Lady Antebellum points 'Compass' toward 'Ellen DeGeneres Show'

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Oct 21, 2013

Lady Antebellum will perform their new single, "Compass," Tuesday (Oct. 22) on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show." The new track, which is available at all digital retailers now, will be part of the special deluxe edition of "Golden," the multi-award-winning trio's latest album, set for release Nov. 12.

"It’s so fun that Ellen keeps having us back to share new music," says the group's Hillary Scott. "Our very first TV performance was on Ellen and she continues to be a big supporter of ours, so it’s really special that we get to come back after this little break to debut 'Compass.'"

"Compass" comes on the heels of the threesome's seven No. 1 hits at country radio. They've also scored recent CMA nominations for Vocal Group and Music Video of the Year for their latest chart-topper, "Downtown." In addition, Hillary, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley are nominated for Favorite Country Band, Duo or Group at the upcoming American Music Awards.
