Anita White, the real Lady A said this on her Facebook page today.

Lady Antebellum seriously? You just discovered your name had racist connotation so talk to "your black friends? Did you really say that?

And now you want yo change your name to Lady A and your people didnt bother again to check and see there is black female artist 20+ years in the business?

I am Lady A

She wrote yesterday.

Thank you to each and everyone who has texted, sent emails, PM'd me to let me know about Lady Antebellum now High-jacking my professional name by changing theirs to Lady A because they didn't bother to do their homework on a name you chose when you started 14 years ago.

I have been Lady A for 20+ years, my Business is Lady A Productions, LLC and you can guarantee the first Cease and Desist notification I get from you will land your asses in court.

I've been working all day and hear this mess in messages and texts.. I'm not pissed, I'm just tired ..,. I had to rewrite because my Producers reminded me of who I am.

I AM Lady A... God gave me my platform and He didn't bring me this far to leave me. thank you all for your concern... You can't take my name.
