Lady Antebellum: Shepherd's Bush Empire
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 13 August 2010
THE GULF BETWEEN UK AND US MUSICAL TASTES is epitomised by Nashville's Lady Antebellum. Back home, the trio's emollient country-pop — which, to British ears, sounds like Fleetwood Mac with Tennessee vowels — has struck such a chord that they have sold more albums in the US than anyone else this year. Over here, despite selling out this debut British show, they are likely to remain a niche interest, like contemporaries Taylor Swift and Rascal Flatts.
