Lady Antebellum Go From ‘Just a Kiss’ to Prince’s ‘Kiss’ at the 2011 CMT Music Awards
Sara Evans and Sheryl Crow had the pleasure of introducing Lady Antebellum, who gave a spot-on delivery of their latest single, ‘Just a Kiss,’ after pocketing Group Video of the Year on the 2011 CMT Music Awards. But the fun didn’t stop there — the trio came packing with a two-for-one, and also rocked Prince’s ‘Kiss.’
Frontlady Hillary Scott appeared sleek and stylish in black while her duet partner, Charles Kelley, maintained a more casual jeans and T-shirt look in the ambient mood lighting. Their ‘Just a Kiss’ number was nothing short of perfect, but fans everywhere were delighted when the song ended, because Lady A’s stage show did not.
With Kelley now at the drums and Scott in a bright purple jacket, the 2011 CMT Music Awards went straight from country to country awesome within the first few notes of Prince’s ‘Kiss.’ Dave Haywood offered backup vocals while the pretty and pretty confident Ms. Scott strutted her stuff across the huge Bridgestone Arena stage.
The trio left nothing else to be desired, with all of the flashing lights, choreographed moves and high-pitched notes of a real-live Prince show. And that, friends and country fans, is why Lady A are the ‘it’ country band of 2010, 2011 and counting.
