Lady Antebellum At Grand Ole Opry
Lady Antebellum is a country pop group that found their success in 2006 in the country music capitol, Nashville. The group is composed of trio: Hillary Scott (vocals), Charles Kelley (vocals), and Dave Haywood (vocals, guitar, piano, and mandolin).
It all started when Kelley convinced his middle-school classmate and friend, Haywood, to relocate to Nashville in 2005 to pursue a career in music. Kelley’s brother, Josh, was a successful pop and country artist and Charles yearned for his success. When Kelley met Scott at a Nashville music club, the duo became a trio and adopted the name, Lady Antebellum.
The group immediately began writing together and performing in Nashville clubs until they signed a Capitol Records contract in 2007. The debut single, “Love Don’t Live Here,” rocketed to No. 3 on the Hot Country Songs Chart and solidified a success story for the country trio. In 2008, they released their self-titled debut album, which became the first album by a new group to debut at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums Chart. It was obvious from the beginning that this young trio was destined for country greatness.
In 2009, they released Need You Now with the No. 1 chart-topping hits, “American Honey,” “Our Kind of Love,” and “Need You Now.” The album sold more than 5 million copies worldwide proving that the trio had definitely rocketed to success. Most recently, Lady Antebellum released Own the Night, the trio wrote 10 of the 11 songs together.
Lady Antebellum has won seven Grammy Awards, a total of 38 awards from other associations, and released 4 albums and 6 No. 1 singles. They debuted on the Grand Ole Opry stage on June 28, 2007.
