Lady Antebellum presented an at-home performance of their recently-unveiled song ‘Champagne Night’ on Monday night’s (11) The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The trio’s performance of the song for Jimmy Fallon has each of the group in quarantine in their homes. But with the use of “a little green screen magic,” as they describe it, it achieves the feat of making them appear to be together with a series of clever backdrops. You can watch it here:
The three members of the star trio wrote the song with the prolific country hit writer Shane McAnally and Canadian country artist Madeline Merlo. Lady Antebellum performed the track on the season two premiere of NBC’s Songland series on 13 April, on which they were guest artists. ‘Champagne Night’ was selected as a single and impacted country radio on 20 April.
“We had a blast bringing this song to life for our episode,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott when the single was announced. “We started the process of the song over the winter in a very different time and headspace. But now, with everything going on, it’s almost like that little dose of exactly what I need right now — a light and fun little reminder to enjoy the simpler moments.”
Billboard enthused about the track’s “snappy rhythms, ear-grabbing production and Lady Antebellum’s memorable harmonies.” ‘Champagne Night’ climbs 53-50 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart this week. In January, the group scored the tenth country No. 1 of their career with ‘What If I Never Get Over You,’ from their current Ocean album, and followed it with ‘What I’m Leaving For,’ from the same set.
The group’s Ocean 2020 tour, which had been due to begin on 21 May, was put back to a 2 July start after the coronavirus outbreak. The itinerary is still currently advertised with that opening date.
