Lady Antebellum Getting Used to the Guy/Girl Thing
During the past year, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott has joked about what it's like being the lone girl on a tour bus with a bunch of guys, including bandmates Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley. So, in fairness, The Boot decided to turn the tables, asking Charles what it's like to have a woman smack dab in the midst of a whole lot of men on the bus.
"It's different ... you have to be cognizant of the fact that she is the only girl, and she's not used to having all these guys around," Charles tells The Boot. "And early on -- you know, with guys -- you kind of argue with them and fuss at 'em, and it's no big deal."
But Charles and the boys on the bus soon came to realize, girls are just hardwired to be more sensitive. "A couple times, the guys would [argue], and guys don't think anything of it -- and Hillary would be kind of sensitive to that kind of stuff. So it took a good year before we all kind of understood."
Likewise, it took Hillary about that same amount of time to understand how guys tend to converse with each other when they're hanging with their own.
"Obviously now, she doesn't get as embarrassed by things somebody says like she used to," Charles notes with a sheepish grin. "She's kind of used to all the vulgar and crude talk that goes around in a band. But it's been great. Honestly ... I think the three of us are closer now than we've ever been."
