Lady A’s Road to Success
Who says you can't go home? The members of Lady Antebellum returned to Augusta, Ga., today (Nov. 15) for a sold-out show at James Brown Arena and had a street named in their honor to boot.
The homecoming of Lakeside High School graduates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood was the theme of the day as officials presented the band with keys to the city and ceremonially renamed a downtown street Lady Antebellum Way.
A planned park in Columbia County, Ga., will feature a Lady Antebellum Pavilion, officials also announced.
"I've got to say we owe so much to the community. It's always been so supportive of us," Dave said before the band played "Need You Now" at a three-song lunchtime concert at Bell Auditorium. "Wherever we go, we take Augusta, Georgia with us."
The trio, which also includes Nashvillian Hillary Scott, scored two Country Music Association Awards last week: Single of the Year for "Need You Now" and Vocal Group.
