Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Lady Antebellum’s Dave Haywood.
“We will be married this year,” Haywood told PEOPLE before performing at the Oreo Cookies 100th birthday celebration in Los Angeles last week. What’s more, he adds: “I enjoy the wedding planning and setting up where everything is going to be.”
Haywood, 29, popped the question to girlfriend Kelli Cashiola, 29, a VP of Marketing/Brand Management for Warner Music Nashville, this past December with an elaborate winter-wonderland proposal.
Haywood will be the third and final member of Lady Antebellum to tie the knot, closely following band mate Hillary Scott’s surprise January wedding to the band’s drummer Chris Tyrrell.
“[Dave and I] were having a conversation the other day about learning that you have someone to lean on and you can divvy up responsibilities,” said band mate Charles Kelley, who married longtime girlfriend Cassie McConnell in 2009.
“I think being in the band really helped prepare all of us for [marriage] because we all have roles that we fall in to naturally,” Scott added.
But just because his fellow Lady Antebellum members have more marital experience does not mean Haywood is going to blindly follow their leads.
Joked the groom-to-be: “I’m not taking their advice.”
In this interview, Hillary chats about Charles, Dave, and new husband Chris. She talks about where she keeps all those Grammy’s and how the group makes important decisions without bumping heads. Be sure to check out this interview!
It was a quarter after 3, and I needed Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott to call me now.
But this was her day off, and, the newlywed got tied up running errands in Nashville before her bestselling country-pop trio returns to the road for a month, including a concert Sunday at Target Center. Still, Scott, 25, squeezed in time for a phone conversation about her new husband, her bandmates and all their Grammys.
Q Lady A won five Grammys in 2011 [including song and record of the year for "Need You Now"] and one this year, for best country album. Compare those experiences.
A Last year, we were shocked beyond belief. Our lives and careers changed forever because of that. This year, we were so excited to be invited and to have that nomination, but we didn’t expect to win. We thought Taylor [Swift] or Jason Aldean, for sure. When they called our name, those surprised looks on our faces were 100 percent true.
Q Where do you keep your Grammys?
A I have mine in the upstairs bedroom that is going to turn into a writing room. I also have one on a shelf downstairs.
Q Did winning all those Grammys help or hurt when it came to creating the new album “Own the Night”?
A It definitely added pressure, but it also added an excitement and another level of confidence. It really lit a fire under us. I think the pressure came in when we picked the first single.
Q That single, “Just a Kiss,” ended up No. 1 on the country charts. What is it like to sing it every night with Charles Kelley, knowing your husband [Chris Tyrrell] is sitting behind you on the drum kit?
A Honestly, I don’t ever really think about it. We’re acting. I look at Charles like the big brother I never had.
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.
