On (September 10) Charles and Dave attended and were honored at the 7th Annual ACM Honors. Here’s an excerpt of the nights events from CMT.com:
Darius Rucker then came forward to present Lady Antebellum the Jim Reeves International Award for the trio’s efforts in taking country music to the world on its 2012 tour.
Lady A’s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood accepted the trophy and stayed onstage to salute the next honoree, ACM songwriter of the year Dallas Davidson.
Nodding to Blake Shelton, who sat with his wife Miranda Lambert a few feet in front of the stage, Kelley joked, “The question everybody asks is, ‘Do you know Blake Shelton? Yes, and he’s an asshole.”
The good-natured Shelton beamed at the mock insult — and at other humorous barbs thrown his way throughout the evening.
With Lady A member Hillary Scott missing, Kelley and Haywood did a medley of three of Davidson’s co-written hits: “We Owned the Night,” “I Don’t Want This Night to End” and “The One That Got Away.”
