AOL: While 'American Honey' was burning up the country charts, pop radio caught on to 'Need You Now.' When you were writing that song, did you intend for it to have crossover appeal?
Charles Kelley: I don't think so. When we were choosing songs for the record, we just had a really rough demo of it -- just acoustic and vocals. We hadn't worked out all the harmonies yet ... We had no idea what we had on our hands. So the fact that pop radio is embracing it -- even though we had no intentions of that -- it's exciting to reach a broader audience.
AOL: We heard y'all have had fun watching YouTube videos of fans performing the song, in lots of different genres!
Hillary Scott: There was this one guy who played the saxophone, which was really cool. I was blown away, no pun intended!
Charles: It's always fun to see little kids singing it, too. Especially the "I'm a little drunk" [line]. I always get the biggest kick out of it. It's my guilty pleasure. My wife thinks I'm a narcissist, but I just think it's hilarious going on YouTube and seeing these covers. There are so many of them -- literally hundreds! It's flattering.
