NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Grammy-winning country trio Lady A has announced that its upcoming tour is being postponed to allow band member Charles Kelley time to focus on his sobriety.

The Grammy-winning band is made up of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood.

The group was set to start the tour on Aug. 13 in Nashville, but in a social media post, the band said the tour would be postponed until next year.

“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,” the band's statement said.

The band was previously known as Lady Antebellum before changing their name in 2020.

The three members of the band, who are all white, said at the time they were regretful and embarrassed for not taking into consideration the word’s associations with slavery.
