    Apparently the word antebellum is racist. This is only gonna get worse. I know my employer is listening to employees concerns about racism, police etc. I belong to botanical society and they sent me a letter in support of blm. I wrote back and told them they will no longer receive my support.

    I could honestly careless either way about any of this as in a month this will have died just like it did last time and every other time it has come up. Good for them on the name change as it was a stupid band name in the first place. Hopefully they do better this time.

    Whether today's hot topics will become permanent, only time will tell. But the artists formerly known as Lady Antebellum still have to make a living and deal with the entertainment business set

    I've never been a fan of Lady Antebellum and/or their music, and even less of one, now.

    yes, this is what is happening, HISTORY is racist. This is nothing new. Deceiving and evil leaders have been doing this throughout history. They don't want us to know our history so THEY can repeat it.

    The fact that they are choosing to change their name doesn't bother me. Now, if the idjits were to say the name was racists and you can never perform again and all of their records had to be destroyed, then yeah I'd have issues with it

    Lines are clearly being drawn in the marketplace, and we, as consumers, should do business with companies that support our political philosophy or remain neutral. Companies (or bands, professional sports, etc.) that announce their support for Progressive ideals/actions should not receive our business.

    The time has come to be more active in working against companies that openly support Progressivism. Maybe we can’t eliminate all contacts with such businesses, but we can carve out the worst offenders like Amazon. Buying power is political power.

    I will start by closing my account with Amazon today. Other relationships will be terminated along the way. I won’t watch NFL games this year. These businesses have to know we are as sensitive to their political positions as their woke-ass Liberal customers. Screw ‘em!

    I googled them, to confirm my vague idea that they were a country band. Wikipedia already says: "Lady A[1] (formerly known as Lady Antebellum)"

    Maybe they should change their name to a symbol with no name, like Prince.

    Say hello to the Dixie Chicks on your way down.

    I had to look it up to see who they are. I think it is a very dumb name to start with and Lady A is dumber.
