Lady Antebellum Prom
March 21, 2012 by staff
Lady Antebellum Prom, Country music group Lady Antebellum has chosen Henryville, Ind., as the winner of its “Own the Night” prom contest, announcing Tuesday that it will play a special concert May 16 in Louisville, Ky., for juniors and seniors whose high school was crushed by one of the March 2 tornadoes.
Schools from as far away as northern Wisconsin submitted YouTube videos urging the country trio to choose Henryville.
“After carefully reviewing each submission, the trio unanimously chose the community of Henryville, IN., for their story, resilience and unity following devastating tornadoes earlier this month,” the group’s website says.
“Not only was their own submission moving, but schools across the country spontaneously submitted videos … in support of Henryville receiving the special concert, including the winning submission from Silver Creek High School,” in nearby Sellersburg, Ind., the website says.
But because of a previously scheduled commitment, the group won’t be able to attend Henryville’s scheduled prom on April 27, according to the website.
Instead, the band will throw a larger event May 16 in Louisville for the school’s juniors and seniors, followed by a benefit for the tornado-stricken community. Details will be shared in a few days, the website says.
Amy Fischmer, a Henryville art teacher and co-sponsor of the junior class, which organizes the prom, said a wave of excitement was spreading through the community as students found out about Lady Antebellum’s decision Tuesday. The students aren’t disappointed that the band won’t play their prom, she said.
“They get double parties,” Fischmer said. “What teenager doesn’t like that?”
