Thursday, August 7, 2014
– Lady Antebellum and Jeff Foxworthy will enter the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on Oct. 11 at Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center.
Other 2014 Inductees include Danny Beard of Georgia Satellites fame, Francine Reed, who has sung with Lyle Lovett for many years, Ed Roland and Wet Willie.
"We've never been a part of something like this before," said Lady A's Dave Haywood, who is 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."
Lady A's new single, "Bartender," is high on the country charts. The track serves as the lead single off their upcoming fifth album, "747," out Sept. 30.
