Lady Antebellum will make their debut as the musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live on…you guessed it…this Saturday (October 1st). Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, Mike & Molly) is the host of the show. The band says they can mark this item off their bucket list now. “That’s on our bucket list,” Lady A’s Hillary Scott exclaims. “That’s definitely all of our No. 1s,” agrees Dave Haywood. “Growing up, I mean, for me that was when I would stay up to midnight to see who was playing on that show back when I was watching Nirvana play and all these bands back in the early ‘90s and whatever. This is, for me, kind of the stamp, and I cannot wait just to be in that studio.”
- Lady A is currently climbing the country charts with their latest single, “We Owned the Night,” the second release from their new album, Own the Night.
AUDIO: Lady A’s Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott talk about making the grade as they get ready to make their debut appearance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
Lady A (SNL) OC: …me personally. :45
DH: “I think that’s…(HS: That’s on our bucket list.)…that’s definitely all of our No. 1s. Hillary might say Oprah, which we had the opportunity to do. [HS laughs] But, yeah, for me especially, that’s my No. 1 is being able to do Saturday Night Live. Growing up, I mean for me that was when I would stay up to midnight to see who was playing on that show back when I was watching Nirvana play and all these bands back in the early ‘90s and whatever. This is for me, kind of the stamp and I cannot wait just to be in that studio. And it’s kind of a several day process. They want you up there for three or four days for a couple of rehearsals and a photo shoot and stuff, so it should be a pretty fun, you know, just a great experience all around to be up there in New York and to be able to walk in that building and be there for a couple of days. So, [I] couldn’t be more thrilled about that one, for me personally.”
