After the overwhelming response to the release of the song “Champagne Night” following the season two premiere of NBC’s Songland, Lady Antebellum is sending the fun-filled track to country radio.

The song, which shot to the No.1 spot on iTunes All-Genre chart upon its release, is going for adds at radio immediately.

“We had a blast bringing this song to life for our episode,” Lady A’s Hillary Scott shared in a statement. “We started the process of the song over the winter in a very different time and headspace. But now, with everything going on, it’s almost like that little dose of exactly what I need right now – a light and fun little reminder to enjoy the simpler moments.”

The carefree tune, which was written on Songland by award-winning songwriter Shane McAnally, aspiring songwriter Madeline Merlo and the trio, offers a different perspective of a night out on the town and finds the group trading fancy glasses for plastic drinkware and champagne for beer.

“Raisin’ plastic cups to a life of luxury/ C’est la vie on a Friday/ We get dressed up in a blue jean tux/ And we go where we don’t hear the highway/Don’t need doubles and bubbles/To get in all kinds of trouble/ Out in the country/ Don’t need a crystal chandelier/ To have a real good time/ We’re drinkin’ beer on a champagne night/ A champagne night,” the trio sings throughout the chorus.

“Champagne Night” is the first song from the popular primetime series to become a radio single.
