Lady Antebellum served as the special artist guest on the season two premiere of Songland, which aired April 13 on NBC.
During the episode, the country trio met with four aspiring songwriters who each pitched their song to the group to record. Newcomer Madeline Merlo wowed the trio with her lighthearted song “Champagne Night,” which she wrote with the help of mentor Shane McAnally.
Following the episode, Lady Antebellum released the winning “Champagne Night.” A laidback tune about living in the moment, the island flavored track has Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley trading vocals about a night out in the country. “Don’t need doubles and bubbles to get in all kinds of trouble out in the country/ Don’t need a crystal chandelier to have a real good time/ We’re drinking beer on a champagne night,” they sing on the chorus.
