Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum talks about the origin of trio’s unusual name. “We knew when we came up with this name that we’d have to explain it everyday for the rest of our lives. We were taking some photos one day in front of some old ‘antebellum’ style houses in Nashville, and that word came out and it just kinda stuck. The word has a nostalgic feel to it, and in a weird way we felt that reflected our sound and what we were going for.”
Lady Antebellum will take the stage at the Grand Ole Opry,on Saturday February 21st. They will also make a special Opry Shop in-store appearance before the show. The trio will be available to sign autographs in the shop from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
