Lady Antebellum to Be Inducted Into Georgia Music Hall of Fame
Lady Antebellum may be Tennessee locals, but they’re about to find a new home in Georgia. The award-winning trio will be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame this October.
The trio are to be honored with the Performer Award and will be one of about a dozen other inductees, including Danny Beard, Jeff Foxworthy (receiving the Spoken Word Award for his work as a comedian) and Francine Reed. Past inductees include country favorites like Sugarland, Patty Loveless and Alan Jackson.
“We’ve never been a part of something like this before,” says Dave Haywood, who is originally a Georgia native. “It’s pretty special hearing the words ‘Lady Antebellum’ and ‘hall of fame’ in the same sentence. We really feel honored to be included.”
To say that it’s going to be a good Fall for Haywood and bandmates Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott is an understatement. The group will be honored during the 36th Annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame Awards on Oct. 11, just a few weeks after their fifth studio album, 747, lands in stores on Sept. 30.
