Lady Antebellum "American Honey" Guitar Chords and lyrics

Once again, in the search to find good new songs which are suitable for the early learning guitar player, I'm faced with a fairly barren landscape of new rock, rock/pop, singer-songwriter etc. material, so am checking out some genres I might have previously have bypassed - you will have noticed a few electro/techno/pop songs recently!

Lady Antebellum are a roots country music group, as you might expect coming from Nashville, Tennessee. What impressed me about this song was the purity of the vocals and harmonies, Hilary Scott having one of the sweetest country voices I've ever heard.

They released their first album, the eponymous "Lady Antebellum" in 2008, which featured the US Number one single "I run to you" ( this one completely passed me by, but I will most probably post it in the future )

"American Honey" is taken from their second and latest album "Need You now" which reached #1 in the US top 40 album charts, and gave Lady Antebellum their third consecutive #1 single in the USA Billboard charts.

The chords for the song are very playable, with the verse, chorus and bridge containing C, Am, F and Dm, G and Em.

It's a song with great opportunities for vocal harmonies, so while you can play it solo, it's one of those songs which will go down well at a jam session, where the other members can lift the song with the harmonies on the chorus.

I've uploaded my chords version of "American Honey" to my Pop songs chords page, you can find it at the link below:
