    For once I actually really like this year’s entry, which is surprising considering how much I hated Lady Antebellum’s last single (“Run To You”). In fact, it may be the ONLY song on country radio currently that I like. I bought about 10 new songs on iTunes a couple of days ago, and “Need You Now” was the only country one.

    The 49,59,69 and 79 entries are classics. Can’t say the same for 89 & 99 although both are okay. I do like the 2009 entry

    I admit I quite like Need You Now too, although it doesn’t sound very country to me.
