Lady Antebellum Reliant Stadium March 11, 2011
Less than a month after winning five Grammys, Lady Antebellum made their way to Houston for another stint at the Rodeo. Having been forced to listen to "Need You Now" countless times over the past year - half a dozen times at the Grammys, every other time we scrolled through our radio presets and never mind all the times we heard it while sitting at coffee shops around town - Aftermath wasn't exactly looking forward to hearing what we assumed would be the band's big finale. But otherwise, we were ready to boot-scoot another Rodeo.
Hell, we even wore a Future Farmers of America shirt. At the Rodeo, that's the equivalent of having an "I Support Our Troops" bumper sticker. People respect it and rarely ask questions... which is a good thing, because our knowledge of FFA is pretty limited.
As Lady Antebellum took the stage - in spite of taking what felt like forever to exit the truck that drove them there - the crowd screamed, and the night's musical entertainment began.
