Gloriana Describes the ‘Evolving Process’ Behind Their New Album, ‘A Thousand Miles Left Behind’

Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own the Night’ Debuts at Number 1

In what might be the least surprising debut of the year, Lady Antebellum‘s new album has ended its first week at the top of the charts — pretty much all of them, in fact.

With sales of nearly 350,000 units, ‘Own the Night’ outpaced its competition by a wide margin, coming in at number one on the country charts, as well as Billboard’s overall Top 200 tally. As an added bonus, it also topped the album sales charts in Canada.

How Did Lady Antebellum Get Through Their ‘Really Hard’ Early Years?

Lady Antebellum struck platinum with their first album and they haven’t looked back, sending each of their first nine singles to the top 20 and selling more than five million albums in the U.S. since 2008. It’s a success story that plenty of bands would love to duplicate, to say the least.
