Lady Antebellum and their Lady A’ers definitely Owned the Night at a sold-out Staples Center in Los Angeles this past Tuesday, March 27th! Their Own the Night 2012 World Tour has been a huge success so far, and they deserve all the success in the world! I was fortunate enough to be in attendance on Tuesday, and I had THE best experience for my 7th Lady A concert! It started off with a very memorable meet & greet with Charles, Hillary, and Dave. I gave them each a collage of one of my favorite concerts of theirs I attended, which was their first concert in London back in 2010! I also made a little bandana for Hillary’s adorable dog, Hobbs, with his name and a “Keep Calm and Own the Night” logo I made. They could not have been any nicer!! I will always cherish my moment talking with them, and there’s nothing like hearing Charles call you darlin’!
Following the meet and greet, I headed to the floor to watch opening acts Thompson Square and Darius Rucker, who were amazing! Next stop before Lady A took the stage was to the inner circle, which is a circular area “cut out” literally inside their stage. I made it to, what I believed to be, THE spot, front row and center, right by the stairs in the circle. Once the Lady A dance party settled and the lights dimmed, the opening video montage began and fans went wild. One of the highlights for me was seeing Dave, Charles, and Hillary rise up onto the stage right in front of me, and the energy in the arena was electric. And soon after that, Dave seemed to recognize me from the M&G while in the inner circle and said hello as he came over to shake hands with the fans. I just can’t get over how friendly they are
Here’s a video I took of that moment:
Another highlight from the concert was when Charles introduced One Republic’s Ryan Tedder to the stage to sing Good Life with them!! I fell in love with Lady A’s rendition from their previous webisode, and to hear it live with Ryan was icing on the cake!

All in all, my entire experience that night, from meeting Lady A to feeling like I was a part of the show in the inner circle was beyond words!! When I find something in life that I enjoy and love, I truly dedicate myself to it. For me life is nothing without finding something you are passionate about, and I am without a doubt passionate about Lady A and their music and connection to their fans.
Thank you Charles, Hillary, and Dave for an incredible “Own the Night” experience, it was wonderful to meet you all, and I hope to do so again in the near future! Thank you also to Mia Quinn, who does such a fantastic job keeping us Lady A’ers up to date about all things Lady A! I was so happy to finally meet you as well. Have a great time when you all go back to London this summer! Sadly, I’ll just miss you, because I arrive in London at the end of July, but I can’t wait until my next Lady A show! LA definitely LOVES Lady A!
CHEERS! andrea ♥
P.S. Don’t forget to catch Lady A’s performance on the ACM’s this Sunday, April 1st! Also Hillary’s birthday! Happy early Birthday!!
