Lady Antebellum Embrace Colourful Spirit Of The Caribbean In ‘Heart Break’ Video

Published

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Before natural disasters struck the Caribbean, current two-time CMA nominated group Lady Antebellum traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico for its colorful Spanish colonial buildings and vibrant culture to provide the backdrop of the music video for their new single “Heart Break.” Now, feeling the urgency more every day to continue to raise awareness and support for those affected after Hurricane Maria stuck the area, Lady A is premiering the new video across all video platforms today while making a donation of $200,000 from LadyAID to hurricane relief efforts via MusiCares® and United for Puerto Rico. Fans can also take part in the ongoing relief efforts by contributing at LadyAID.org.

“We got to meet so many locals and enjoy just everything that Puerto Rico has to offer and so to see all the devastation we are just completely heart broken,” said Hillary Scott. “We want to do everything we can to support this incredible place and these incredible people. We just hope and pray for their safety and that rebuilding happens quickly. We encourage everyone to give whatever they can to help.”

“We have always loved traveling to the Caribbean, and Puerto Rico was one of those places we’ve always wanted to go and couldn’t have been a better location for this video,” added Charles Kelley. “I think one of the coolest things was all of the dancing extras were just people off the street that our director found. They already just exuded that vibrant energy that’s such a part of the people and culture in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean as a whole.”

Our hearts have been completely broken watching the devastation from all of these hurricanes. So, for us a band, we’re now personally connected to helping support those affected by the hurricanes.”

Directed by Shane Drake and shot earlier this year, the video for the title track to Lady A’s CMA “Album of the Year” nominated and No. One selling album HEART BREAK (Capitol Records Nashville) follows a woman’s journey through the town while enjoying the spontaneity and freedom of independence, with an unexpected twist at the end.

Lady Antebellum’s recent CMA “Album of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year” nominations follow more than 18 million album units sold, nine No. One hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMYs, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards. Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone’s “must-see summer tour” will continue on overseas in October as they take their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR to Europe.
