Congratulations all around…Lady Antebellum and Jeff Foxworthy are the newest members of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame!
The announcement was made on Friday, and the trio will officially be welcomed in on October 11th.
Both Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley are natives of the Peach State, but bandmate Hillary Scott was born in Tennessee. Normally, that might cause an issue for these two fiercely rival states, but Haywood points out that, as far as they’re all concerned, Hillary is an honorary Georgian. “She’s spent a lot of time there in Atlanta and Athens”, said Haywood. “We’ve shown her the Georgia Theatre and Eddie’s Attic.”
He went on to say how honored the band is. “We’ve never been a part of something like this before,” he said. “It’s pretty special hearing the words ‘Lady Antebellum’ and ‘hall of fame’ in the same sentence. We really feel honored to be included.”
