Lady Antebellum, Clint Black Among New Music City Walk of Fame Inductees
Lady Antebellum will continue their successful 2019 with an induction into the Music City Walk of Fame. The country trio will be inducted along with Clint Black and Mac McAnally at a ceremony later this month which will also include posthumous inductions for Chet Atkins and DeFord Bailey.
"This class of inductees truly represents the diversity and heritage of the Music City brand," Nashville Mayor John Cooper says in a press release. "I’m glad to see greats like DeFord Bailey and Chet Atkins are being recognized and that the Music City Walk of Fame is inducting the extraordinary talents of Mac McAnally, Clint Black, and Lady Antebellum. This wonderful park — a place that both visitors and Nashvillians can enjoy — represents the best of Music City."
Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood are gearing up to release their seventh album together, Ocean, on Nov. 15.
"There’s this theme of returning to the core of who we are — as writers, vocalists and people — that came out in each of these songs," Haywood says. “Our time in the studio with [producer] Dann [Huff] had an excitement that felt like we were making our first album all over again."
Lady Antebellum have already released three songs from Ocean: the lead single "What If I Never Get Over You," "Pictures" and the title track "Ocean," which became the backbone of the album, according to Scott.
"It's such a cinematic and theatrical melody with a message that became the cornerstone of this record for us," she says. “Ocean is all of the things that we think and feel when we hear the word. This album is immersed in life stories about barely keeping your head above water all the way to those times that make you feel like everything is smooth sailing."
The Music City Walk of Fame induction ceremony will take place on Oct. 22 at the Music City Walk of Fame Park in Nashville.
