Six-time Grammy Award-Winning Trio Lady Antebellum to Perform Special Show During CRS 2012

Band makes special statement of appreciation to Country radio with a donation to support CRS programs

(Nashville, Tenn. – Oct. 19, 2011) CRS 2012 attendees will have a special seat for Lady Antebellum’s Nashville concert on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2012.

In a show of appreciation to Country radio, the six-time Grammy Award-winning trio has allocated a block of seats for Country Radio Seminar attendees as a way to say thank you for supporting the band throughout their career.

“We feel like it was just yesterday when we heard our first single on the radio for the first time.  Here we are four years later with so much gratitude and love in our hearts for our friends at Country radio,” said Lady A's Hillary Scott.  “With our Own The Night Tour going on this spring, we thought what better time to play Nashville than during CRS...we want this to be a huge party to celebrate our relationship with Country radio, our hometown, and OWNING THE NIGHT!”

The band is also making a donation to help support all CRS programs, including its scholarship, seminar and the Country Radio Hall of Fame.

“The direct relationship that Country radio has with its artists is unparalleled in this business,” says CRS Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “Country Radio Seminar has always strived to strengthen those relationships, and we are deeply appreciative of Lady Antebellum’s generosity and recognition of those efforts.  This show marks the first of several upcoming artist announcements we have planned in the coming months as CRS continues to evolve and create new and exciting events at the most comprehensive Country radio industry event in the world.”

All CRS 2012 attendees will receive a ticket to the show in their on-site registration packets.  Shuttle buses will transport attendees to and from the venue following the seminar’s Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception at the Nashville Convention Center on Wednesday evening.
