Lady Antebellum teamed with Monty Powell to write their new song, “I Did With You” specifically for The Best of Me, an upcoming Nicholas Sparks film. But for the song’s brand-new video, the lyrics are played out not on the big screen but on the stage of a high school play. (Watch above.)
The Best of Me, starring Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden, hits theaters October 17th; its soundtrack will be out October 7th. Watch the movie trailer (also starring Lady Antebellum) here. Other artists on the compilation include Eli Young Band, Hunter Hayes, David Nail, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves and Thompson Square.
September has already been a month of a lot of Lady A celebrations, including the birth of guitarist/pianist Dave Haywood’s first child and the chart-topping success of their latest single, “Bartender” — the trio’s ninth career Number One hit. Capping off their whirlwind month, the group’s fifth studio album, 747, hits stores September 30th.
“We need to evolve,” Charles Haywood tells Rolling Stone Country of the more boundary-pushing sound of their new LP. “Recently, the songs that have been our biggest successes have been left-of-center for us.”
