Popular Country Band ‘Lady Antebellum’ Forced To Change Name Over Racism Concerns

The popular country band ‘Lady Antebellum’ has now been forced to change its name to simply ‘Lady A’ over concerns that the bands name may be racist.

As The Daily Wire reports:

In a series of Tweets issued Thursday, the Grammy-winning country music group, Lady Antebellum, announced that they are changing their name to “Lady A,” in light of recent protests over the death of George Floyd during an arrest by Minneapolis police officers, and concerns their name brought to mind racist imagery.

The group — made up of musician trio Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood, and Charles Kelley — has used the name, “Lady Antebellum” since 2006, according to CNN. The name, the band said, originally referenced the typical southern-style “Antebellum” home, which to them, “reminded us of all the music born in the south that influenced us…southern rock, blues, R&B, gospel and of course country.”…

“Antebellum” means “pre-war” in Latin, but is often used to refer to pre-Civil War southern culture.

In their statement, the band says they now regret the decision to adopt the “Lady Antebellum” name.

Was Lady Antebellum right to change their name, or are they just cowardly giving in to a woke mob? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Absolutely Ridiculous!! Beyoncé does a super bowl show revering and praising the black panthers, the most racist organization in the USA next to the KKK, but that’s ok. This is a joke! Wake up America.. this isn’t about racial equality , this is about Black Supremacy!! They want to eradicate any semblance of Caucasian European influence and history in the USA and turn it into the sh&thole that is now South Africa!

They are nothing but a subsidiary of George Soros, who Kathy Griffin should want to give a syringe to instead of Trump in this anything goes world. We need to be boycotting all of these people from NASCAR to NFL to commedians and demanding our favorite shows back by not even turning on their networks for a month so their ratings lessen – read a good book that does not obsess on politics and is a good mystery read. If they get into politics – do not buy their books – need to send Hollywood a lesson before it is too late – the media and Hollywood and the like only make money when you view a show like the new OPRA series, MSNBC or purchase a book.

they ‘chose’ to change the name–it wasn’t forced. perhaps they are being proactive. perhaps they are using this as an opportunity to broaden their core audience. it could be a merchandising move. however, it’s probably just virtue signaling, which makes it a totally meaningless act.

Agree. It shows a complete lack of confidence and weak character by each member of this group. Now, the fans have lack of respect for their weak character.

Lady A, the socialist movement will not stop with your name. They want total control. When the movement begins to collapse economically, they’ll find meaningful duties within the collective. From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

Country, Rock-A-Billy and other Country music venues carry a BLACK, HISPANIC, AFRICAN AND OTHER MIXED RACE AUDIENCES PROBABLY REPRESENT 2% – 8% [??] of the Country music listeners, most certainly not their “CORE AUDIENCE”. When is the last time you saw a black couple doing the Texas 2-Step or wearing a cowboy/cowgirl hat and western boots?

No, ‘Lady Antebellum’ simply caved-in and surrendered to the “WOKE” and violent rioters, criminals, looters and murderers. GOOD JOB, GREAT CHOICE YOU MILLENNIAL PU$$IES AND COWARDS. TRUE AMERICAN HEROES AND PATRIOTS. TAKE AN ETERNAL DIRT NAP AND JUST DISAPPEAR.

Nope…Black Votes Matter according to the Dem Dingdongs in this Country.
Honestly, there are a lot of hard-working, patriotic and God-fearing artists in this country who would never sell out as LA has.
I’m saddened by this, but sticking to my guns.

Bullying is correct. They will lose a majority of their fans then where will they be. The ones whom they are “kneeling ” to don’t listen or purchase their music anyway so I don’t understand why they are letting them dictate to them. They claim to be Christians, need to go back and read the book of Daniel about bowing to other gods.

I want to address the real issue here. When you take a knee during the playing of America’s national anthem and the raising of the American Flag, you are not referring to issues of racism. Period. You hate our Nation and Country and all the good that we have accomplished. The fighting of World wars and the pride of being American. If you don’t like America, then LEAVE her. Find another way to express your feelings about any injustices of racism.
Just off the top of my head, you could begin by NOT demonstrating during our National Anthem.
Pick a day, pick a time, and everybody that wants to participate, knell for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Just a suggestion. As long as you are on your knees, you might pray to your Maker to heal and change the hearts of some men and women referring to any prejudices against people of color. USA

Enough is enough, this BS has got to stop. Lady Antebellum, keep your name or lose many country fans. I for one am tired of the woke leftists. A civil war will soon rage in America if this group of leftist, socialist, communists do not stop their stupid thinking about our country. You don’t like my country, feel free to leave and take your ignorant ideas with you, try North Korea or Venezuela.

The only thing it helps is to make the woke person look like a complete fool and I don’t follow or gang with fools. I say goodbye to their music.
