Steeped in music’s power to get us through, WHAT A SONG CAN DO feels like a reawakening for Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott. They “also found a deeper meaning to what they do” (GRAMMY.com), as Haywood steps to the mic for his first-ever lead vocal on the devoted “Working On This Love” while “Friends Don’t Let Friends” brings together the band with Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker and Carly Pearce for the trio’s twang-rocking first true collaboration.
“At its sonic core, the 14-track collection is a classic Lady A release, awash in the thick three-part harmonies that established the band’s identity. Kelley provides a dash of smoke atop the Fleetwood Mac-ish ‘In Waves,’ co-lead Hillary Scott takes a feisty turn as lead on the poppy “You Keep Thinking That,” and the two trade the spotlight seamlessly on the bulk of the tracks.” – Billboard
“Offers up a mix of rich Country-pop ballads (‘Talk of This Town,’ ‘Fire,’ ‘Things He Handed Down’), melodic mid-tempo tunes (‘What A Song Can Do’) and uptempo tracks (‘Like A Lady’) that are at turns, earnest, heartfelt or playful and feature the tight harmonies.” – Atlanta Journal Constitution
