(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
I think this issue of People Country should’ve been called “The Houses That Built Lady Antebellum.” Or, rather, “The Houses That Lady Antebellum Built.” Because it’s all about the new (or renovated to feel like new) homes that Hillary Scott, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley have moved into. And there are pictures and pictures of all the little touches that can make a house a home and will make you very inspired to copy their look. And Scott admits that she didn’t go all high-end when she was decorating her 3,700-square-foot bungalow. She did it instead with flea-market finds and deals from good ol’ TJ Maxx. And you can see inside the 2,700-square-foot colonial Kelley calls “not too big, so it’s manageable and perfect for us.” (“Us” being Kelley and his wife Cassie.) Dave Haywood has the smallest place, at just 900 square feet, but it’s an urban loft, so the cool factor is huge.
