Lady Antebellum got its start in 2006 in Nashville. Not unlike Nickel Creek, the band is a harmony-laden trio with Charles Kelley (lead and background vocals), Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin) and Hillary Scott (lead and background vocals).
The group's first outing was as background vocalists on Jim Brickman's single "Never Alone" in 2007. Capitol Records saw the writing on the wall and signed them up. The first official Lady Antebellum single, "Love Don't Live Here," wasted no time climbing the country charts, all the way to number three.
Two more solid singles -- "Lookin' for a Good Time" and "I Run to You," which topped the charts �€“ helped the band's 2008 self-titled debut achieve platinum
