And The Radio Played

  • Lyrics
  • This originated with a song idea by Charles Kelley and songwriter Josh Kear that they brought to the rest of Lady Antebellum and their producer, Nathan Chapman. Everybody then worked on the last two verses.
  • Lady A's Dave Haywood commented that the tune reminds him of listening to the radio growing up. "What I loved about this song was that every single one of these song titles that we reference has such a distinct memory to a certain point of time growing up," he said. "We thought it'd be great to have a song that mentions these songs because it makes you think about the memories. Instead of just listing out the memories, we list out the songs, and you go straight to those places. So, it was a really cool way to acknowledge a lot of the greats before us in country music, a really cool way to tip our hat to a lot of songs that, I mean, when were 10 years old, 15, growing up even younger than that, getting turned on to country music."
