Lady Antebellum is on a winning streak.
The country trio, which includes Augusta boys Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, are fresh from a Grammy win for best country performance by a duo or group for their No. 1 hit “I Run to You.”
Now the group puts the cherry on their winning Sunday with a No. 1 album. “Need You Now,” the band’s second album, debuts at No. 1 on the latest Billboard 200 chart with sales of 481,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That’s the highest debut for a country act since Taylor Swift’s “Fearless” landed at the top with 592,000 in Nov. 2008, Billboard reports.

The trio is set to play with Tim McGraw at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood on May 15.
