Oh, Lady Antebellum, how we all love you so. Especially when you take time out of your busy schedule to make a difference in the lives of others.
That’s exactly what the trio did last week during a Niagara Falls tour stop in Ontario, Canada. Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood surprised the folks at Fitch Street Elementary School by donating more than 35 musical instruments to the school staffers backstage at the concert.
The generous move is a part of Lady A’s 7FOR7 campaign which began at the end of last year and grants wishes to fans.
Those charitable moves include setting up a scholarship fund to help a hardworking nursing student through her college career and surprising an army wife and mother who volunteers with the Paralyzed Veterans of America with a trip to the 2015 ACM Awards for both her and her husband.
And their generosity isn’t about to stop anytime soon. Lady A, along with labelmates Keith Urban and Little Big Town will be performing during the ACM Lifting Lives’ “One Night, Two Cities, All Music” benefit show in Dallas and Fort Worth on April 17.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are hosting this one, which is a pretty nifty concept. All artists will be performing at different venues simultaneously. Kelley, Scott and Haywood will take the stage at the Omni Dallas with fellow country star Hunter Hayes.
All proceeds will once again benefit organizations aimed at helping young people, including Brooks’ Teammates for Kids, along with the Child Life Zones in Children’s Health of Dallas and Cook’s Children health care clinic in Fort Worth.
