When Lady Antebellum first started out as a group they would take writing breaks at the chain restaurant known as Cracker Barrel. During one visit, when the trio had still yet to come up with their band name, Charles Kelley says Dave Haywood suggested they pick a name right from the menu, such as Sunrise Sampler.

Most likely for the better Charles, Dave and Hillary passed on the Sunrise Sampler name and agreed on Lady Antebellum – the name that has seen an ample amount of success.

@CrackerBarrel's had a lot of influence on us…almost even named the band ‘Sunrise Sampler’. #CBMusic
