Shania Twain.
Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott form a curious three-headed beast–in their videos you're never quite sure who's in the band and who's a model. They're a bit scary. They are the ultimate corporate behemoth, here to shift cars and steal our children.
But here's the thing: they're not awful. Need You Now, in particular, is a huge hoary pop seduction, with a chorus it'd take a heart of stone to resist. Immediately, it announces itself as power-anthem paradise, evoking such guilty-pleasure godhead as Alone by Heart or I Drove All Night by Roy Orbison/Cyndi Lauper. You'll briefly, secretly love it with a passion for about three weeks before TV talent-show kids start devaluing it. That is one belting chorus. "It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk but I need you now..." Springsteen should cover it. American Honey is more acoustic and nostalgic, craftily doubling its sales by putting "American" in the title. Lookin' for a Good Time begins with a Tom Petty riff which is so cheesy it's radioactive, while I Run to You has "punch the air triumphantly" stamped on its chest.
Genius. Evil genius, obviously, but fiendishly effective. --Chris Roberts

My personal favourite on this album is 'When you got a good thing' and of course 'Need you now' I like these songs so much, when I get married I want these songs on my wedding playlist!
They are a fab country band and honestly we need more of this kind of music around, instead of all the tosh you have in the UK top 40 charts.
I would definitely recommend, I cannot wait to hear their latest material!
Look out especially for track 4 ""Hello World", track 3, "American Honey" and track 7 "When you got a good thing".
One of the best contemporary country bands to come out of Nashville in recent years.
And they are fantastic live !!
Will get the next album when its out.
So hearing that Lady Antebellum were a country-rock trio was always likely to float my musical boat. It seems I'm not alone in this thought, with their second album "Need You Now" winning the Best Country Album aware at the 2011 Grammy Awards and the lead single, also the title track, picking up the Grammy for Record of the Year. Shortly after purchase, the aforementioned "Need You Now" quickly became one of the most played songs on my iTunes, but sitting down and listening to the album properly showed that they are much more than one song.
Even allowing for the slight predictability of the track order late on the album and the minor disappointment that two of the 12 tracks have been borrowed from the debut album, this is a wonderful album. I'd go so far as to say that this is probably the second best country rock album I have ever heard, bettered only by Lady Antebellum's own debut. If you have any interest in country music and especially country-rock music, this is a must have.Read more ›
