Lady A will no longer be hitting the road on their Request Line Tour in an effort to support Charles Kelley’s new sober lifestyle.
The award-winning country music trio, composed of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood, took to social media on Thursday morning (Aug. 4) to share the unfortunate tour postponement with fans.
“We have decided to postpone our Request Line Tour until next year,” the group said in a statement collectively. ”Being on the road with our fans is our greatest joy, so it was a hard but important decision to make.”
The “Summer State Of Mind” singers will take this time to focus on their families as Kelley works to become sober.
“We are a band, but more importantly…we’re family,” Lady A shared. ”We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety. So, right now in order to be the healthiest, strongest and most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together.”
Lady A went on to graciously thank fans for their kindness and understanding.
”It’s early on this road, but we are determined to do what will best set us up for many more years together. We’re grateful for your patience,” the three-time CMA Vocal Group Of The Year winners added.
Fans who purchased tickets can reach out to their point of purchase for new ticket information as well as refunds if they can no longer make it.
“We’re looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet!” Lady A concluded.
The 21-date Request Line Tour, which was slated to kick off with back-to-back nights at Nashville’s The Ryman on Aug. 13, also featured support from Dave Barnes.
Lady A is a five-time GRAMMY-winning trio. Formed in 2006, the group is best known for hits such as “Need You Now,” “American Honey,” “Bartender,” “I Run To You,” and more.
To date, Lady A has earned 11 No.1 singles, sold 18 million albums, 34 million tracks, and raked in five billion digital streams.
