LADY ANTEBELLUM AND FANS OWN THE NIGHT TO RAISE OVER $285,000 FOR TORNADO RAVAGED HENRYVILLE, IN

Nashville,
TN – May 16, 2012 – Seven-time GRAMMY winning trio Lady Antebellum and
thousands of generous fans joined together at Louisville, KY’s KFC Yum!
Center tonight to raise more than $285,000 for the Henryville, IN
community.  All proceeds will be distributed through the New
Hope/Indiana Bankers Association for the Disaster Relief Fund.
The
group hosted a private prom event with Henryville High School’s Juniors
and Seniors where they surprised the students a with an acoustic
performance, which was followed by an arena concert open to the public.

“This
event started as an idea we had in the studio last year to crash
someone’s prom,” explains Lady A’s Hillary Scott.  “We had no idea at
the time it would fill such a need. We are amazed by the support we’ve
gotten from our fans, sponsors and the press.  This is one of the
proudest moments in our career!”


Lady A and ABC’s JuJu Chang visited Henryville High School earlier
today where they toured the devastated school that is currently under
construction and planning to reopen this fall. The community’s inspiring
story and highlights from the day will air tomorrow on Good Morning America, World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, Nightline,
ABC Radio and on ABC affiliates across the country. Additional national
and local media supporters will air special content from the event
throughout the week. For more information, visit www.thegreenroompr.com.

In
March, Lady Antebellum began a contest offering fans a chance to OWN
THE NIGHT with a private concert at their prom. The trio unanimously
chose the community of Henryville, IN for their story, resilience and
unity following devastating tornados.  Lipton also came on board to help
with the event in the spirit of their “Drink Positive” and “Live
Positive” message, a campaign that Lady A already supports. Fans who
weren’t able to attend the concert, but would still like to contribute
towards the cause can make a donation here: http://bit.ly/ladyaprom.
