Lady A-Thompson Square Party

| April 21, 2012

Lady Antebellum’s Own The Night World Tour has been traveling around the country all year.  Joining them are Darius Rucker and Thompson Square.  So when T-2 picked up the Vocal Duo of the Year award from the Academy of Country Music, Lady A wanted to celebrate.  Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton was with the tour in Kansas City for the party.  Lon got the story from Hillary:  “We’ve been touring for a few months now, and had a chance to get to know Keifer and Shawna, and their huge win at the ACMs!  We were so proud of them and excited.  They deserve this award and we just wanted to present them with this cake, and it had their red carpet picture on it, and we just surprised them.  It was awesome.  It was fun!”

There’s only one “lady” in Lady Antebellum, but there’s another woman on their tour, with Shawna of Thompson Square.  Hillary told Lon she’s been enjoying some female company on the tour: “We were up in Canada and I had a little morning shopping trip, and I ended up finding this dress that looked perfect for Shawna, and I bought it for her as a gift.  She ended up wearing it on stage that night, and I was so excited, it was the highlight of the night for me, it was like, ‘Yes, it fit!’ because I had no clue, I just guessed.  Then my birthday was the ACMs, the day of the ACMs, and she got me the most beautiful earrings, and I told her ‘We could be each other’s stylists!’ It’s awesome, but it’s great for me to have another girl on the road that I click with.  She’s such a sweet girl.”
