Lady Antebellum Performing New Single Tonight on The Tonight Show

lady a downtownLady Antebellum will perform their new single, “Downtown,” tonight on The Tonight Show and they admit they’re a little nervous.  Charles says the fact that it’s a new song and that it’s the first time they’ll be performing it on television adds to the nerves.  Dave Haywood admits that as a group they work really hard and take extra steps to make sure performances like that sound great.  “Bad secret, but we always kind of go into the production room and see if they’ll let us listen to it afterwards.  We’re like, ‘Can we check out how it sounded?’ because we’re always just trying to make sure it sounds flawless.”  Part of that is because they realize what a huge opportunity it is to appear on shows like The Tonight Show.  “When you think about the demographic of people that are up late watching that stuff at night it’s cool,” says Dave.  “It’s not just country fans.  It’s a lot of different types of people, a lot of different ages…  And hopefully this song will be something that will stick out to them, too, if they’ve heard us previously or maybe just knew one or two songs previously, maybe this’ll be one of those songs too that they’ll be like ‘Wow, that’s cool, that’s totally different than the stuff I’ve heard before.’”
