It was announced last week that Lady Antebellum was going to have a song in the upcoming Spongebob Squarepants musical opening on Broadway December 4th. The song is called “Chop to the Top” based on a particular scene in the musical. The band wrote the tune a few years ago, and it’s just now resurfacing.
“The Spongebob musical opportunity kind of came about randomly. We got approached if we could write a song for it and they gave us the scene and kind of a direction. We wrote the song called ‘Chop to the Top’ [laughs], and it was funny, we didn’t hear much about it for so many years,” says Charles.
“Those musicals must take forever to put together, because we were like, ‘Well, I guess it fell through,’ and all of a sudden, years later it resurfaced that it’s coming out. So, I can’t wait to see it. It’ll be fun to take the kids.”
Lady A’s currently making their way up the top of the charts with their single, “You Look Good,” which they’ll perform during their You Look Good World Tour making a stop in Darien Center, New York on Thursday (August 10th), followed by shows in Holmdel, New Jersey and Mansfield, Massachusetts.
