Songfacts®:

  • Known at the time as Lady Antebellum, "All We'd Ever Need" was the first song the trio wrote together. After it was released, Dave Haywood of the group said it was their favorite to perform live, telling Country Stars Central: "That first song we wrote called 'All We Ever Need' is probably our favorite to perform. It's just a big moment. I play the piano, Charles (Kelley) and Hillary (Scott) duet. They have battling vocal parts back and forth on it. It's an emotional song about a first love, and a lost love."
