Lady Antebellum Win Favorite Country Duo or Group at 2012 American Music Awards
Lady Antebellum won their third-ever American Music Award on Sunday (Nov. 18) during the live broadcast of the awards show. They took home the statue for Favorite Country Duo or Group.
While Lady A have won this award before, it appears to never get old, as the trio looked absolutely thrilled to be on the stage accepting the prize. It’s a fan-voted award, too, which makes it that much more special.
“We want to dedicate to the over a million fans who came out to see us on the road,” Charles Kelley said, nodding to the band’s massively successful headline run, while Hillary Scott thanked the group’s teams for all the work they do to keep the band machine running.
Dave Haywood shouted out to their spouses and loved ones, even telling his wife he’d be home for Thanksgiving. It was really sweet, and we’re glad he’ll be able to enjoy some quality time with the missus for the holiday.
Lady A’s AMAs acceptance speech was touching, especially how each member was able to thank a different sect of people who support them and their career. That way, no one was left out or forgotten, and the trio wouldn’t have to deal with any angry phone calls the next day since they gave a quick, but all-encompassing, speech.
Congratulations to Lady Antebellum for their 2012 American Music Awards win!
