YMMV / Lady A

Go To

  • Covered Up: Eric Paslay, co-writer of the album cut "Friday Night" from Own the Night, had a Top 5 hit in 2014 with his own version.
  • Dork Age: Golden and 747 both sold poorly and their singles largely underperformed on the charts, due to a combination of poor single choices and a forced attempt at shedding the "sleepy" sound of Golden.
  • Epic Riff: The piano notes at the start of "Need You Now".
  • Funny Moments: This parody of "Body Like a Back Road" which features Charles and Dave singing about wearing bathrobes on a bus.

  • I Am Not Shazam: Some people call Hillary Scott "Lady Antebellum".
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!: Some music critics have said this of Own the Night, on which many of the songs have the same "epic" instrumentation as "Need You Now".
  • Never Live It Down: The name change actually got them more flak for racial insensitivity than it took off them, because within a few months they'd filed legal action against a black singer who'd been going by Lady A for 20 years and didn't want to give the name up.
  • Signature Song: "Need You Now".
  • Tear Jerker: "Hello World". It makes you really want to appreciate life more...
    • Also "Wanted You More". Bittersweet melody, good heartfelt vocals, and as for the lyrics? Ouch, heartbreaking...
    • "Need You Now", of course. While it's basically just about "booty calls", it can be interpreted as a sad heartbreak song between two angry partners.

How well does it match the trope?
