Lady Antebellum’s Hit “Downtown” Goes No. 1

And the trio's reaction? Whew.

Most music acts are ecstatic when their new single hits No. 1 on radio charts.

Lady Antebellum? Well, the trio is mostly relieved.

You see, "Downtown" is the first single from the upcoming album Golden, out May 7, and "Downtown" has indeed hit No. 1.

That didn't happen with the lead single from the trio's last album, Own the Night, so Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood were actually relieved when "Downtown" became a chart-topper.

"Helps you breathe a little bit," Hillary, laughing, told ABC News Radio.

"Yeah, for sure. You're always a little nervous about what people are gonna think," added Charles. "I think last time we had a No. 1 before our record came out was 'Need You Now,' so it's a good sign."
