Leading the way is “Lady A Day at FFX.” To kick the week off, the group will cut the ribbon when the doors officially open to the FFX on Thursday, June 6. From the new Fan Fair X, Lady A will perform, sign autographs in their custom “backstage” booth @ClubLabellum, answer questions from fans in an interview segment called CMA Close Up, and is launching their PING PONG & SONGS event to include the thousands of fans in town for the Festival. Fans can also register at FFX for a private meet and greet with the group at LP Field on Friday, June 7.
“I’m looking forward to being in the new Music City Center,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We’re really excited to be given the opportunity to merge our PING PONG & SONGS event with Music Fest and this new fan experience CMA is creating. Now that fans from all over the country will be able to play ping pong against us, Charles and Dave are going to have to brush up on their skills! All the money we raise at our booth will go to LadyAID – it’s going to be so fun for us and for the fans!”
The Platinum-selling group, made up of members Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, and Scott, has won seven CMA Awards, including Vocal Group (2009-2011), Single (2009 for “I Run to You” and 2010 for “Need You Now,” which also earned them an additional Award for producing), and New Artist of the Year (2008). They first performed at CMA Music Festival in 2007 on the Riverfront stage and have performed at LP Field every year since (2008-2012). They will be performing again during the Nightly Concerts in 2013. LadyAID™ was set up by the trio as a philanthropic effort created to bring awareness to and generate support for children in need locally, nationally, and globally.
The multi-level organization is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. For more information, visit LadyAID.org.
