A few months ago, a friend Tweeted that he didn't understand the point of a song about drunk-dialing an ex. (I responded with: "Have you ever been in college?") He was referring to Lady Antebellum's huge crossover hit, "Need You Now," which exploded on multiple radio formats shortly after the band's February performance at the Grammy Awards. Although certainly full of mild country signifiers, the tune is a seamless pop song full of longing and regret -- the ideal recipe for a hit. The Nashville trio will be playing at the Fabulous Fox Theater on September 30. Tickets are $38 and $43 and are on sale Friday, July 9, at 10 a.m.
