GRAMMY winning trio Lady A took the stage at the 2022 ACM Awards for a moving performance of their newest single, “What A Song Can Do.” 

The performance was in honor of St. Jude and ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music, which is dedicated to improving lives through the power of music. 

“We’re on the big main stage, so we’ve got a lot of ground to cover in our performance, but we’re performing our brand-new single, ‘What A Song Can Do’ and it’s tying into ACM Lifting Lives and St. Jude,” Lady A’s Hillary Scott told Audacy’s Katie & Company ahead of their performance. ”So, you’ll hear a lot about what they’re doing and their philanthropic efforts. But, ACM Lifting Lives and St. Jude and learning about what they do there and ‘What A Song Can Do’ will come out of that.” 

“So, it feels like a pretty appropriate message, because when we’re singing these songs it’s not about our songs, it’s about the other artists and the other songs that have become the soundtrack of our lives,” she went on to say. “That’s really what this is highlighting and how powerful those songs are.”

“What A Song Can Do” was written by Lady A’s Charles Kelley, Laura Veltz, Ryan Hurd, and Sam Ellis. The song appears on Lady A’s latest album, What A Song Can Do (Chapter One).

“We have been overfilled with gratitude after releasing this album and we don’t take it lightly that after eight albums our music still resonates with so many people,” Kelley recently shared. “This song is the summation of where our hearts are right now and how much music can really pull us through in times of need. We love writing songs about lost love and things like that, but I feel like our favorite material comes with a strong positive message.”

Lady A is scheduled to play at various fairs and festivals throughout the summer. Click HERE to see if they’re coming to a city near you.
