Last night, Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley and I Don’t Believe We’ve Met singer-songwriter Danielle Bradbery performed at a radio event. Charlotte, North Carolina‘s The New 103.7 WSOC held its eighth annual Southern Girls Night Out at Coyote Joe‘s, and two of country music’s most pristine voices took the stage for the show.
Of course, Kelley has plenty of solo songs to perform, as he released his acclaimed album The Driver in 2016, but he would likely be booed out of town if he didn’t mix in some of his smash hits as part of award-winning trio, Lady A. So, like any smart, chart-topping frontman would do, Kelley filled his set list with recognizable tunes that the fans could enjoy.
Included on that list is fan favorite (as well as radio favorite) “Need You Now“; a story of a couple that broke up, but can’t help continuing to think about each other and occasionally picking up the phone for a late night visit. The song is typically sung with another Lady A member, Hillary Scott; however, Scott is currently at home, taking care of her newborn twins. Lucky for Kelley, he had another female powerhouse on hand to fill the role of the duet partner.
Big Machine‘s Bradbery, who just released her sophomore full-length album in December, had big shoes to fill, but handled the vocals exactly as one would expect — perfectly. She crooned away, carrying the female parts seamlessly, later paying homage to Scott on social media.
