Band Name Stories: Lady Antebellum

Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood first performed as Lady Antebellum in 2006. The name originated at a publicity shoot where they used a pre-Civil War Southern mansion for a scenic backdrop. Although they were aware that having both male and female lead vocals on their songs might confuse those who thought Lady Antebellum would be a girl group, Haywood told USA Today, “That was partly why we thought it was cool.”
