While every project Lady Antebellum is unique and special, the one that the group has released today certainly stands apart from the rest. Today, the trio released the music video for its new single “Heart Break” — one which was filmed in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood chose the location because of the beautiful colonial buildings and vibrant colors, and wrapped filming on the video prior to the island being hit by two catastrophic hurricanes.
Though the video itself will honor Puerto Rico by showing off its beauty, Lady A wanted to call more attention to the horrific hurricane (Maria) that recently ripped through and the way it has deeply affected locals. To that end, the group is premiering the video across all channels today, while simultaneously donating $200,000 from LadyAID® to hurricane relief.
“We got to meet so many locals and enjoy everything that Puerto Rico has to offer. We are just completely heart broken to see the devestation,” said Hillary Scott. “We want to do everything we can to support this incredible place and these incredible people. We just hope and pray for their safety and that rebuilding happens quickly. We encourage everyone to give whatever they can to help.”
“We have always loved traveling to the Caribbean, and Puerto Rico was one of those places we’ve always wanted to go and couldn’t have been a better location for this video,” added Charles Kelley. “One of the coolest things was that all of the dancers in the video were people off the street. They already exuded such a vibrant energy that’s part of the culture in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean as a whole.”
“We save a portion of every ticket on the road to go toward LadyAID®,” noted Dave Haywood. “After spending time in San Juan, we fell in love with the area, the culture, the people, and that country – it was just a beautiful place. Our hearts have been completely broken watching the devastation from all of the hurricanes. We feel personally connected to helping support those affected.”
