Lady Antebellum

When: Fri., June 1 2012

Is there a hotter country band these days than Lady Antebellum? The Nashville trio collected a truckload of awards (Grammys, CMAs, whatever else you want to give them) for 2010's mega-popular Need You Now. Last year's Own the Night, their third album, easily debuted at No. 1. It's easy to hear, and see, why people love them so much. Charles Kelly, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood are attractive musicians making attractive music. Kelly and Scott’s dual vocals radiate soft-focused warmth, while their smooth, melodic tunes dip their toes into the country and pop pools without causing too many waves. It’s music that both the blue and red states can agree on. Where they go from here is totally up to them. They may just continue down the comfy middle-of-the-road path they've been traveling or head for more ambitious projects down the way. Right now, they seem more than happy to turn out easy-on-the-ear and lightly twangy country-pop about booty calls and other late-night hookups. With Darius Rucker and Thompson Square. 7 p.m. Tickets: $29.50 - $59. – Michael Berick
