Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum's star has risen in an unparalleled way over the last half-decade; conquering both the country and pop-music worlds, the trio's three records have garnered Grammy, Billboard and CMA nominations and awards along the way. All three members — Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott — pen and contribute vocally to the group's glossy pop-country sound. A spin on American Idol last year solidified the trio's appeal, leading to exposure to a whole new audience for 2011's Own the Night. Lady Antebellum channels Fleetwood Mac with genre-crossing hits like 2010's "Need You Now" and last year's "Just a Kiss" while still carrying a sound as uniquely Southern as the architectural style the band was named after.
