The culmination of the C2C Country To Country Festival in London today (Sunday) will be marked by a headline performance at the 02 Arena by one of modern country’s freshest talents, Lady Antebellum. This follows their headline performance last night at the Dublin edition of C2C at the 03 Arena, and their C2C shows last weekend in Oslo and Stockholm.
To mark the occasion, the band’s second album, ‘Need You Now,’ is now available in the Sounds Like Nashville campaign, which features many landmark country releases at low prices. Click on the links below for more details.
It was in February 2010 that ‘Need You Now,’ named after their runaway hit of the year before, debuted at No. 1 on both the pop and country charts in America. Exactly 365 days later, the record won the Grammy Award for Country Album of the Year.
The three-piece of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley abd Dave Westwood had enjoyed substantial success with their first, self-titled album of 2008, which topped the country charts and was certified platinum the following year. But it was the spectacular and long-lasting popularity of ‘Need You Know’ that took their career into the stratosphere. It topped the country and adult contemporary charts, reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 and became a hit all over the world.
That helped fuel the No. 1 debut in the US for an album that sold almost half a million copies in its first week, and was platinum in just a month. It spent two weeks atop the Billboard 200, but an awesome 24 at the country summit, where it remained unbeatable until July.
Two more country No. 1s followed from it in ‘American Honey’ and ‘Our Kind Of Love,’ adding even more fuel to the album. It bounced back to the country summit for three more weeks in August 2010, two in September and, helped by that Grammy triumph, two more weeks the following March.
