Lady Antebellum recently announced their decision to part ways with long-time record label, Capitol Records, and sign a new label agreement with Big Machine. This comes after 10 years spent with Capitol, and seven studio albums released through the record label.
According to Taste of Country, the trio described this change in their music careers as a fresh and new opportunity. Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, of Lady Antebellum, believe this decision has been the creative spark they feel they need after their time spent with Capitol Records. “We just felt some really new, excited energy from Big Machine,” Kelly described in a Nash FM interview. “They had heard some of the songs we’d been writing and [we] just really felt like they had a fresh energy that would be fun.”
The group also revealed that experiences in each of the member’s personal lives, as well as shared group experiences, have led to influences in their new music. The label change has given them the creative freedom to explore these sparks of creativity, the band has stated. Kelley went on to share that: “We’ve been going through a lot as a group and even in our personal lives, just growing in our families and growing as a band and we’re ready to kinda really throw it all out on a record.”
