LADY ANTEBELLUM - NEED YOU NOW!
I know there will be a lot of people who will disagree with me that this one should have been higher on the list but I think my main reason for making it my #9 was that I didn't think it was as good as their debut CD. I know! Those are fightin' words for some Lady A fans. Hey, but it still made the list so please don't get too mad at me!
When I first listened to the CD I wasn't over-the-top excited about it. It was one that I listened to a couple times and then put it aside for a month or so and got it back out (same thing happened with my yet-to-be-announced #6 CD) and when I listened to it with a fresh ear I liked it much better for some reason. There's no denying there are so amazing songs on this CD. "Need You Now?" Need I say more? "Perfect Day", "Something 'Bout A Woman" are terrific too and the highlight for me might be "Ready to Love Again" there's something about Hilary's vocals on that song that are so perfect. She has so much emotion in her voice and it's something we've all been through so you can relate to it immediately.
There's a magic to Lady Antebellum. I remember when they were in our conference room and I was blown away by them. It's amazing what three years will bring! These three deserve all the success and accolades they've received. This is a very good CD - but in my opinion not quite as good as the first, but still good enough to make the Top 10 of 2010!!!
