Lady Antebellum is back on top of Billboard’s Country Albums chart with their latest, Own the Night. Lady A’s Dave Haywood gives some insight into the beginnings of the album’s #1 single, “We Owned the Night.” “Well, we wrote that with Dallas Davidson and actually started that on the mandolin, which we've never started writing a song on the mandolin before. We were out on the road and Dallas was like, 'You play mandolin right Dave?' I was like, 'Yeah. But I mean, you can't write a song on the mandolin.' But we grabbed it and tried it. And gosh, I feel like within 30 minutes had a lot of the song structure laid out." Lady Antebellum is honored as one of CMT’s Artists of the Year, during a special airing December 13th at 9PM Eastern on CMT.
