Original Lady A files countersuit against country group formerly called Lady Antebellum

It’s been two months since we last checked in on the fight between blues singer Anita “Lady A” White and country music band Lady Antebellum (who decided to

change their name to Lady A back in June even though there was already a woman performing under that name). The two sides met to discuss how to proceed back in June, with the band proudly declaring that they both agreed to share the name ...

The original Lady A on the band's lawsuit: "I should not have to bend to their will"

“All I ever wanted was to keep my name in the blues genre doing what I did. I should not have to bend to [the band’s] will because they’ve got money.”

Last week, the members of country group Lady Antebellum announced that they had finally decided to do something about the racist undertones of the band name they chose,

adopting the new moniker Lady A in place of the one that was an inexplicably accidental reference to the days when slavery was legal. Unfortunately, their continued refusal to just look things up before settling on a band name...

Lady Antebellum failed to notice "Lady A" was already taken before they changed their name

Lady Antebellum failed to notice "Lady A" was already taken before they changed their name

Earlier this week , country band Lady Antebellum announced—a scant 14 years after adopting it—that they’d suddenly realized that their name might possibly be construed by some people as being in support of the racist, pro-slavery, pre-Civil-War Southern society that it’s long been associated with. (On account of “Antebellum” being its, you know, name.) Rushing—14 years later—to correct this...
