Lady Antebellum’s self-titled debut brilliantly captures the passion, playfulness, and pain at the core of the country music experience. Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott share lead vocal duties while guitarist Dave Haywood fleshes out the harmonies, a potent collaboration that yields stunning results. Lady Antebellum is an engaging 11-song collection that strikes a near-perfect balance between the joy of love and the vulnerability of the heart, all the while showcasing the trio’s mature musical sensibilities, varied influences and fresh songwriting perspective. It’s simply one of the finest debut albums to emerge from Nashville in recent memory.
