Lady Antebellum is celebrating their fifth No. 1 single this week as “Just A Kiss” tops the Billboard Country Singles chart. The lead single from their upcoming album, Own The Night, due out September 13, also earned platinum certification for selling over a million digital downloads and is in its third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Canada Country chart.
“Seeing country radio and the fans embrace the first single off our new album like this has been amazing and also a little relieving,” Charles Kelley said. “There are definitely some nerves and anxiousness involved when you are introducing new music, and this reaction has been beyond what we hoped for. It just makes us even more excited for Sept. 13 to get here.”

“Just A Kiss” was a hit with fans almost immediately, debuting at No. seven on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart as the highest debut by a country group in the chart’s 52-year history. The band received another honor on Sunday night when they won the fan-voted Choice Music: Country Group at the Teen Choice Awards.
