The wait is over Lady A fans! Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley have confirmed that the group’s previously announced hiatus has officially come to an end.
“We don’t really know how to take a break,” Scott said during a press conference late last week.
“[So] we’ve been working and writing some already. We have the fall blocked off for the bulk of it so we’re not in a rush, because we want it to be right. I think we’re giving ourselves the gift of time to find the songs and write the songs. So I’ve been singing vocals this week, but there’s really no timeline. When it’s ready, we’ll get it out.”
Each member of the group used their time off to pursue outside musical projects — a solo album for Charles Kelley, a family gospel project for Scott and producing credits for Dave Haywood — but now that time is coming to an end.
Kelley acknowledged that they finally had the luxury to record at a comfortable pace saying, “We’re excited to get back and work on the next record. We’ve already started. We’ve always been in a time crunch [before now] and it’s not good to make music in a time crunch. It’s fun to see what we can come up with. I just hope we actually deliver something special.”
