Lady Antebellum's 'Downtown' Is Their Fastest Charting Number One Song

Not only is Lady Antebellum's latest single "Downtown" their seventh career number one hit, it has become their fastest-charting single to date.

"Most of what the world has seen from Hillary (Scott) from a radio single standpoint is this very sweet kind of style like 'American Honey'," the group's Charles Kelley tells the Boot.

"But she's got a lot of sass and a lot of grit to her voice, too, so it's been really fun to bring that out of her and have this kind of support from our fans and radio."

"Downtown" is the first single released from Lady A's upcoming fifth studio album, Golden, due in stores May 7. The follow-up to 2011's highly successful Own the Night will be released via Capitol Nashville.
