Lady Antebellum Wraps the US Leg of Heartbreak Tour in Nashville
One of my favorite hometown bands, Lady Antebellum closed out the North American leg of their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR Saturday night in front of a packed crowd at Bridgestone Arena. Kicking off with rising stars Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young, Music City was on their feet for more than four hours of jam-packed music including Lady A’s biggest chart-topping hits and new favorites off their CMA "Album of the Year" nominated No. One album, HEART BREAK.
“Without getting too nostalgic, this is a dream come true for us to close out this tour in Nashville,” said Charles Kelley. “For over ten years we have walked this journey with everyone here tonight and we couldn’t feel more blessed. Thank you to everyone who helped us make this tour the most unforgettable journey yet."
It was an emotional homecoming and unforgettable night indeed.
The trio launched into the night with their chart-topping hits along with “This City” as the stage was illuminated by a bright Nashville marquee. Continuing the momentum wit hit “You Look Good,” the augmented horn section included students from Nashville School of the Arts. With a memorable dedication to Don Williams and Troy Gentry, they offered up a stripped down melody of Hillary Scott & The Scott Family’s Grammy award-winning No. One hit “Thy Will,” that swiftly led into Kelley’s critically acclaimed track “Leaving Nashville.”
Scott invited Ballerini back to the stage one last time for a sizzling cover of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” while Young joined Kelley and Haywood for a spin on Tim McGraw’s song “Something Like That.” With a deafening crowd chanting for more, Lady A returned to the stage to close out the night with their No. One hit “Bartender” and Grammy-winning smash “Need You Now.”
One of the most entertaining shows I've seen all year from one of my favorite bands in Nashville. Make sure to give Heart Break a listen, and if you're on the other side of the pond, catch a date of the You Look Good World Tour.
