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.
