Lady Antebellum has set aside a block of seats at its Nashville Own The Night Tour date Feb. 22 for Country Radio Seminar attendees. The band wants to thank radio for its support, and is making a donation to CRS programs for scholarships, seminars and the Country Radio Hall of Fame.
“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!”
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 (TBD) following the seminar’s Artist/Attendee Welcome Reception at the Nashville Convention Center on Wednesday evening.
CRS 2012 will be held Feb. 22-24 in downtown Nashville.
