Lady A Marriages Provide ‘Wonderful’ Writing Inspiration
Now that all three members of Lady Antebellum are sporting wedding rings, they’re starting to see some changes in their routines.
Dave Haywood is the most recent member to tie the knot, marrying record executive Kelli Cashiola in April. Only a few months earlier, Hillary Scott walked down the aisle with musician Chris Tyrell, joining Charles Kelley — who married publicist Cassie McConnell in June 2009 — in wedded bliss. While good for their personal lives, how is this change affecting their life as a band?
“Well, instead of having ESPN on the TV, it’s more about home improvement shows!” Kelley said backstage at the CMA Music Festival Thursday (June 7). “Once you get domesticated, that’s what you watch.”
“It’s wonderful,” Scott adds. “All three of us are in really happy places, and that definitely finds a way into our songwriting, but our next album isn’t going to be just full of happy, lovey songs. We still have a past to pull from. But it makes being on the road together — it’s always been fun, but now the families continue to grow.”
The trio’s road life is going to take them all over the globe this year. Their Own the Night 2012 World Tour is headed to Canada, Europe and even Australia before concluding this fall. Keep up with their tour schedule here.
