Seven-Time Grammy Award-Winning Trio Lady Antebellum To Bring Take Me Downtown Tour to Hard Rock Live on Friday, May 16
Tickets on Sale Friday, February 21, at 10 a.m.
Hollywood, Fla. (February 18, 2014) – Seven-time Grammy award-winning trio Lady Antebellum will bring their North American "Take Me Downtown Tour" to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 21, at 10 a.m.
Since its 2006 inception, the harmony-based trio - Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood - had risen quickly to become Country Music's most influential current group. Lady Antebellum won the Vocal Group of the Year honor from both the Country Music Association and from the Academy of Country Music three times in a row. Eight of the band's singles went gold, with four – "American Honey," "Need You Now," "Just A Kiss" and "I Run To You" – surpassing the platinum mark. "Need You Now" went on to sell over seven million downloads, according to the RIAA. Additionally, "Need You Now" claimed five of the trio's seven career Grammy wins in 2011, including the all-genre Record and Song of the Year.
All of that was achieved through a fragile balance of several key pieces, each of which helps define Lady Antebellum's sound: ingratiating melodies, the interplay between Kelley's soulful male resonance and Scott's scintillating female texture, the threesome's bittersweet harmonic blend, and production elements that invariably emphasize the stylistic inclusiveness of modern country.
That sound catapulted Lady A to an enviable level of popularity. The band picked up an audience beyond the typical Country core listener, it hit the road playing arenas and stadiums, and the group performed on all the major television shows, including Saturday Night Live, Oprah, the Grammys, The Voice, and most every other daytime and late night program on network television.
