I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you
– lyrics from “I Run To You”, by Lady Antebellum

We recently were given tickets and meet and greet passes at the Kenny Chesney Sun City Tour with opening acts, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Sugarland (they cancelled).  We were lucky to have some time before the show with Lady Antebellum, a trio from Nashville (in the photo surrounding my wife and I from left to right they are Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott, and Charles Kelley).

Winners of the 2008 ACM New Artists of the year and performers of the recently #1 hit “I Run to You” they are a great group of 20-somethings.  Not your traditional country artists, they have a real soulful sound that provides a new sound that has widespread appeal.  “I Run to You” is about an expression against hate, prejudice, negativity, and the redemption of love in society.  Hey maybe country music is growing on me.
I should add the the trio are a great group of kids and were terrific with our two children, signing autographs and giving them hugs.  It was the first concert ever for our kids who were in total awe.
For those who are interested, many new artists give their fans a chance to meet them in Meet and Greets that are made available through a ticket purchase opportunity or via fan clubs, although our tickets came from their management group. Miranda Lambert also had a Meet and Greet arranged before this concert.
