The Nashville trio makes us want to drop everything and set up a playdate.
Some days, we’ve got total faith in our abilities to be (ahem, semi) perfect moms and dads. Other days, we feel like a commercial for Parenthood: Real Life Edition. Now, next time disaster strikes and Play-Doh winds up on the walls, the blender malfunctions, and we run out of biscuits to pack up for our kids at lunch, we’re turning to country music sensation, Lady Antebellum. Comprised of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood, the award-winning trio are also all now parents and sharing their experiences with their fans. We are all just sighing in adoration over their fantastic family ‘grams. Their adorable kids clearly play leading roles in the busy musicians’ lives.
As Charles Kelley said at a recent CMA Fest Press Conference in Nashville, “Yeah, it’s funny to say that I’m a father. It makes me feel so grown up. As cliché as it sounds, it does move really fast...Now that he’s 16 months old, he’s out here on this Lady Antebellum tour waking up in the middle of the night going, ‘Where the hell am I,’ and crying. It’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, we’ve got this whole new cycle of kid that’s very aware of where he is.’ It moves so fast, and we want to be present.” Below, a few of our favorite aw-infused moments of Lady A and the pip-squeak gang!
From snuggles on the couch reading bedtime stories to joining the little ones scooting around backstage on tour, you—to steal a line from the band’s hit single—you sure do look good, guys.
