History YMMV / LadyA

Go To


Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: The name change actually got them more flak for racial insensitivity than it took off them, because within a few months they'd filed legal action against a black singer who'd been going by Lady A for 20 years and didn't want to give the name up.


* SophomoreSlump: Averted about as hard as possible, thanks to "Need You Now."


* DistancedFromCurrentEvents: The band was originally known as Lady Antebellum, but changed their name to Lady A due to its reference to the [[UsefulNotes/AmericanCivilWar Antebellum Southern United States]] in the wake of the George Floyd protests in 2020. It was one of two country music bands who changed their names alongside The Dixie Chicks, who changed their name to simply Music/TheChicks.

Added DiffLines:

* CoveredUp: Eric Paslay, co-writer of the album cut "Friday Night" from ''Own the Night'', had a Top 5 hit in 2014 with his own version.
* DorkAge: ''Golden'' and ''747'' both sold poorly and their singles largely underperformed on the charts, due to a combination of poor single choices and a forced attempt at shedding the "sleepy" sound of ''Golden''.
* EpicRiff: The piano notes at the start of "Need You Now".
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhTpdgoGtTA This parody]] of "[[Music/SamHunt Body Like a Back Road]]" which features Charles and Dave singing about wearing bathrobes on a bus.
* IAmNotShazam: Some people call Hillary Scott "Lady Antebellum".
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Some music critics have said this of ''Own the Night'', on which many of the songs have the same "epic" instrumentation as "Need You Now".
* SignatureSong: "Need You Now".
* SophomoreSlump: Averted about as hard as possible, thanks to "Need You Now."
* TearJerker: "Hello World". It makes you really want to appreciate life more...
** Also "Wanted You More". Bittersweet melody, good heartfelt vocals, and as for the lyrics? Ouch, heartbreaking...
** "Need You Now", of course. While it's basically just about "booty calls", it can be interpreted as a sad heartbreak song between two angry partners.
