Three weeks ago, Lady Antebellum began a contest offering fans a chance to have a private concert at their prom this spring. After “carefully” reviewing each submission, the trio unanimously chose the community of Henryville, Indiana, “for their story, resilience and unity following devastating tornados earlier this month,” the group said. Due to a previously scheduled commitment, the trio won’t be able to make Henryville High School’s scheduled prom. Lady A instead decided to throw a bigger event on May 16th for the school’s juniors and seniors followed by a benefit for the community.
Lady Antebellum will open for Bruce Springsteen on July 14th for a sold out concert at Hyde Park as part of this year’s Hard Rock Calling festival in London. “It’s Springsteen…there is no entertainer we look up to more than him,” said Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “I’m going to be like a little kid at Christmas watching his show.”
