Lady Antebellum lights up the Sprint Center with popular country-pop-rock music

Saturday’s show at the Sprint Center was a portrait of country music, a genre in a state of transition. The headliner was Lady Antebellum, a trio whose songs are rooted in pop and rock more than country. The openers were two performers, one who represent a large portion of its present — country boys singing about the country life — and one whose sound draws from country music’s past and deserves a place in its future.
