The road to Southern California has led Lady Antebellum to the San Diego County Fair and it is sure to be a sell-out! Featuring Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, the group formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. On the road Lady Antebellum truly comes alive, mixing the rootsy stomp of forward-thinking Country music with the swooning, sweeping sound of three voices that were born to mesh.

Since Lady Antebellum won the Country Music Association Awards New Artist of the Year award in 2008, they have accumulated seven more awards, including their first Grammy in 2010 for Best Country Performance by Duo or Group with Vocals. At the 2009 CMAs, the group ended Rascal Flatts' six-year reign as Vocal Group of the Year. At the 2010 CMAs, the group became the first artist in CMA Award history to receive the Single of the Year honor for two consecutive years. At the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, the trio won the Song of the Year. They won Top Vocal Group at the 2012 ACM Awards April 1, 2012.

“Slithy Toves may gyre and gimble and Borogoves may be mimsy.
Whiffling through the tulgey wood makes one beamish and full of WHIMSY!”

Get ready for one “wild tea party” when the Fair fuses the magic of Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with the artistic movement known as Steampunk. Outlandish landscapes, crazy rides, unique foods, festivals, entertainment and magical manifestations by your favorite Wonderland characters will highlight every day of the Fair. The Jabberwock, Jubjub Bird and Frumious Bandersnatch may drive you, mad as a Hatter and “completely bonkers!”
Then again, “All the Best People Are!” - Lewis Carroll
