Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood recorded Lady Antebellum's self-titled debut album and released it in 2008. It included the singles "Love Don't Live Here," "Lookin' for a Good Time" and "I Run to You," which became the trio's first Number One hit on the Billboard country charts. In 2010, Lady Antebellum released its second album, Need You Now, which was led off by the five-week #1 hit "Need You Now."
