How songs get written: The story behind Lady Antebellum’s “You Look Good”
"You Look Good" is a hit for Lady Antebellum and the first single off their new album, "Heart Break" which will be released next Friday. The group wrote most of the songs on the project, but not "You Look Good".
According to Billboard, "You Look Good" was written on May 26, 2016. It was written by Ryan Hurd, Hillary Lindsey and sonwriter/producer busbee (name always spelled with a small "b"), two days after they took part in a 90s Night party at a bar in Nashville, which accounts for the 90s sound of the song.. Ryan is the boyfriend of Maren Morris, who was, by some accounts, the inspiration for the song. And even though he co-wrote it, it was decided the song was "out of place" for Ryan's album.
And then another rising star of country music passed on the song, leaving it for Lady Antebellum, who jumped right on it as a "car crash" song for their new album.
