Lady Antebellum recently wrapped the second leg of their You Look Good Tour that had them traveling through Amsterdam, England, Ireland and Scotland.
While the trio was out on tour, rock icon Tom Petty passed away of cardiac arrest, back here in the States on Oct. 2. The band, who was influenced by the rocker, paid tribute to Petty by singing a powerful rendition of his song, “Learning to Fly” on their Manchester and Dublin stops.
Petty was best known as the frontman for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. They had several hits over the years, including “Breakdown,” “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” and “American Girl,” among others.
Lady A took to Facebook to post a video that combines their two performances into one stirring version of the song.
The video starts off on stage at the Manchester performance, with Charles Kelley taking lead on vocals and then cuts to the trio standing in the crowd at the Dublin venue.
“This one’s for you, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Rest easy. Thanks for the incredible influence you’ve had on both us and the music world over the years,” they posted.
