Lady Antebellum’s Holidays Look Good

“It’s All New Again,” Says Charles Kelley

When Lady Antebellum played the WUSN Stars & Strings benefit show in Chicago last week, I had a chance to talk with the band backstage — before they took the stage, and before they took off for the Thanksgiving holiday. And now that all three band members are raising three kids — and there are three more on the way — they all seemed to think that a baby changes everything.

“The holidays are so much more enjoyable now. It’s all new again,” Charles Kelley told me. “And it’s all about Ward.” This year, Kelley, his wife Cassie and their almost two-year-old son will be part of a bigger family celebration. “Every other year, we go up to the north Georgia mountains where my dad grew up, and we’ve got about 50-60 cousins there. And now all their kids will be there. This is our first time going up there with our little one. So he’s gonna get to meet about 15 little cousins. They’ll just play in the yard out at the farm. It’s gonna be so fun for all of us.”
