Lady Antebellum are arguably one of the top country groups in their genre, but they still have a fondness for hip-hop music and Drake is their top choice.

The trio, who hale from Nashville, Tenn., and took home the American Music Award in the Favorite Country Music Band, Duo or Group category, raved about the Young Money MC, who performed his song ‘Headlines,’ during the show Sunday (Nov. 20) night.

“That new Drake album is sick,” group member Charles Kelley, tells The BoomBox of ‘Take Care.’ “It’s so good.”

“[My favorite is] probably [‘The Real Her’],” he admits. “He does the collaboration with Lil Wayne and Andre 3000. We’re from Georgia so we like Atlanta and rap.”

After meeting the Toronto native at last year’s Grammy awards, and becoming fans of his work, Lady A would love to collaborate with him in the future. “That’d be kinda cool to see what we come up with,” Kelley continued. “He’s definitely at the top of our list as far as rappers go.”

Despite leaking to the Internet one week before its release, Drake’s sophomore album is shaping up to be another success for the 25-year-old. Industry estimates place the album at the top of the Billboard album charts, with first week sale projections at 675,000-725,000.
