Blues artist Lady A tells TODAY’s Sheinelle Jones that she felt dismissed by the country group of the same name during legal discussions about their shared moniker, sparked after the band, formerly known as Lady Antebellum, changed its name due to its ties to slavery. “I’m not changing my mind,” says the singer, whose real name is Anita White. “They need to change their name. It’s that simple.”
