INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Grammy Award-winning country music trio Lady Antebellum performed a "mini-prom" for students of a southern Indiana town that was devastated by a tornado in early March.
Henryville Junior-Senior High School students won an online contest to bring in the top-selling act, which also played a full benefit concert later Wednesday at the KFC Yum Center in nearby Louisville, Kentucky.
The band -- Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and David Haywood -- played a two-song acoustic set for the students, who enjoyed music and dancing for about an hour beforehand and were given free tickets to the night's concert.
Henryville was hit March 2 by two tornadoes -- one packing 175 mph winds -- on a day when storms killed 13 people in Indiana and 24 in Kentucky.
