Lady Antebellum

Kid Rock described Lady Antebellum as a “hillbilly Fleetwood Mac, except I suspect they don’t do drugs or sleep with each other.” Hmm? Like a lot of today’s country stars, Lady Antebellum traffic in heartache. But aside from the lyrics, there is little to suggest they’re hurting in any way. The arrangements have much in common with those too-familiar, regret-soaked Don Henley and Richard Marx hits from the 80s—if feelings are conveyed, they are as empty as prime time TV. Mild twang aside, they are a soft-rock band through and through, so perhaps Kid Rock was right about them being kin to Fleetwood Mac. Let me know when they start snorting tweak and screwing each other, then maybe I’ll listen. With David Nail. BRIAN J. BARR
