 That was fast. LADY ANTEBELLUM gets to keep their new name,LADY A. . . although they WILL be sharing it with Anita White, the Seattle blues singer who's been going by the stage name of Lady A for over 20 years.

Anita told "USA Today" that the band reached out, and HILLARY SCOTT even apologized. Quote, "We talked about attempting to co-exist but didn't discuss what that would look like, but I was clear I'm keeping my name."

The band postsed a photo of a Zoom call they did with Anita on Monday. They wrote, "Today, we connected privately with the artist Lady A. Transparent, honest, and authentic conversations were had. We are excited to share we are moving forward with positive solutions and common ground. The hurt is turning into hope. More to come."

(I doubt the "more to come" will mention a financial settlement, but you have to think Hillary and the boys opened the checkbook.)
