Lady Antebellum brings ‘Need You Now 2010 Tour’ to Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — After selling out headlining concerts in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville, ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year Lady Antebellum will bring their “Need You Now 2010 Tour” to Purdue University’s Elliott Hall of Music in West Lafayette at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7 with special guest MCA Nashville artist David Nail.

NEED YOU NOW is the title of Lady Antebellum’s second album, lifted from its leadoff track, which explores the desperate longings that make separated lovers yearn to reconnect in the wee small hours of the morning.

“I feel like we were just writing songs for our very first show at this small club in Nashville,” said Hillary Scott. “I can remember being so nervous to perform in front of just a handful of people that night and to think now we’re beginning to headline our very own tour is unbelievable. We have our fans to thank for following us every step of the way and can’t wait to show them what we’ve worked up!”

The Hollywood Reporter stated of the group’s momentum, “In only a few short years, country trio Lady Antebellum has risen from obscurity to superstardom. The group is attracting the sort of rabid fandom that clearly signals they’re no flash in the pan.”

The Grammy Award winning trio’s double platinum album “Need You Now” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and has already spawned the multi-week No. 1 smash hits “Need You Now” and “American Honey.” On the heels of three consecutive No. 1 songs in just eight months for a total of eight weeks at the summit, Lady A’s new single “Our Kind Of Love” is already racing up the charts.

Lady Antebellum first took country music by storm in 2008 with the release of their self-titled platinum certified debut album, which generated the hits “Love Don’t Live Here,” “Lookin’ For A Good Time” and their No. 1 hit “I Run To You.”
