SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY-WINNING TRIO LADY ANTEBELLUM FEATURED IN AN ALL-NEW EPISODE OF CMT'S BIO-SERIES, "INSIDE FAME," PREMIERING SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8 AT 8 P.M. ET/PT
NASHVILLE - November 4, 2014 - CMT's hit biography series INSIDE FAME is back with an all-new installment, featuring a profile of award-winning group Lady Antebellum, premiering Saturday, November 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The one-hour special episode tells the story of the trio comprised of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood. INSIDE FAME follows the group through the ups and downs and hard work of worldwide tours, five hit-filled albums and the challenge to push themselves out of their comfort zone as they continually challenge their approach to songwriting and recording.
With seven Grammys under their belt, Lady Antebellum has risen to country music superstardom with ease in less than a decade. Scott, Kelley and Haywood all hail from musical upbringings, eventually converging in Music City in 2006. By October 2007, Lady Antebellum released their first single, "Love Don't Live Here," which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard charts. Their eponymous debut album, released in April 2008, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart - the first time ever by a new duo or group. Five albums later, the group is still churning out multi-platform hits. From playing small clubs in Nashville to selling out arenas worldwide, Lady Antebellum has amassed a loyal following of fans and peers. INSIDE FAME: LADY ANTEBELLUM features rare behind-the-scenes footage, exclusive interviews with the group and their family members, label representatives, music critics and fellow country stars Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and Kip Moore.
