Lady Antebellum Members Deliver UGA Commencement Speech

Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood gave the undergraduate commencement speech at their alma matter, the University of Georgia. “There was a bit of a risk for us to go to Nashville, but at the same time … it wasn’t really that big of a risk at all. It was a calculated risk,” Haywood said. “Now you have a degree and now you can take a big risk because you have an amazing diploma … Be open to things you haven’t even dreamed of.” “There is more than one clear path and direction,” Kelley added, before concluding his speech with: “Good luck. I wish you all well, I hope you can find your dream job, but just be happy, find your purpose, [and] be nice to mom and dad.” The duo also performed a rendition of Ray Charles’ “Georgia on My Mind.” Both Kelley and Haywood received bachelor’s degrees in business administration from UGA in 2004.
