Lady Antebellum is known for its charitable acts almost as well as its country-fried harmonies. The trio of Dave Haywood, Hilary Scott and Charles Kelley will be receiving the 2015 Artist Humanitarian Award from the Country Radio Broadcasters for their efforts to give back, Rolling Stone notes. Recently, the group even threw its support behind the popular cause, No Shave November, by parodying Meghan Trainor's monster hit "All About That Bass."
In the short clip below, the band reworks the lyrics, singing, "I'm all about that beard (no stubble)" in support of the month-long hair fest. The concept is that for the month of November, participants donate their shaving money to the cause and help raise cancer awareness. Lady A's No-Shave efforts will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Visit the movement's official website to learn more and donate.
The group's LadyAID group has helped communities after natural disasters. They helped rebuild a school in Tennessee after a flood in 2010. Later they put on a prom for a school in Indiana after a tornado, performing a benefit concert that raised a decent chunk of change. The band also started 7FOR7, which surprises seven fans in seven days with gifts.
Lady A's sixth studio album, 747, came out in September. It peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts.
"I think 747 was well written and produced. I can totally see why people dig these guys, even if it's not my go-to music," Caitlin Carter of Music Times wrote. "I appreciate that they talk about more than just the generic beer, whiskey, 'murrica, tractors and 'my woman.' The songwriting reminds me a lot of Taylor Swift's lyrics -- personal but universal."
