Lady A Babies Will Be “In Good Hands”

Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood Leaving Little Ones at Home

Like so many moms and dads out there, the folks in Lady Antebellum have to make sacrifices for their families. And sometimes it comes down to the road or the family.

You can’t always have it all, even when you’re a celebrity.

So now that the band is hitting the road for their string of shows in Europe and Down Under, Hillary Scott and husband/drummer Chris Tyrrell will be leaving their 18-month-old baby girl Eisele Kaye at home.

“Do you have a box of Kleenex before I start talking about it?” Scott said at a recent press conference about the tour. “My little girl is not going. It’s just logistically a nightmare. But she will be in good hands. My mom will spoil her rotten, and I’ll have to come home and probably rewrite a lot of bad habits. I’ll probably guilt buy at all the baby boutiques for my daughter because we’ve gone away from her.”

Scott added that her dad keeps reminding her Eisele won’t even remember this no-babies-on-board tour.

The band’s Dave Haywood is in the same boat. His 4-month-old son Cash Van is sitting this one out, too.

“Those are the tough parts. Those are the sacrifices. But my wife will be home with Cash, and when we get over there, we’ll probably forget about it when we’re sleeping in ’til noon,” Haywood joked.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
