Sure, you can argue that Facebook "likes" are nothing more than a superficial popularity contest that carries no more weight that voting for high school prom queen.
But isn't nice to be one of the prettiest girls in school??
Lady Antebellum hit the 7 million "likes" mark on Facebook—and even the most cynical critic would have to say that Lady A has lots of talent and kindness to go with their good looks.
The trio marked the occasion with a tweet of gratitude : "Thank you to best fans around the WORLD!"
Only Taylor Swift has more Facebook likes in the country world, and she's got a bunch—more than 30.7 million as of Monday morning (April 30).
Lady A does have a Carrie Underwood coming on strong, though. Carrie, who launches a new album Tuesday (May 1), had 6.97 million Facebook likes as of Monday.
Rounding out country's top 5 in Facebook likes:
Jason Aldean comes in at No. 4 with 5.7 million; and Tim McGraw comes in at No. 5 with 4.7 million.
The group closest to Lady A is the Zac Brown Band, which has 4.4 million likes, good for No. 7 overall in the country genre.
