Lady Antebellum to Release Holiday Album on October 22
We’re still a few months away from the Christmas season, but Lady Antebellum is already in the mood for white lights, hot cocoa and presents under the tree. The award-winning country music trio has been in the studio all summer recording holiday favorites for their upcoming Christmas album, ‘On This Winter’s Night.’ Luckily, the holiday-themed disc will hit digital retailers and store shelves on October 22 — leaving plenty of time to get in the holiday spirit before December arrives.
You’re probably wondering how anyone can get in the Christmas spirit when it’s 100 degrees. In true professional fashion, Lady A worked out a plan to feel the warm and fuzzies of winter, despite recording Christmas tunes in the dead heat of summer.
“We recorded this album in two sections, but both times were in the summertime,” Lady A’s Dave Haywood revealed. “It is always weird to be in the studio working on Christmas music in June and July, so we decorated the entire studio, we really did. We brought out lights, fake trees and decorated the place to get in the Christmas spirit. You’d leave the studio, and it’d be 100 degrees out in Nashville, but nonetheless, a great experience.”
‘On This Winter’s Night’ will be the fourth studio offering from the Grammy Award-winning trio. The disc is sure to be a hit, thanks to the combination of Lady A’s tried and true country vocals and classic Christmas songs like ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas,’ ‘Silent Night,’ and ‘Blue Christmas.’
It’s been a busy year for the ‘Just a Kiss’ hitmakers, who wrapped their We Own the Night U.S. tour a few short months ago. Now, Lady Antebellum is in the process of taking the tour to stops all over the globe. The world leg of the road run will wrap in late October — just in time for ‘On This Winter’s Night’ to start selling on October 22.
