Lady Antebellum

The two-guys-and-a-girl trio Lady Antebellum seems as though it's been genetically engineered to robotically churn out soft rock hit after soft rock hit for the country charts. As with the likes of Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts or Keith Urban, they are polished to the point where those who prefer their twang trucked in on a gravel road will be instantly repulsed. But while main male crooner Charles Kelley (brother of Josh, aka Mr. Katherine Heigl) comes off as sort of a 'bag, it's rather impossible not to be charmed by Hillary Scott, who boasts a voice too true to be dismissed as saccharin, and a figure far too full to have been plucked from a lipstick ad and auto-tuned for the masses. With Darius "Hootie" Rucker, Thompson Square. MIKE SEELY
