Lady Antebellum, a country blues band that includes two UGA alumni, walked away from the 2010 Grammys with the award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Lady Antebellum burst onto the music scene in 2007 featuring UGA grads Charles Kelley (BBA ’04) and David Haywood (BBA ’04). Along with Hillary Scott the band won “Vocal Group of the Year” and “Single of the Year” at the 2009 Country Music Association Awards and “Top New Group” at the 2008 Academy of Country Music awards. Kelley and Haywood were high school classmates in Augusta before coming to UGA. They met Scott in Nashville in the summer of 2006. For more on Lady Antebellum, go to
