Lady A's Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley To Give Commencement Speech
Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum will deliver the commencement address at the University of Georgia in Athens.
The country music stars will speak at the spring undergraduate ceremony on May 4.
Kelley, 36, graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from UGA, where he was a member of the Nu Zeta chapter of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Haywood, 35, also graduated from UGA.
Two years later, Kelley and Haywood teamed up with Hillary Scott to form Lady Antebellum.
"We are excited to welcome Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood back to their alma mater," said UGA President Jere W. Morehead, in a release.
"They are multi-talented musicians who have impressed the world, and the University of Georgia is very proud of all they have accomplished. We look forward to their inspiring comments."
UGA alumni include members of rock band R.E.M. and country star Trisha Yearwood (who dropped out).
