“It feels like the best way to celebrate the first week of the new year,” says the group’s Hillary Scott.
Lady A notches its 11th No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart as “Champagne Night” jumps 4-1 on the list dated Jan. 9. The song increased by 23% to 26.6 million audience impressions in the week ending Jan. 3, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
Lady A appeared on the second-season premiere of NBC’s songwriting competition series Songland, which aired April 13, 2020. The track “I’ll Drink to That” was chosen by the act as the winning song on the episode, and Lady A, which comprises Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, then reworked it with co-producer Shane McAnally (who serves as a mentor on Songland), changing the title to “Champagne Night.”
