Golden Christmas Moments From Lady Antebellum
Factfile - Lady Antebellum
- Their 6 track 2010 EP A Merry Little Christmas was only available for purchase at Target. It had one original song, On This Winter's Night. All 6 tracks made it onto their 2012 album, On This Winter's Night.
- On This Winter's Night has received gold certification in the US and platinum in Canada.
It didn’t take Nashville country band Lady Antebellum long to make a Christmas album, for Dylan it took several decades but this trio achieved it in half a one. ‘On This Winter’s Night’ came out in 2012 and was followed the following year by a live blu-ray version called ‘Lady Antebellum: Live – On This Winter’s Night’ with an orchestra of 40 plus adding the requisite string embellishment. ‘On This Winter’s Night’ was a mix of old and new tracks from the band with half a dozen previously appearing on their 2010 EP called ‘A Merry Little Christmas’. 11 of the album’s 12 tracks were Lady Antebellum’s own reading of popular classics such as ‘A Holly Jolly Christmas’, ‘Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home) (the twist being that the vocals were male this time) and ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. So far so many stellar choices and Lady Antebellum must be applauded for not trying to redo perfection but rather give it their own slant – namely a contemporary country styling. So ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is much less exuberant than the Mariah Carey original but Hilary Scott’s vocals have a strong enough personality to pull it off. It could almost be Dolly Parton at the peak of her powers but then Dolly probably never had such a talented set of musicians to colour her singing.
With such strong competition from the yuletide classics that surround it you would have expected the album’s only original track ‘On This Winter’s Night’ to suffer as a result and sadly you’d be right. Although it is a competent composition it lacks the spark of much of the rest of the album. You got to give Lady Antebellum plenty of plaudits though for an album’s that for the most part puts a contemporary sparkle on age old standards. So much so that their next festive collection could be the one that really puts them up there with the Christmas greats.
This winter's night
Lady Antebellum, On This Winter's Night
Icicle lights will trim the tree
This winter's night, Wrapped a present or two from you and me
Tuck our children into bed
And dream the night away...
