Biography

Lady Antebellum is an American country music group formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. The trio is composed of Hillary Scott (lead vocals), Charles Kelley (lead vocals) and Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin).

The group made their debut in 2007 as guest vocalists on Jim Brickman's single "Never Alone", before signing to Capitol Records Nashville and releasing "Love Don't Live Here". The song peaked at Number 3 on the Hot Country Songs chart in May 2008, and served as the first single to the group's self-titled debut album.

Certified platinum in the U.S., the album also included the two singles "Lookin' for a Good Time" and "I Run to You", the latter of which became the group's first Number One in July 2009. "Need You Now" was released in August 2009 and was the first single from the band's new album released in January 2010; it was also the group's second number one single. "American Honey", the second single from Need You Now, was released in January 2010, and became their 4th Top 10 single, as well as their third No. 1 hit. "Our Kind of Love", the album's third single, was released in May 2010, and became their fourth consecutive Number One on the Hot Country Songs chart. Their third album Own the Night was released in September 2011.
