Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young
Hollywood Casino Amphitheater – Tinley Park, IL, USA- August 19, 2017
It was another packed summer night at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater, where country music lovin’ fans were blown away by the performance of Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young.
Brett Young started the night, singing only 4 songs and had the crowd begging for more. Nominated for New Male Vocalist of Year, capturing the hearts of fans with his honest lyrics, those bight eyes, and country charm, Brett will also be headlining his own tour this year – definitely not going to want to miss out on that!
Next up, skyrocketing into the spotlight, was Kelsea Ballerini. Having opened for country greats, Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, and now Lady Antebellum, Kelsea took time to explain how her life has come full circle, living out her childhood dreams. This country beauty sang her top songs “Peter Pan”, “Dibs”, “Stilettos” and “Yeah Boy”, but she absolutely nailed an acoustic version The Chainsmokers “Closer”. If you missed this one, make sure you catch Kelsea with Thomas Rhett as a special guest on his Home Team Tour 2017.
Since 2006, Lady Antebellum (Hilary Scott – Charles Kelley – David Haywood) has sold over 18 million units and had nine #1 singles on the country charts. This trio put on a fantastic show, complete with the funky horn arrangement for “You Look Good”. Pregnant with twins, Hilary Scott looked stunning and welcomed the moment where she got to take a seat and sing us her Christina song that she wrote with her family, “Thy Will be Done” – absolute perfection. Hilary isn’t the only expecting parent for the Lady A team, Dave Haywood and wife are also looking forward to a new little one. Exciting times ahead for all of them. If you didn’t make it out for this show, make sure you add it to your bucket list of Country Artists you want to see perform live, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Young and LiveNation for allowing us to photograph and review this concert.
