Lady Antebellum Deliver Live Cover of Aerosmith’s ‘Sweet Emotion’
Lady Antebellum are always talking about their eclectic musical tastes, and they often share their love for all types of music with their fans. In the past, the trio has covered pop songs like Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream‘ and Prince’s ‘Kiss.‘ However, at their show in Syracuse, N.Y. recently, Lady A took their fans back to 1975 with a pulse-pounding live rendition of Aerosmith‘s ‘Sweet Emotion.’
After they finished singing their sweet, romantic track ‘Just a Kiss,’ Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood kicked it into high gear with a cover of the Aerosmith classic. Kelley said a few words into the mic before urging everyone to “sing along with us,” as the distinctive, building guitar notes to ‘Sweet Emotion’ played in the background. The trio sang along during the climbing chorus, before Kelley took lead vocals with Haywood doing his best Joe Perry as he ripped it on guitar.
Haywood’s guitar skills were so impressive during the song, Hillary Scott even gazed at him in awe and exclaimed “I love you!” Haywood may play country, but he was all rock star during the ‘Sweet Emotion’ encore. Scott and Kelley rocked out as well, getting the crowd psyched as they both did their best to replicate Steven Tyler’s vocals.
What a way to end a show! Lady A killed it on this cover, proving that they’re a little bit country, and a little bit rock and roll.
