Lady Antebellum

The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel, Nov. 18

The Nashville trio defied country stereotypes with a rockin’ concert. The best moment happened midway through the show, when a piano was brought onstage and openers Randy Montana and Josh Kelley joined Lady Antebellum as they sang “American Honey,” transitioning into various songs before ending with the Doobie Brothers’ “Black Water.” Lady Antebellum even sang Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion”—not a bad dose of classic rock for a band whose oldest member is 30. Nonetheless, after they left the stage, I was disappointed that they didn’t play my favorite tune, “Need You Now.” But Lady A owned the night by singing it as their encore. And I left completely satisfied.
