Colt Ford Takes Nashville To Georgia For Big Benefit
group1Athens, Georgia native Colt Ford recruited some of his Nashville buddies for a benefit show in his hometown on Tuesday (8/16) to raise money for the families of one injured and one fallen police officer.

Joining Ford in raising $85,000 were Rhett Akins, Jason Aldean, Dallas Davidson, Mike Dekle, Edwin McCain, James Otto, and surprise guests Brantley Gilbert, Rachel Farley, and Corey Smith, many of whom are natives of the Peach State.

The sold-out show at the Georgia Theatre drew a crowd of 1,100 for the three-hour in-the-round performance, which featured Ford’s band backing the sets.

Over 200 people enjoyed a pre-show private reception and celeb memorabilia silent auction at the Hotel Indigo’s Rialto Room.

Donations for the officers’ families are being accepted at

Lady Antebellum - "We Owned The Night"
LAFrom the very first time I heard “Love Don’t Live Here,” I’ve been a big supporter of Lady Antebellum’s brand of country music. Sure, it’s mainstream modern country/pop music but that’s not necessarily a bad thing when you consider that they group is making classic tunes like “Need You Now,” “I Run To You” and “Hello World.”

With “Just A Kiss” now the group’s latest #1 hit, they’re immediately following the tune up at country radio with the title track to their upcoming September 2011 release Own The Night. “We Owned The Night” is another step in the melodic direction of the band’s other singles, a direction that is easy to call Lady Antebellum the country music equivalent of Coldplay or U2.

Their singles are more often than not epic and while not every song is going to appeal to every person, they hit more times than they don’t with the trio most definitely in their element in romantic tunes like “We Owned The Night.”

Lady Antebellum Hold On to No. 1 With ‘Just a Kiss’
Lady_A_Just_A_Kiss_Lady Antebellum has once again claimed the top spot on Billboard’s country singles chart this week with their smash hit ‘Just a Kiss.’ Their reign at the top marks the second straight week that the trio’s single has held down the spot on Billboard. This week, the tune also climbs to the top of the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for its first week.

‘Just a Kiss’ is the first single from Lady A’s forthcoming ‘Own the Night’ album, which is set to hit stores on September 13. The song was penned by the band, along with Peach Picker and hit songwriter Dallas Davidson.
