Lady A & Lady A Reveal They’re “Moving Forward With Positive Solutions” in Name Dispute

The battle of the Lady A’s will seemingly come to a peaceful close.

On Monday, the country trio Lady A–which used to be Lady Antebellum–and the Seattle-based blues singer Lady A (real name: Anita White) both shared the same screengrab on their Instagrams revealing that they’d held a virtual summit of sorts to discuss their name similarities.

“Today, we connected privately with the artist Lady A. Transparent, honest and authentic conversations were had,” they said in a caption. “We are excited to share we are moving forward with positive solutions and common ground. The hurt is turning into hope. More to come.”

Last week, White said she was considering taking legal action to force the country trio to change its name yet again after they got rid of the “Antebellum” because of its associations with slavery. “They’re using the name because of a Black Lives Matter incident that, for them, is just a moment in time,” the 61-year-old White said. “If it mattered, it would have mattered to them before. It shouldn’t have taken George Floyd to die for them to realize that their name had a slave reference to it.”
