Lady Antebellum Donates To Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief With Video Premiere

Lady Antebellum filmed a video for their new single, “Heart Break,” amidst the colorful backdrops of the Spanish colonial buildings and vibrant culture of San Juan, Puerto Rico, so after watching the awful destruction the Hurricane wrought on Puerto Rico they knew they had to do something to help. 

Feeling the urgency to continue raising awareness and support for those affected after Hurricane Maria struck the area, Lady A is premiering the new video across all video platforms today and is making a donation of $200,000 from LadyAID to hurricane relief efforts via MusiCares and United for Puerto Rico. Fans can also take part in the ongoing relief efforts by contributing at LadyAID.org.

“We got to meet so many locals and enjoy everything that Puerto Rico has to offer. We are just completely heart broken to see the devastation,” said Hillary Scott. “We want to do everything we can to support this incredible place and these incredible people. We just hope and pray for their safety and that rebuilding happens quickly. We encourage everyone to give whatever they can to help.”

“We save a portion of every ticket on the road to go toward LadyAID,” added Dave Haywood. “After spending time in San Juan, we fell in love with the area, the culture, the people, and that country—it was just a beautiful place. Our hearts have been completely broken watching the devastation from all of the hurricanes. We feel personally connected to helping support those affected.”

In other Lady A news, the trio’s Live From The Artists Den public television episode, filmed live from the United Palace Theater in Washington Heights, NY, premieres on TV nationwide this week. The show will air on select dates on public TV throughout October 17, including on WNPT in Nashville on October 17 at 7 p.m. CT.
