May 12, 2009 — Lady Antebellum's current single, "I Run To You," cleverly rhymes "faster" and "disaster" in a gorgeous melody and inviting harmonies, and it sounds so natural it feels as if it was something the trio just sort of threw together.
In reality, "I Run To You" was a difficult song to write, and Lady A benefited from working with Tom Douglas, who'd previously written such hits as Reba McEntire's "Lit tle Rock," Martina McBride's "Love's The Only House" and Tim McGraw's "Grown Men Don't Cry."
"He had a lot of the lyrics already written down in this poem and we kind of pieced it together like a puzzle," Charles Kelley told Dial-Global. "Then we wrote the chorus along those same sentiments, but he had that opening line. It was just a fun write. I don't think we admit that a lot of times when just the three of us write, we're stuck in the same content lyrically, just because that's what we're going through. Sometimes it is hard for us to step outside the box and look at what's going on outside the world. Tom, he's one of these guys that's a lot wiser of a soul than us, and so it was a nice song to be a part of and really proud of it."
"I Run To You" has become the third Top 15 hit in Lady A's career, joining their first two singles, "Love Don't Live Here" and "Lookin' For A Good Time."
