Blend up a pina colada and kick back, because Lady A just released a single titled "Summer State Of Mind." Tuesday, June 21 marked the first official day of summer, and to celebrate – the Grammy Award-winning group released a breezy hit to include on your poolside soundtrack.
Lady A's leading lady Hillary Scott wrote the feel-good track alongside her bandmate Dave Haywood, Sam Ellis, and critically acclaimed songsmith Laura Veltz. The group compares a romantic relationship to a beautiful summer day throughout the mid-tempo melody, that also displays their iconic vocal blend.
"I'm the ice, you're the Yeti | I'm the boat, steady oh, you're the Petty | I'mn the dance floor, you're confetti | Always up when I'm down, always ready | You can take a worry, flip that into a song | I don't even notice till I'm singing along |I forget that there was ever anything wrong |How do you do it babe?" sings Charles Kelley with his soothing pipes.
Scott mentioned that the lyrics came naturally and rolled right off their tongue during the writing process.
"When we got together and wrote this song a few months ago, it almost started writing itself," she explained in a press release. "We were all looking ahead to the warmer months and those easygoing moments that we enjoy most."
The multi-platinum trio debuted the summer jam at CMA Fest.The tropical-like instrumentals made up of rhythmic percussion and reggae-like guitar pulls, left concert-goers embracing the care-free moments of summertime.
"When we had a chance to perform the song for the first time during CMA Fest, the fans really got in the spirit - it was the perfect way to kick off the summer," Scott pointed out.
Country music fans are already praising the feel-good track destined to become the summer anthem of 2022 on social media.
"Just when I think y'all can't get any better…you just keep putting out hits!" gushed a follower. "I love how you guys always manage to do something creative! Congrats on the new song, it's amazing 😎" said another.
