Tuesday was one of those nights where, even if you didn't know a single Lady Antebellum song, you'd get caught up in the moment and have a good time. I sure did.

But to not know a single one of the group's hit songs must mean you've never turned on the radio. Ever.

The hits just kept on coming as everyone on staged rocked out and looked right at home in front of the large RodeoHouston crowd. For the fifth consecutive year at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the seven-time Grammy-winning trio danced away with our hearts.

 A pregnant Hillary Scott sparkled on stage as Charles Kelly rocked out all around Reliant, jumping on a safety rail for an up-close and personal performance.

The 12-set list included some of the first hit songs that put the band on the charts as well as their new single, "Downtown," which fans already knew and screamed the words to in unison.

Just hours before the show, the band's Twitter account reached 1 million followers giving @RODEOHOUSTON a shout-out and promising to try a few new songs out on the crowd of 56,260. 

Probably the new one they were referring to was the classic 1969 "Honky Tonk Woman" cover, originally sung by the Rolling Stones, with silhouettes of go-go dancers as the backdrop.

Not your typical country music scene, but the HLSR is anything but typical.

Set List:

"Looking for a Good Time"

"Our Kinda Love"

"Perfect Day"

"Dancing Away"

"Downtown"

"Love Don't Live Here"

"Just a Kiss"

"American Honey"

"Run to You"

"Honky Tonk Woman"

"Need You Now"

"We Own the Night"
