Hillary sat down with Charles and Dave with the Associated Press and revealed some wedding details, including that her colors are green and purple! She also gets some advice from Charles who jokes she should get married onstage! Check out the video below!
It’s one of the most celebrated stories in country music. Two college buddies, both pursuing solo careers, joined with the daughter of famed country singer Linda Davis to form an award-winning trio that has now gone on to sell more than five million albums. But as it turns out, the real story of Lady Antebellum involves an early struggle to learn to get along — and an end result that leaves the threesome as a close family unit with an indestructible bond.
“The first two years were really hard,” Charles Kelley admits (quote via Access Hollywood). “The last two years have been really easy.”
“It took us time to learn how to communicate with each other the best way and each of us receives it,” adds Hillary Scott. “We actually — I don’t feel ashamed to say — actually had someone come and mediate a couple of times.”
The two lead singers, Charles and Hillary, were both outspoken and opinionated, while multi-instrumentalist Dave Haywood, tended to be more introspective, keeping to himself. The end result was three people who stopped communicating, which is when they wisely brought in an outsider to teach them how to effectively share with each other.
“I think it’s honestly a really smart way to work through things,” Hillary asserts. “[We used] not really a therapist, but a communications specialist. We figured out how to argue and work through things, but argue respectfully. We agree on a lot of things — on most things — but on the things that we didn’t, it was figuring out how to work through those things. Time and a couple of sessions with that mediator and we figured things out.”

Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott was all smiles and giggles when the country darling and her bandmates gave an interview to KMPS Radio’s Candy + Potter morning show yesterday, and why not? She recently got engaged to fellow musician Chris Tyrell. With Lady A’s album ‘Own the Night’ coming out on September 13 and the nuptial planning underway, she’s a happy, busy little bee.
So, the ladies want to know, what sort of “tacky” traditions will — or won’t — Hillary allow at her wedding? Will she take a Southern-style, bride only engagement photo? “No way,” she vows. “I don’t want to wear my dress hours upon hours, months before I get married. I want to wear my dress on my wedding day!”
Will she do the money dance? “No way,” she says. The only money this bride will sway her hips to is a concert ticket.
What about the groom removing the garter? “Hot!” the trio’s Dave Haywood chimes in. “I do think it’s a fun tradition,” Hillary concedes. “I’ll definitely throw the bouquet and do the garter.”
And there you have it. Some on-the-fly wedding decisions for Lady A’s leading lady!
The trio are in the middle of their summer headlining tour promoting their upcoming album, while Hillary’s hubby-to-be Chris is on the Brad Paisley H2O II tour, drumming for opening act Eden’s Edge. How delightfully hectic.
Lady Antebellum’s latest hit, “Just a Kiss,” captures the nerve-racking moment that newly dating couples and potential lovers always dream about—the goodnight kiss. Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley says the song was at least partly inspired by the early days of newly engaged Lady Antebellum member Hillary Scott’s relationship with her fiancé, Chris Tyrrell. “We all kind of pull from different moments we’ve been in in our life,” Charles tells CountryWeekly.com. “Hillary obviously was in a great relationship at the time, because now she’s engaged and so she was kind of feeling those butterflies at the time we wrote the song.”
Calling Chris “a great guy,” Charles says, “I knew [the engagement] was going to happen pretty soon. They were getting pretty serious. Hillary’s one of those people who . . . she’s always been looking for that right person for a long time. She’s not one of those wild and crazy people. She’s a homebody and someone who I think has always been ready to find that person of her dreams and so I’m excited that it’s all happened.”
“Just a Kiss” was also inspired by the butterflies Charles felt when he met his wife, Cassie. “I had a similar feeling, too, with my wife, Cassie, the first night we met. I remembered being out the first night with Cassie and thinking, ‘This is different, and I don’t want to give any wrong impression. I don’t want to make the wrong move because this feels like something special.’ We started talking about that and going back and forth with different experiences when we wrote the song.”
The trio is currently on tour and finishing work on their next album, Own the Night, which is slated for a Sept. 13 release. “Life is good in our world right now,” Charles concludes. “Everybody seems really happy and seems artistically fulfilled and personally fulfilled.”

“The first 18 months of your career are gonna be the craziest,” singer Hilary Scott told Broussard. “The first 18 months of our career was nuts, but then you just hit pockets of busy moving forward. Your gauge of normal will change, like ‘There’s only five interviews today?’”
