Seven-time Grammy winning trio Lady Antebellum has secured a concert date in the Twin Cities, booking Target Center for Dec. 5 and is bringing along a rising country star on the newly announced tour.

Joining the trio is Kacey Musgrave, whose debut album this spring “Same Trailer Different Park” started at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making her the first solo female artist in five years to open at the top with her first release.

Musgrave’s Top 10 single “Merry Go ‘Round” was recently certified gold, and she has been nominated for six 2013 Country Music Association Awards, including Album of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year.

Since its 2006 inception, Lady Antebellum has won the “Vocal Group of the Year” honor from both the Country Music Association and from the Academy of Country Music three times running and sold more than 11 million albums worldwide.

Also on the bill is Kip Moore, whose recent No. 1 hit, “Hey Pretty Girl,” follows two consecutive No. 1 songs off his debut album, “Up All Night.”

Tickets go on sale Sept. 20 at the Target Center box office and at www.cidentertainment.com/ladyantebellum. Lady A’s most recent stop in the Twin Cities was in March 2012, also at Target Center.
