About Lady A
Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood created Lady Antebellum in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. Hillary Scott's mother is Linda Davis, while Charles Kelley is the brother of Josh Kelley, giving the band a strong pedigree in the world of country music. The group was quickly signed up by Capitol Records Nashville and released their eponymously titled first album in 2008, which shot straight to the top of the Billboard Country charts. The band was named as Best New Artist at the prestigious Country Music Association Awards the same year.
The group quickly gained recognition for their songwriting skills and vocal harmonies which have seen them cross over from a country music audience to the mainstream pop charts on several occasions. Their second album, Need You Now, spawned what is probably their best-known single hit, also called Need You Now, which topped the charts in several countries. The album went platinum and Lady Antebellum scooped numerous awards including Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 2011 Grammys.
Their unique vocal sound has led to the members of Lady Antebellum receiving numerous awards throughout their career to date. For three years running they were awarded the title of Vocal Group of the year from the Country Music Association and also from the Academy of Country Music. Their third album, Own the Night, was released in late 2011 and was another Grammy-Award winner, scooping the title of Best Country Album. The top-selling single from the album was Just a Kiss, which also made it into the mainstream charts in addition to providing Lady Antebellum with their fastest-selling single to date. On This Winter's Night is an album of seasonal songs released in the autumn of 2012, which was followed by Golden in 2013.
Lady Antebellum has headlined two major tours, the Need You Now tour of 2010 and the Own The Night tour of 2011. In addition the band has supported other artists on tour including Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Martina McBride. In 2011 the band joined Keith Urban for the Australian leg of his Get Closer tour.
The band members see touring as an opportune time to write songs together, often jamming with the other musicians in order to harness the creativity that comes with so many skilled players together in one room. The band has also been experimenting with performing songs written by songwriters outside the group in order to maintain freshness in the sound.
