I hate to dump on a new artist, particularly an act that shows such promise as Lady Antebellum. But to my ears, this sounds like a complete trainwreck. It’s novel having a mixed-gender group release a song where a male and female member perform it like a duet, but there’s no chemistry on the track. The female vocal in particular sounds harsh, and when they sing together? Ouch.
The one night stand lyric comes off as sleazy, mostly because they don’t turn up the charm enough to pull it off. The backing track is too loud and the guitar riff is irritating. All in all, I’d rather hear “Love Don’t Live Here” another hundred times than listen to this again.
