For Lady Antebellum, life as one of country music’s leading trios hasn’t always stayed the same. But staying on the same page and in a healthy state of mind is important for Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott.
The group tells Willie Geist on TODAY’s Sunday Sitdown that group therapy helps them to find “balance.” “We’ve even done a lot recently… It is nice because I do think when bands don’t talk and let out some of that stuff,” Charles says, “it’s nice to have a little unbiased professional that’s like ‘Right there, man, your tone, you see why that probably hurts their feelings?’ and you’re like ‘Aw, man, okay.’” Adds Dave, “It’s like marriage counseling.” Among them, Lady A has a total of six children, each of whom accompanies them on the road. And that’s also made their touring life different. “On stage, it’s still the same, but backstage is a completely different world. Kids running around… the number of devices, pack-n-plays, toys, inflatable pools,” Dave says.
Lady Antebellum’s Summer Plays On Tour with co-headliner Darius Rucker begins Thursday (July 19) in Toronto, Canada.
