Band members Lady A are looking after their own.

On Aug. 4, the country music band announced that they were postponing their Request Line Tour to make it more member-friendly. Charles Kelley can focus on his sobriety. 

“Being with our fans on the road is our greatest joy. It was therefore a hard, but crucial decision to make,” says the band. Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, wrote in a statement posted to Instagram. “We are a band, but more importantly…we’re family. We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety. So right now in order to be the healthiest, strongestAnd most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together.”

Lady A said that while postponing the tour was not an easy decision, it was the right choice for the group. Lady A stated, “It’s too early to make this decision on the road, but it is what we believe will be best for us in many years.”
