  • Video: Lady Antebellum On Going 'Downtown'

    June 12, 2013 1:52 PM ET | Yahoo Our Country

    Lady Antebellum have been enjoying the spunkiest and sauciest hit of their career with the chart-topping single "Downtown," even as the videos and promotional appearances for it feature Hillary Scott looking ever-so-more pregnant. As the band takes the stage for an exclusive Yahoo! Music performance, the average viewer might not notice Scott's expectancy all that much, thanks to the miracles of slimming black. Still, there is that moment when Scott pleads "I don't know why you don&...  | More »
