Surprise, surprise, it's Lady A
Monday, September 29, 2014
– Lady Antebellum launched 7FOR7 today, a week-long campaign where the band travels across the country to surprise and fulfill seven wishes for seven fans in seven days. The promotional effort precedes the release of their fifth studio album "747," which drops Tuesday.
This morning, Lady A popped up in Miami on their way to New York City and surprised South Miami Elementary Expressive Arts Center teacher Vivian Gonzales. The trio snuck into the music teacher's classroom and surprised her with an instrument donation for the school with the help of friends at Little Kids Rock.
Lady A also invited Gonzales and her husband on an all-expense paid vacation to New York City tomorrow to attend the group's album release show at Gramercy Theatre. Gonzales was nominated by her husband who describes her as a "a great wife, an amazing mom and a phenomenal music teacher" who "spends her days, nights and weekends coming up with lessons to engage every student she has in the world of music and change their lives forever."

Lady Antebellum may cause you to throw out many of your country music principles. They don't sing and play traditional country music, for starters. They're not cool like more rocking Americana artists. In fact, they're huge mainstream country stars. So, why are some of us still suckers for their sound? And why does the new "Heart Break" sound so good on the ears? Well, it's simple, but complicated.
Hillary Scott is simply a wonderfully sincere singer. ...
Six albums into its career, Lady Antebellum pretty much has the formula down pat. Either Hillary Scott or long and lanky Charles Kelley assumes lead vocals with Dave Haywood also providing vocals plus guitars and mandolin in a bunch of songs easy on the ears with a story often involving a lust for love.
The typical song ("Lie With Me," for example) starts with Kelly or Scott taking a stanza, followed by the other with both then tackling the chorus together. This has worked quite well ...
