The country outfit formerly known as Lady Antebellum appropriated the Black blues singer’s stage name earlier this year.
Anita White is accusing the band of trademark infringement and unfair competition.
“Black lives, names, experiences, work, art — they all matter,” says the Black blues singer.
The country group claims Anita “Lady A” White wanted $10 million to share the name.
The country music group never reached out to the original Lady A prior to their name change announcement.
Country trio has operated under the name for 14 years.
