    The Grammy award-winning country music trio Lady Antebellum made a stop in the Boro on Friday, May 2, to headline Georgia Southern University's Spring Concert at Allen E. Paulson Stadium. Currently on its Take Me Downtown Tour 2014, Lady Antebellum, featuring Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, is known for hits including "I Run to You," "American Honey," "Just a Kiss" and "Need You Now," the single that claimed five of the group's seven career Grammy wins in 2011.
    Four-time Grammy nominee Joe Nichols, whose hits include "The Impossible," "Gimmie That Girl," "Brokenheartsville" and "Sunny and 75," served as one of the opening acts for Lady Antebellum. Nichols' newest single, "Yeah," officially impacted country radio in January and is already a Top 25 hit.
    Kristian Bush, one-half of the platinum-selling country duo Sugarland, also performed an opening act. Since forming Sugarland in 2002, Bush and singer Jennifer Nettles have found success with hits including "Baby Girl" and "Stay." A Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Bush is now in the process of completing his debut solo album, with an eye on releasing it later this year.
