LADY ANTEBELLUM BRINGS THEIR "OWN THE NIGHT 2012 WORLD TOUR" TO THE DCU CENTER ON MAY 5TH
Lady Antebellum with Darius Rucker and special guest Thompson Square*
Reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year, Lady Antebellum, announced the second leg of their "OWN THE NIGHT 2012 WORLD TOUR" with Darius Rucker and special guest Thompson Square.*
Lady Antebellum's record breaking third disc OWN THE NIGHT debuted at the No. one position on Billboard's Top 200 chart last month, becoming the biggest first week debut by a country artist this year. Its current hit "We Owned The Night" is the album's second single and follows their fifth career No. one hit "Just A Kiss." The trio's previous two albums have sold over five million copies across the globe, spawned four No. one hits, scored six GRAMMYs and over a dozen other award show trophies. The group is currently nominated for Vocal Group of the Year for the 45th Annual CMA Awards, Favorite Country Band, Duo or Group for the 2011 American Music Awards and will be honored as one CMT's five Artists of the Year in December.
Darius Rucker has again topped the charts with the release of his sophomore country album, Charleston, SC 1966, on Capitol Records Nashville. Since it's October 2010 debut, Charleston, SC 1966 has garnered two No. one hits with "Come Back Song" and "This." The third single, "I Got Nothin'," is on country radio now and working its way up the charts. His chart-topping 2008 debut release, Learn To Live produced three consecutive No. one singles and Top Five smash, "History In The Making." In addition to country music, Darius offers much of his time to charitable efforts benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Hootie & The Blowfish Foundation, and many others.
One of Country music's biggest breakout acts of 2011, Stoney Creek Records' Thompson Square, has earned 12 major awards show nominations in 2011. The husband-and-wife's infectious hit single, "Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not," reached the coveted No. one spot on both Country radio charts and has sold 1.5 million downloads to-date. The single is also the most played song of the year on Country radio (Mediabase). Thompson Square's current single, "I Got You," is cresting Top 10 on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country radio charts and is a No. one hit on the Music Row chart.
