Here’s a feel-good story: Three weeks ago, country supergroup Lady Antebellum launched its “Own the Prom Night” contest in which a winning high school would land the trio as performers at its formal this spring. Fans sent in videos explaining why their school deserved to own the night with Lady A, but after hearing the story of Henryville High School in Henryville, IN — which was ravaged by a tornado earlier this month — schools across the country began to submit videos on Henryville High’s behalf instead. The winning submission came from neighboring Silver Creek High School. Watch it below. (And yes, that one kind-hearted kid kinda reminds us of Friday Night Lights‘ Landry, too.)
Unfortunately, Lady Antebellum can’t make Henryville’s scheduled prom next month because of a previous commitment. Instead, the group will throw a bigger event on May 16 in nearby Louisville, KY for the school’s juniors and seniors followed by a benefit for the community. Watch Lady A’s announcement below. And look forward to the YouTube videos of Charles Kelley dancing with many somebodys on May 17.
