Saturday night at Stagecoach 2013. Lady Antebellum rocked the night as the headlining finishing act. Performing in front of 40,000 fans, their set list included hit singles ‘I Just Need You Now” and their latest number one single ‘Downtown‘. During the performance, Lady Antebellum sang a new song that was written to welcome the newest member of the band, Hillary Scott and drummer Chris Tyrell’s baby girl.
They also previewed a few stripped down unreleased songs off their new album “Golden.” These songs included ‘Goodbye Town’ and ‘Golden’. Later on during their show, Lady Antebellum brought Dierks Bentley on to the stage for an unrehearsed performance of the Bruce Springsteen’s big hit “On Fire.” Dierks had played on the Mane Stage as the act before Lady Antebellum and included a really moving rendition of George Jone’s legendary tune “Walk Through This World With Me.”
After a generous 90 minute performance Lady A. teased with a curtain call but came back with four additional songs including “We Own The Night.” It was a fitting final for the melodic Country trio, who managed to continually raise the performance level from one song to the next.
