YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR Embarks Overseas Next Month
NASHVILLE, TN – Sep. 9, 2017 – Current two-time CMA nominee Lady Antebellum closed out the North American leg of their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR tonight in front of a packed hometown crowd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Kicking off with two of Country’s hottest 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 (Capitol Records Nashville).
“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.”
With an incomparable welcome to the stage from their dominant horn section, Lady A 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 with their “buoyant” (Billboard) hit “You Look Good,” the augmented horn section includedstudents from Nashville School of the Arts. With a memorable dedication to Don Williams and Troy Gentry, the multi-PLATINUM group 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.”
As one of Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone’s “must-see summer tour” comes to an end in North America, Lady Antebellum will prove they’re “back, with all the hit” (Chicago Tribune) overseas in October.

“The energy and the genre-crossing elements of the new music set the stage for the group’s biggest production yet.” – Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazzette
“A fast-paced concert that introduced some of their promising new hits and reminded the audience why they’ve remained a powerhouse for the past decade.” – The Sun Chronicle
“The trumpet and trombone gave a new flavor to old tunes such as ‘ owntown,’ making the melody feel updated and familiar at the same time. Horns are a sound most haven’t heard in country music in quite a long time, and it helped the hit-making trio’s show stand out.” – Omaha World-Herald
“Lady Antebellum wows devoted country fans.” – The Plain Dealer
“The group is as energized as at any point in Lady Antebellum’s 10-year career.” – The Sacramento Bee
“It’s a fine line between playing too much unfamiliar material and not enough of the new stuff, but Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood walk it with perfection.” – St. Louis Dispatch
