Over the years, Lady Antebellum has become one of the most popular groups in country music. But at the end of 2008, the group still didn't have a number one hit. 

That all changed with the release of their single "I Run To You" on January 26, 2009. Written by members Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood along Tom Douglas, the song became the trio's first number one hit after a six month climb up the charts. 

Lady A went on to win the CMA Single of the Year Award for the song, and also won a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. 

During the song, lead singers Scott and Kelley serve as the narrators, singing about all of the horrible things in the world such as hate and prejudice. As the narrators "run" from these things, they find themselves running into the arms of one another, saying "our love's the only truth/that's why I run to you."

Overall, the message of the song is that love is powerful, and can make the world a better place. With such a strong message, it's no wonder the song was a mega-hit for the group.

You can watch the music video for the song below.

Since the release of "I Run To You," Lady A has gone on to have many more number one hits, but we'll always have a special place in our hearts for their very first!

LYRICS BELOW

I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That's when I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin' right on through
And our love's the only truth
That's why I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you
