If you stayed up late on Saturday night, you had a chance to see one of the hottest acts in country music, Lady Antebellum perform as the musical guests on Saturday Night Live. If you were in bed early and didn’t have your DVR set, well here is what you missed.
It’s not very often you will see a country act on the late night show. In the 36 years the show has been the air only 11 other country acts have been featured. Those acts include:
