Lady Antebellum star Dave Haywood has admitted that enjoying success with Need You Now did have one downside - coming up with the next record.

Lady Antebellum, aka Dave, Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley, have become one of America's biggest country music acts of recent years.

Dave said of the band's international hit: "Need You Now did a lot of things for our career, all great stuff that opened a lot of doors.

"The only negative from that song was some of the pressure that it did put upon us to try and create something like that again."

But he added: "That moment happened without us trying to do anything, other than write a song that we really were into. So we always try to keep that motto for all of our song writing: 'Let's just write what we love'."

The band have recorded their most recent album, Golden, while Hillary has been pregnant and she is soon due to have a baby daughter.

Dave said: "Once Hillary has the baby, we're going to head back out and start touring, and guaranteed at the top of our list is the UK."

:: Lady Antebellum's new single Goodbye Town, from the hit album Golden, is available to download now.
