I guess Lady Antebellum teaming up DJ Zedd on last week’s CMT Music Awards was actually just a sign of things to come because the trio apparently recorded a song called “Something Better” with EDM DJ Audien. Join us in saying….what in the what?! EDM is that electronic dance sound. I’m still scratching my head…
And I guess Lady A was kind of shocked Audien approached them, but they ended up loving the song’s lyrics and melody.
Charles Kelley had this to say: “It was like, ‘This is one of the best songs I’ve heard in a long time,’ ’cause lyrically it was kind of powerful.”
“I think we’re learning as a band to not be too scared about things,” Charles says. “We’ll always stay true to the country genre, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun and go, ‘Hey, we’ll be featured over here.’”
And just in case anyone is going to talk shit about this. (Oops?) Charles was quick to remind people about tour mate Sam Hunt’s recent crossover to pop with “Take Your Time” and Tim McGraw’s 2004 collaboration with Nelly on “Over and Over”. Uhhh okay because that makes it okay?
Charles went on, “It’s like, come on! It’s Tim McGraw. George Strait’s not gonna do that, but…”
Well, I guess I won’t judge until I hear it.
