Margo Price shared her unfiltered thoughts on the legal name dispute between the band Lady A, formerly known as Lady Antebellum, and the blues singer Anita "Lady A" White," after the first camp filed a lawsuit over the matter.
"sooooo they changed their name but does the 'A' stand for antebellum or a--hole," Price wrote on Twitter Wednesday (July 8) when the news of the suit first broke. Questlove also commented on the issue, tweeting on Wednesday, "lol so Lady Antebellum changed their name because of black lives.... and then sued singer @ladiawhite who has been known as #LadyA for the longest? uh......."
Earlier last month, the country trio consisting of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and David Haywood announced on Instagram that they were ditching their famed stage name from 2006, which dates back to the pre-Civil War South heavily fueled by slavery, in light of the resurgent Black Lives Matter movement. But White spoke out the next day in an interview with Rolling Stone saying she felt blindsided by the name change since she's been performing and recording under the "Lady A" title since 1987.
