How did Lady Antebellum get their name?


Lady Antebellum got their name after doing a publicity shoot in front of a pre-Civil War mansion. The word "antebellum" is an adjective, and it's definition, according to, is "before or existing before a war, especially the American Civil War." The group liked the fact the name would lead people to believe that the band was a girl group, but then they would hear both female and male vocals.

The group, comprised of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006 after Kelley and Haywood met Scott at a popular music bar and began helping her write tracks for her solo album. Once they performed together, they formed their band, Lady Antebellum.

Just one year after forming, they were signed by Capitol Records and began recording their debut album. Two months after signing with the label, they released the single, "Love Don't Live Here," which climbed to number three on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart. Their self-titled debut album was released in April 2008 and became the first country album by a new group to reach number one on Billboard's Top Country Album chart. Their latest album, "Golden," released in 2013, earned the group's third number one album spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
