Lady Antebellum’s Hello World video, the fourth single from their smash album, Need You Now, was filmed in Nashville and directed by Roman White.
David Lee, who co-wrote the song with Tom Douglas and Tony Lane, explained the song to The Boot: “The idea for this song is an old one. “It was originally called, ‘Hello Heart.’ I started it when I was 27 years old … a long time ago. I’m 42 now! (laughs) I wrote a chorus and pretty much most of the song a different way. And then I put it down, turned away from it, and didn’t think of it again for at least 10 years. I got with Tony Lane, and we sat down and talked about it one day. We tried to write it, tried to come up with some ideas and finally came up with the chorus. But the rhymes weren’t jelling. Then we got Tom Douglas in on it. Together, Tom and Tony helped to turn this into something that made it a great song.”
