Would you still love Lady Antebellum if they were called Sunrise Sampler?
It almost happened. Kind of.
The threesome love Cracker Barrel so much that they considered picking their name from the menu. I’m serious. Lady A have admitted that while they were making their first album they would stop by the restaurant for some comfort food. During one of these trips, Dave Haywood suggested they seek inspiration from the menu.
“They have wonderful names,” he says. “Sunrise Sampler. Uncle Hershel’s Favorite.”
However, Hillary Scott was pulling for “Chicken and Dumplings.”
