Lady Antebellum Scores 10th No. 1 Single With “What If I Never Get Over You”

Lady Antebellum scored their 10th No. 1 single as “What If I Never Get Over You” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

The tune, which is the lead single from Lady A’s 2019 album, Ocean, is the trio’s first No. 1 single since 2014’s “Bartender.” Penned by Laura Veltz, Sam Ellis, Jon Green and Ryan Hurd, “What If I Never Get Over You” finds Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley trading heavy-hearted vocals over a failed relationship.

“The moment we heard ‘What If I Never Get Over You’ we knew it was going to be an integral piece of Ocean,” said Lady A’s Dave Haywood. “It has been a long time since we released a mid-temp longing duet like this which is so much of who we are and how we started. It sort of felt like coming home and we are grateful to the team behind us and country radio for believing in the song as much as we did from the start.”
