Lady Antebellum Score Sweet Football Gig
Lady Antebellum will showcase their powerful three-part harmony in front of millions of football fans, not once but twice over the next few weeks! The reigning CMA Group of the Year will sing the national anthem at the beginning of the Tennessee Titans game against the St. Louis Rams this Sunday, Dec. 13.
The three-time Grammy nominees will also perform the anthem for the Sugar Bowl game on Jan. 1 in New Orleans, when the Cincinnati Bearcats take on the Florida Gators. After the Rose Bowl, the Sugar Bowl is the oldest college bowl game in football.
"It wouldn't feel like the holidays without football," says Lady A's Charles Kelley."We love being part of the opening ceremonies of some of these big games because there's so much energy in the stadium. You look out and see the players and fans, and then hear the planes flying over and the fireworks shooting off ... I get chills every time ... it's a total adrenaline rush!"
While in New Orleans, the trio will ring in the new year in the famed French Quarter, headlining the 'Allstate Fan Fest' concert, which will also feature a performance by alt-rock group, the Gin Blossoms.
The trio, whose single 'I Need You Now' recently topped the charts, will have just a few weeks to rest after ringing in 2010, then they'll hit the road with Tim McGraw as opening act for his Southern Voice tour, joined by the Lost Trailers for the first half of the run, and Love and Theft for the second.
