Lady Antebellum, a trio made up of Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott, have MySpace to thank for their success. Kelley and Scott initially “met” on the social media site, but when they connected in person and added Kelley’s childhood friend Haywood into the mix, they instantly realized they had tapped into something extraordinary. The threesome made their recording debut as guest vocalists on Jim Brickman’s 2007 single “Never Alone;” their solo debut came later that year with their own single, “Love Don’t Live Here.” Lady A were successful from the start, but things really took off with their second album, ‘Need You Now,’ and its title single, both of which won many awards, went platinum multiple times and helped earn the band a legion of fans across multiple genres. The disc was the best-selling country album, as well as the third best-selling album overall, of 2010. Music runs in the band’s blood: Kelley’s other brother Josh is also a successful artist, and Scott is the daughter of country singer Linda Davis.
Founding Date: 2006
Did You Know ...: Haywood's father is a famous dentist. He invented the nightguard teeth-whitening method.
Lady Antebellum's "Hello World" -- the fourth single from their Need You Now album -- is a song that literally took years to write. As songwriter David Lee explains to The Boot, he began the tune years and years ago, but it wasn't until he linked up with fellow tunesmiths Tom Douglas and Tony Lane that "Hello World" became the song it is.
Summertime: The days are bright, the nights are warm, and the water is beckoning with its waves. Millions of Americans go on vacation, cool off in a pool or pitch a tent during the summer, but how do country stars soak up the summer months?
Lady Antebellum will be crossing genres with their next collaboration. The trio, made up of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, is working with Audien, an EDM DJ and producer, on a brand-new tune, "Something Better."
