Lady Antebellum will try to score their 11th No. 1 single with the release of “What I’m Leaving For” on Feb. 18.
Penned by Sam Ellis, Micah Premnath and Laura Veltz, “What I’m Leaving For” is featured on Lady A’s 2019 album, Ocean, and follows the release of lead single, “What If I Never Get Over You.”
“I wore out the demo for this song,” says Lady A’s Dave Haywood. “I immediately related to it. It’s so hard stepping away from your family the way we do, and that song is such a great, beautiful way of articulating what we’re out here doing this for—our families, and those that we love and the fans that love us, too. This song is a beautiful picture of that push and pull of our journey.”
“This song really describes exactly where we’re at in our lives and the give and take to try to find a personal balance with career and family,” says Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “Whether you are in the military, returning from maternity leave or just experiencing those tender-hearted ‘goodbyes,’ we hope it resonates and evokes a piece of comfort in the example we set for our children.”
Lady A’s video for “What I’m Leaving For” features a number of “home movies” with the trio’s six kids.
