Dancin' Away With My Heart

Album: Own The Night (2011)
Charted: 46
  • This bittersweet ballad is a track from Country music group Lady Antebellum's third studio album Own The Night. The Lady A trio wrote it along with Josh Kear. The Nashville songwriter's other credits include Carrie Underwood's country #1 "Before He Cheats" and Lady A's own smash hit "Need You Now."
  • Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott explained the song's meaning to The Boot: "This song is about looking back on a really special night that you shared with someone, but I also think there's a timelessness about it. No matter how long it's been or what the other person is doing now, you will always imagine them to be '18 and beautiful and dancin' away with my heart' ... that mental picture never changes because that night was magical. I love how romantic that is!"
