The members of the group Lady A, which was formerly known as Lady Antebellum, are speaking out about the name change and why it took so long to drop “antebellum.”
Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, and Charles Kelley made an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show on Monday (December 21) and they discussed the name change, six months after they decided to do it.
“The heart of our decision still rings true today as much as it did back in June when we made this announcement,” Hillary said. “I mean, we want our music, and our live shows and, you know, anything that we’re a part of, for everyone to feel welcome and invited. And we realized, you know, over the summer I think not touring and watching just this movement happen that is so needed in this country and around the world, we started to see what our part was, what part of our first steps and making a difference could be. And so our name changing was the first step…but you never know how things are going to happen and we never saw that coming.”
