It’s been a busy few years for Lady Antebellum who released their album 747 and are in the midst of headlining their huge Wheels Up Tour with Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt. They’re personal lives have also been busy with Charles Kelley expecting a baby, and both Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood having tots of their own.
To celebrate all of their personal and professional successes, the trio are planning…to take a break!
Hillary Scott opened up to E! News about what’s next for the band.
Everything’s obviously always in forward motion, but since our first album we’ve not really given ourselves the gift of time, to just get in the room and write together until we feel like we have everything,” says the “Need You Now” singer. We’ve just made so many albums in such a short period of time, and we’re proud of them, and what we’ve done in our career, and what we’ve said with them—but we’ve never given ourselves the gift of time. So, that’s what this next season is for us, spending time with our families, and really relishing in this successful year for us, and focusing on where we’re headed next.”
Although they’ll be on a break, she admits that they’ll use the time to both write and recharge their batteries with family and friends.
So, I’ll be cooking a lot in my kitchen and having people over, and just honestly making up for lost time with memories with everyone we love. That’s the hard thing about what we do is just being away from our friends and family.”
And when will Lady A be back? She says it probably won’t be THAT long.
Knowing us, it will probably be a lot shorter than what we probably set out for it to be, because we can’t ever really stop. But yeah, there’s no timeline, and that feels so nice to know. When we feel like it’s ready we’ll go to work.
