Lady Antebellum never really slows down for long.
The country trio is still in the middle of their "Take Me Downtown" tour -- supporting their "Golden" album, which arrived shortly before singer Hillary Scott's daughter, Eisele, was born last year -- and they're already announcing plans for the next album, "747," (Capitol Nashville), which is due out Sept. 30, around the time singer/guitarist Dave Haywood's first child is also due.
All that change should make for an interesting show at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater Sunday night, along with openers Billy Currington and Joe Nichols. Here's what to watch for:
THE "COMPASS" DIRECTION The band sees its "Compass" single, which featured more of a beat-driven, Mumford-and-Sons-ish approach, as a new driving force for the group. "I know that once we released 'Compass' as a single, the energy that song brought to our career, to our live show, it was really evident that was something we needed more of," Scott told The Associated Press recently.
THE ACOUSTIC SET Part of what sets Lady A apart from other country bands is the way their voices blend together. That blend really stands out when the band goes acoustic for "Goodbye Town," "Wanted You More" and "Hello World" in the middle of their set.
