At a time when many musicians are having trouble selling music and filling venues, Nashville’s Lady Antebellum excels at both. Since the band’s inception in 2006, it seems all the trio has done is sell millions of records and fill huge amphitheaters to capacity across the country. Their unique version of country pop inspired legions of copycats—and garnered Lady Antebellum multiple Grammy nods, including wins for Record and Song of the Year in 2011. More recently, the group released “Bartender,” the first single off their forthcoming record. As for their upcoming travels, the group enlisted Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves to open for their Take Me Downtown Tour, making a stop in Irvine this week.
