Lady Antebellum Feel ‘Faint’ Over Neil Young Tribute Concert
Lady Antebellum are among the acts performing at a tribute concert honoring Neil Young as the 2010 MusiCares Person of the Year. The event's lineup of musical talent has Lady A giggling like starstruck teenagers. "I'm so excited about that," Charles Kelley tells The Boot, turning to his bandmates and adding, "I was thinking about that, guys ... We need to rehearse! We're going to sing a song, 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart.' It's gonna be really exciting for us. I mean the lineup, too, that night ...."
"I saw Elton John [on the list] and fainted!" a beaming Hillary Scott interjects.
The event, which takes place Jan. 29 in Los Angeles, will also feature such artists as Jackson Browne, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, John Mellencamp, Josh Groban (another of Hillary's favorites), Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Taylor and Patty Griffin. So, with that kind of lineup, Charles asks, "How in the world we got the invite, I don't know. Maybe good management?"
We think it has to do with their amazing talent and possibly their two Grammy nominations for Best Country Performance by a Group or Duo and Best Country Song for 'I Run to You.'
