In 2006 Charles Kelley (lead & background vocals), Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin) and Hilary Scott (lead and background vocals) came together and a rich tapestry of family connections and music industry ties was formed. Scott is the daughter of country music singer and GRAMMY winner Linda Davis and Charles Kelley is the brother of artist Josh Kelley. Trying to become a successful solo country artist, Kelley convinced his old school friend, Haywood, to move to Nashville so they could write music together. Not long after this, Scott recognised Kelley from MySpace and following conversations was consequently invited to write songs together. Just a few months later Lady Antebellum was formed, and the trio performed live for the first time together at a Nashville club. Lady A had no idea at the time that those very first songs written together would eventually take them to sold out arenas around the world.
