Lady Antebellum announces charity to help children in need

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

They play big shows to thousands of adoring fans, but the members of country music supergroup Lady Antebellum say their biggest joy comes from helping others.

Monday, they announced plans to create a global charity initiative.

"We'd always wanted to get involved, and there are so many different things - and there are so many different charities out there in the world. I think to finally feel like we all collectively have one goal, this is something we can all three agree on. And we know we can hopefully make a difference," said Lady Antebellum member Charles Kelley.

The initiative is called Lady Aid, and its mission is to bring awareness to and generate support for children at the local, national and international level who cannot help themselves.

"A lot of times we forget getting things is really fun, and it's exciting, but there's nothing better than giving someone a gift or a hug or anything and seeing the pure joy that comes on their face from it. There's nothing better than that," said Lady Antebellum member Hillary Scott.

At the end of Monday's announcement, leaders of the Country Music Association presented Lady Antebellum with the 2012 CMA international recognition award for the group's work as ambassadors for country music around the world.
