"What If I Never Get Over You" is a song written by Ryan Hurd, Sam Ellis, Laura Veltz, and Jon Green, and recorded by American country music trio Lady Antebellum. It was released to country radio on May 17, 2019 and serves as Lady Antebellum's first single on BMLG Records after signing with the label in August 2018.[1][2] The song serves as the lead single for the group's forthcoming eighth studio album, Ocean.[3]

Contents Background

"What If I Never Get Over You" was written by singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd with Sam Ellis, Laura Veltz, and Jon Green for Universal Music Publishing Nashville.[4] The track was written to depict the "portrait of perpetual, never-ending heartbreak" Hurd imagined he would feel if he were to separate from his wife, fellow singer Maren Morris. During the development process, Veltz proposed grafting the word "what" onto the beginning of the hook and title to reflect the song's open-endedness.[4] Originally sung by Hurd as a solo male demo, the song was pitched to Lady Antebellum by one of BMLG Records's senior A&R executives and adapted to a male-female duet. The group worked with producer Dann Huff for the track and recorded it on March 4, 2019 at Starstruck Recording Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.[4]

Critical reception

Billy Dukes of Taste of Country wrote that the song opens a "new, more personal and revealing chapter" in the band's discography, adding that the song's production leads to a "slow rise of emotions" and enjoyable "tension" between the singers.[5] Chris Parton of Sounds Like Nashville wrote that the song represents a return to the "rich, smooth sound" of the group's earlier hits.[6] Both publications, as well as Rolling Stone and The Tennessean, remarked favorably upon the song's thematic and sonic similarities to Lady Antebellum's 2009 breakout hits "I Run to You" and "Need You Now", with Cindy Watts writing for the latter that, "fans can hear the difference – and the familiarity – on Lady Antebellum's new single."[5][6][7][8]

Commercial performance

"What If I Never Get Over You" debuted at number 14 on the Hot Country Songs chart following its release.[4] The song has since reached a peak position of 12.[9] On the Country Airplay chart, the song debuted at number 25 and has since peaked at number 13.[10][11] "What If I Never Get Over You" has sold 96,000 copies in the United States as of November 2019.[12]

Music video

An accompanying music video directed by Sarah McColgan premiered alongside the song's release on May 17, 2019.[1] The clip follows the story of a woman moving out of a shared home with her now ex-boyfriend with intercut scenes of the former relationship and the woman attempting to move on with a new man.
