By the time Lady Antebellum signed off at the Mane Stage with “We Owned the Night,” the temperature had dipped back into double-digits after hitting a high of 104 on Saturday – the first time temps broke 100 degrees during a Stagecoach festival.
The festival’s previous heat record of 98 degrees was set on April 28, 2012.
The trio of Hillary Scott, 7-months pregnant – her baby girl is due at the end of July – Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood opened their Stagecoach set with “Downtown,” the first single from their upcoming album, “Golden,” due out May 7.
The song – Miranda Lambert had first dibs on the tune but lifted her hold on “Downtown” when she got word Lady A wanted to include the song on their new album – recently hit No. 1 on the charts.
Pulling the trigger on their hottest song so early in the set caught some in the crowd off guard.
