Lady Antebellum helped raise more than $285,000 at Louisville, KY’s KFC Yum! Center on May 16 to benefit the Henryville, IN community, which had been ravaged by a tornado earlier this year. All proceeds will be distributed through the New Hope/Indiana Bankers Association for the Disaster Relief Fund.
The group also hosted a private prom event with Henryville High School’s Juniors and Seniors where they surprised the students a with an acoustic performance, which was followed by the arena concert open to the public.
“This event started as an idea we had in the studio last year to crash someone’s prom,” explains Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We had no idea at the time it would fill such a need. We are amazed by the support we’ve gotten from our fans, sponsors and the press. This is one of the proudest moments in our career!”
Lady A and ABC’s JuJu Chang visited Henryville High School where they toured the building that is currently under construction and planning to reopen this fall. The story will be featured today (5/17) on Good Morning America, World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer, Nightline, ABC Radio and on ABC affiliates across the country.
