Lady A At the Ryman

Check out these awesome pictures Sandi took at the Lady Antebellum show at the Ryman Auditorium. The one of them at the piano is definitely my favorite!

We saw them on the second night of their two night run. Unlike most shows I go to, where I'm in a section full of people I know from Music Row, this show I was smack in the middle of a family reunion. Hillary's grandparents were there, her mom was running around playing social butterfly, I know Charles and Dave both had a ton of friends and family there too. They played about an hour. My favorite song off the new album is still "Perfect Day." It's in contention to be the next single.

The after party was the most productive schmooze fest I've been to in ages. Spent time talking music with the Capitol promo guys, whom I love. Introduced Sandi to Hillary, Charles, & Dave. Got to catch up with Charles' wife, whom I hadn't seen in a couple of months. (They had 7 people staying at their house, including Charles' brother Josh who slept on the floor! LOL) Had a very lengthy conversation about new music with Mike Dungan, where I continued my campaign for "All I Want" to be the next Darius Rucker single. (I'm gonna lose that one, but I am still waving the flag.) And I stood and giggled as Sandi and Bob Doyle chatted about Vegas.

Those of you who are new to the Lady A bandwagon due to their recent crossover explosion, do yourself a favor and go buy their first album.

I so want to see them live, but the only appearance they are making in the area is opening for Tim McGraw at the Comcast Center, which are two reasons why I won't be seeing them this time around. I'm just going to have to settle for seeing them in June.
