Lady Antebellum has also launched a new charitable initiative called LadyAID, a philanthropic effort created to bring awareness to and generate support for children in need locally, nationally and globally.

The multi-level organization will award grants to help children throughout Tennessee, including to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. On a national level, the fund will support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and on a global level, myLIFEspeaks and The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). The LadyAID Fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
