Lady Antebellum - Just A Kiss

Just a Kiss - Lady Antebellum |

This music video has got on my nerves today, but you'll find out why later...

After reviewing "Need You Now" last week, I'm excited I get to do another Lady Antebellum song. For those of you who didn't read my review then... The band comprises of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood. They got their name from taking pictures of Antebellum homes down in the American South, and Hillary Scott had attempted American Idol twice and they didn't let her through, but it looks like it was meant to be, otherwise this band may not have come together. My Friend Edges is a fan of theirs and claims this song as one of their best.

The song was written by Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Dallas Davidson who is a country singer-songwriter and has helped with a lot of songs, now he is attempting to release his own music. This song sounds like a great song to listen to, this band makes me feel relaxed and contempt with their songs, that it's so peaceful to listen to. The song is about their own experiences and being in a relationship that feels special, but in which you don't want to overstep the mark.

The music video is amazing, I like the use of actors and then the band singing behind them as if it's some sort of soundtrack to their story, which is quite imaginative. However the annoying thing for me is that I recognise the girl who plays "Joy", but I have no clue where from. I have spent about an hour trying to find out who it is, but all I come up with is Victoria Young (who does look like her) and yet none of her credits leap out at me, telling me where I've seen her from... So maybe it's not Victoria Young, or maybe it is and she just has a familiar face. (EDIT: Danielle Donn is the actress who plays "Joy", it has been confirmed). As for the guy, that is Andrew Jackson Murphy who is an upcoming actor, and I reckon he'll become big in no time at all.

Another thing that was pointed out by people posting on the Internet is that in Joy's dream Brady calls her "Julie" during the tablet message... I thought I heard wrongly at first, but he definitely says Julie instead of Joy, I'm surprised it's not been changed yet.

The story is basically a dream come true, two star-crossed lovers fall for one another and they have such a great time, next thing we know, it has been a total dream but the person who woke Joy up is the person from her dream, the guy she never knew, was that a premonition of times to come? Or is it merely just a wish that may never come true?

Overall, a great music video and again I can't fault Lady Antebellum apart from the name change during the video with Joy, but other than that there's nothing bad I can say about it. But someone please tell me who the one who plays Joy is and where I may have seen her from... Thanks in advance.

  1. I'm going to the Atlanta show in June. The doors open at 5:30. I have General Admission Floor tickets that i get from Ticketpolice.com , so, there is no seat or row number. I'm just wondering when other people got there so I know how early I need to be in line waiting for the doors to open. ?!

  2. The girl who plays Joy/Julie is the same girl from the Taylor Swift "Sparks Fly" video, so thats where you recognised her from probably.

  3. Judging from the number of articles mention the band's name and fresh awards in the country cheap lady antebellum tickets music blog world, it appear that the band has won the support and high opinion of critics and fans alike.
