Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt ‘Walk This Way’ [Watch]
“We’re really going to try to find some cool moments in the show to bring [opening acts Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt] back up," Charles Kelley tells Rolling Stone Country. We’ve always said it, the night is not just about us … it’s a whole thing. I want people to be in their seats right when it starts, and I know they will be because we’ve got Sam Hunt! He’s kicking ass right now. I just want to create moments that are really unique from our other shows.”
Don't worry, fans that come out to the shows are still getting a heavy-dose of country, but the artists are just trying to shake things up a bit and "finding the perfect setlist for the perfect crowd," says bandmember Dave Haywood.
The Wheels Up tour kicked off its North American trek last month. As seen by the above video shot at Jones Beach in Wantagh, N.Y, the crowd sure gets fired up by the classic rock tune. The song gives every member of the tour a chance to showcase their talents, with Hayes playing lead-guitar and Hunt providing vocals alongside the trio.
"We want to showcase what we all do well. I think it will be cross-genre songs, and who knows what we’ll come up with!” Hilary Scott said before the tour began.
Now that Steven Tyler has joined the country genre family, maybe we'll all get lucky and see him up on stage with the whole gang one day!
