Lady Antebellum performed their latest single, the emotional “What I’m Leaving For“, on Saturday (April 18) during the one-hour One World: Together at Home special. The trio dedicated the performance to essential workers who continue to leave home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We just want to take a moment to say thank you and our deepest, deepest gratitude to all of the Essential workers right now, our ICU doctors, our nurses, our first responders, our grocery clerks who are making sure that we get the necessities and the sustenance that we need to get through this,” said Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott prior to their stunning performance. “Your tireless and selfless work right now means so, so much and we want to dedicate this song to you.”

Scott and her bandmates each filmed their portions of the performance from different parts of the country, with Dave Haywood in Tennessee and Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley in Florida.

One World: Together at Home was curated by Lady Gaga and put together in an effort to show unity among people across the world who are affected by COVID-19, as well as celebrate and support the courageous frontline health care workers around the world who are doing incredible, life-saving work. The special aired live on Saturday, April 18 on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, and iHeartMedia, as well as Bell Media networks and platforms in Canada.
