Lady A are returning to the Kicks99 Guitar Pull this year, for the first time since 2008. Of course, they’ve been here in the CSRA between 2008 and 2023, but this will be their first Guitar Pull appearance. I’ve been very fortunate to spend quite a bit of time with Lady A over the years. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
I remember the first time I had the chance to meet Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood was back in early 2008. They played a show with Luke Bryan out at the Columbia County Amphitheater. Of course, they weren’t the big stars they are now, and neither was Luke, they each had maybe one song out at the time.
Lady A and Luke both came back for Guitar Pull in 2008. That night they shined and definitely stole the show. Lady A joined Luke Bryan in the first-ever performance of his song “Do I”. Charles and Dave from Lady A finished writing the song with Luke earlier that day. It wouldn’t be long before Luke and Lady A’s careers would both skyrocket!
Over the next few years, Lady A would come back to Augusta pretty regularly. They brought their tour here a couple of times. They played the opening of the Lady A Pavilion at Evans Town Center Park. Lady A also played Rock Fore Dough back in 2017. That was the last time they’ve played in the CSRA as a band.
Charles Kelley has played some solo shows here over the past few years, but the Kicks99 Guitar Pull this year will mark Lady A’s return to Augusta!
