Golden by Lady Antebellum
Released: May 2013
Label: Capitol Nashville
Integrating soul harmonies and pop hooks into their Tennessee sound, Lady A has always been as cosmopolitan as they are country, projecting old-fashioned grace while remaining thoroughly modern. Here on Golden, most songs occur in the past but few sound dated: "Nothin' Like the First Time," for one, finds a high school flame knock, knock, knockin' on faded memories, and "Long Teenage Goodbye," starting with a banjo riff and ending with that titular sayonara, is pure Taylor Swift. Later, "Generation Away" gets historical, with the band finally concluding that there's no time like the present.
