Singer says lawsuit over Lady A name is ‘white privilege’

Dave Haywood, from left, Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley, of Lady A, formerly Lady Antebellum, the Grammy-winning country group that dropped the word “Antebellum” from their name because of the word’s ties to slavery, has filed a lawsuit against a Black singer who has used the stage name for years. The vocal group filed the lawsuit last week in federal court in Nashville after negotiations with Anita White broke down in recent weeks.
