The 2022 Symphony Ball fundraiser chairmen, Shaun Inman and Sheila Shields, have announced that the 5-time Grammy Award-winning group Lady A will receive the 2022 Nashville Symphony Harmony Award.
The multi-Platinum trio will receive the award during the 38th annual Symphony Ball on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The Harmony Award recognizes individuals who embody the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s musical community. It is presented annually by the Symphony and selected by a committee.
“We are so honored to co-chair the 2022 Symphony Ball, and we look forward to presenting a beautiful evening of dinner, dancing, and music in the stunning Schermerhorn Symphony Center,” says Inman and Shields. “The Ball is very special to us, helping the Symphony bring exceptional artistry to the stage and free music education programs to our Middle Tennessee children. Everyone, young and old, benefits from more music in their lives.”
Lady A have long been a model of mainstream success, built around rich vocal harmony, lucid emotional writing and a smooth blend of country, rock and pop. The group’s 11 No. 1 hits, 18 million albums sold, 34 million tracks, five billion digital streams as well as a global touring footprint make that evident. Known for their hit “Need You Now,” which is the highest certified song by a country group, they have earned the CMA’ s Vocal Group of the Year award three years in a row and many other accolades including five Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and a Tony Award nomination.
