Lady Antebellum returned to country radio with a new single, “What If I Never Get Over You,” on May 17. The new single is the lead from their upcoming eighth studio album, which will be the trio’s first project since leaving Universal Music Group and signing with Big Machine.
The new tune, which was helmed by longtime producer Dann Huff, finds Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley trading heavy-hearted vocals over a failed relationship. The duet was penned by Laura Veltz, Sam Ellis, Jon Green and Ryan Hurd.
“It’s been several years since we’ve had a chance to release a duet like this as a single,” says Charles. “When we played it for our team their excitement reassured us this song was the one to lead with out of the gate. It’s been a bit of our magic from day one. Our very first song in 2006, ‘All We’d Ever Need,’ was just written for Hillary, but she said, ‘Charles, you should sing a verse too’ and that’s how we started the co-lead singer thing.”
