Lady Antebellum – What IF I Never Get Over You Review
Multi-Platinum, Lady Antebellum signed their debut with Big Machine Label Group. “What If I Never Get Over You,” is the trios first offering since 2017’s Heart Break, which was their final album with longtime label Capitol Nashville. Produced by Dann Huff and written by Sam Ellis, Jon Green, Ryan Hurd and Laura Veltz and the tune is a perfect fit. Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood get back to the sound that catapulted their careers.
“What IF I Never Get Over You” is set to a country rock beat that is relaxed and allows the vocals to shine, and that they do. Especially Charles Kelley, he sings the first verse and is joined by Hillary Scott for the chorus. Kelley’s voice is masculine, warm with personality and his tone is the perfect blend of country and pop. The melody is memorable, the lyrics are meaningful, and the form is one that keeps the music fresh and moving. Lady A has been making hits that are country pop since 2006, and they certainly have a sound that is uniquely theirs. When Kelley and Scott sing as a duet, it is very powerful. They blend exceptionally and have that magic buzz in their harmony. The production of the song is lush, the guitar work is strong only to be matched by outstanding mixing for a superb listen.
Though Kelley is certainly a leading force in the trio’s lead sound, the combination of Scott and Kelley together is sublime. Their latest recording though 2 years in the waiting, is well worth the wait. Hoping to hear much more from this trio, especially with their new label support. Highly recommended.
