Lady Antebellum appear to be on top of their game, but after they conclude their “Wheels Up Tour,” the trio plans on taking a bit of a break. Charles Kelley dropped the bomb in a RollingStone interview.
“We’re going to step away for a little while,” Kelley tells Rolling Stone Country. “As a band, we’ve talked about wanting to get off the hamster wheel for a little bit and let the fans miss us for a second. We want to spend some time to write a record like we did for our first record. But it’s always been go, go, go, so we’ll try to get reinspired a little bit.”
“We can take some time off and not feel like we’re going to lose it all. We felt like that in the past, if we left off the throttle. So, yeah, we’re not quite as hot as we were around ‘Need You Now,’ but we realize the fans are there,” he says. “It’s all about the music, so we need to step away and make the best music we can. That’s the only way it’s going to sustain itself.”
My bet is it’s not all about the music. Charles has a new baby on the way, and Dave and Hillary both have bambinos on the road. Some much needed family time is in store as well.
