Lady A Hits The Stage With Rock Legend
Lady Antebellum is hitting the stage this week with rock legend Stevie Nicks for a CMT Crossroads special. The show will air later this year. But I can hear you saying, "How did they hook up with each other"? Lady A’s Hillary Scott says it was the legendary singer’s idea. “The way that this all came about is going to be in the show, because it’s a really cool story that we’re gonna sit down and let her tell how it all came about, because it wasn’t her management calling our management or CMT trying to call each of us, because they had the idea,” says Hillary. “This was her idea, and the way it came about was very organic and beautiful and I’m gonna let her tell that story, so you’ll have to watch it to hear the story.”
Downtown Is A Hit!
Lady A has more great news to celebrate. Their new song "Downtown" is the highest debuting song of their seven year career. It hit a high of 25 on the Billboard chart and 34 on Mediabase. The band debuted the song on the Jay Leno show on NBC January 28th.

It’s a blessing.” His new album "Set You Free" is in stores and online now.
