GAC will be the proud sponsor of Lady Antebellum‘s upcoming Own The Night 2011 Tour. The first leg will  kick off in Knoxville, Tennessee on November, 11 and run through December 18 when it wraps with a show in Morgantown, West Virginia. Josh Kelley – the older brother of Lady A’s Charles Kelley – will join the tour as a special guest, along with a combination of Edens Edge and Randy Montana in the opening slot.

“GAC and everyone who works over there have always shown us so much love and support, even from the very beginning of our career and the release of our first single,” Dave Haywood said. “This Own the Night tour has been so much fun to plan. We’re excited that we’ll have our friends at GAC out on the road with us and helping us put together a once-in-a-lifetime experience for country music fans.”

“GAC has loved Lady Antebellum from their earliest days and we’re thrilled to be hitting the road with them in November,” GAC President Ed Hardy said.

Both the tour and the trio’s upcoming album, Own The Night, title were inspired by the album’s second single. “We named our new album Own The Night after one of our favorite songs ‘We Owned The Night’ off the new album, and felt it was a great description of how we wanted our fans to spend each night of tour with us,” Dave said. “When people come out to our live show or hear the song on the radio it’s a call to action. Be confident, live in the moment and enjoy the experiences you’re going through—own them.” Continue Reading
