Billboard honors Lady Antebellum

Lady Antebellum are celebrating after winning the breakthrough award at the 2012 Billboard Touring Awards in New York.

The country act had their first headlining Own The Night tour this year, selling more than a million tickets and visiting 11 countries.

"I think for us, once you've found out ... who had won it the previous two years with Lady Gaga and Jason Aldean, I think it definitely made it even mean a little bit more," Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley said. "Hopefully, we're going to be in that company of big touring acts."

The Nashville trio wasn't able to make it to New York for the awards because a storm left travel too dangerous.

Kenny Chesney made the trip, though, and accepted two awards at the Roosevelt Hotel: the Road Warrior award and the top package tour. The Road Warrior honour is bestowed on an artist who shows uncommon work ethic, professionalism and artistic integrity on the road.

Kenny won his eighth package award for his Brothers Of The Sun stadium tour with Tim McGraw, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and Jake Owen.

Charles said Lady Antebellum, which will release a documentary about the tour on December 4, paid close attention while on the road with Kenny.

"I think that's one thing that we've learned was you've got to invest in the show," Charles said.

"When you're sitting there and you're putting it together and you're seeing those costs pile up, and you're going, 'Ok, I'd love to have a lift here to bring up the piano,' well, that's going to cost you this much. You've got to make those decisions... Hopefully, we've set the bar for future tours."

Other awards were given to Roger Waters (top tour), Bruce Springsteen (top draw), Neil Diamond (Legend of Live) and Lady Gaga (Eventful fan's choice).
