Lady Antebellum has received an "extra crispy" request.
Ok, let me explain...Hillary, Charles and Dave are scheduled to perform at the upcoming Association of Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchisees gathering this week…and a rock-n-roller is asking them to make a political statement on behalf of the chickens.
Chrissie Hynde, the famous front-woman for the rock band The Pretenders, reached out to Lady A in a "personal" letter to the trio. But she sent it through PETA, the animal rights organization, who has posted portions of that letter on their website. In the letter, Chrissie pleaded with the trio to save the chickens. Chrissie stated, "KFC has refused…to eliminate its most cruel and archaic slaughter practices, so my friends at PETA and I are hoping that you will use your unique position to appeal to the company." She described some graphic details to help illustrate her point, and added, quote, "Would you consider asking KFC executives to make a few changes to end the worst abuses of chickens?"
At this time, there’s been no response or official statement from Lady A. The Grammy Award winning trio is scheduled to perform at the KFC event in San Diego on Thursday.
