SPOTLIGHT ARTIST OF THE DAY: LADY ANTEBELLUM
Lady Antebellum is comprised of singers Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley and multi-instrumentalist Dave Haywood. Kelley and Haywood were classmates at the University of Georgia, studying finance, when they started writing songs together. In time, they decided to move to Nashville to pursue music careers. Hillary Scott, the daughter of country singer Linda Davis and musician Lang Scott, once had major label interest as a solo artist; however, the deal fell through. In 2006, she introduced herself to Kelley (whose brother, Josh Kelley, is also a musician) after recognizing him from his MySpace profile. When all three members started writing and performing together, Nashville noticed. They began opening shows for big country artists, as well as earning high-profile gigs in the clubs around town. With a successful first single (“Love Don’t Live Here”), Capitol Nashville released their debut album in 2008.

ALREADY TIRED OF CHRISTMAS ADVERTISING?
Blake Shelton was born on June 18, 1976, in Ada, Okla. He wrote songs as a teenager and honed his performing style as he played honky-tonk bars and became a regular on a local country music show.
At 17, Shelton met songwriter Mae Boren Axton (“Heartbreak Hotel”). She had returned to her Oklahoma roots for a tribute show honoring her in Ada. Shelton was part of the entertainment lineup and Axton told him to move to Nashville if he wanted a successful country music singing career. Two weeks out of high school in 1994, he packed his guitar and headed there.
In 1997, he was co-writing with a friend who tipped off songwriter/producer Bobby Braddock, who co-wrote the standards “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” “D-I-V-O-R-C-E” and “Time Marches On,” among others. Braddock ultimately served as the producer for Shelton’s self-titled debut on Warner Bros. Nashville. His debut single, “Austin,” stayed at No. 1 on Billboard‘s singles chart for five weeks, tying Billy Ray Cyrus‘ record for a debut single. Shelton also reached No. 1 for three weeks with “The Baby” in 2003. He spent most of the year on the road with Toby Keith and married his high school sweetheart. They divorced in 2006.
