Thursday, July 15, 2021
– Lady A's Charles Kelley, who suffered appendicitis last weekend, causing the trio to go back off the road, said the group would resume touring this Friday in Dallas.
"I am healthy," Kelley said in an Instagram video. "I am back." He said doctors at the hospital where he was at Minneapolis put him on "heavy antibiotics, so he did not need surgery. He then went to doctors at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville and was given the green light to resume touring.
"Coming for you Dallas this friday and Saturday,"he said on Instagram. The group is playing Billy Bob's.
Lady A was slated to play Minneapolis last Saturday night, its first concert in 16 months.
"Hey guys - sitting here in the hospital and so bummed to have missed performing our first show back in Minnesota, not to mention in 16 months - that's an understatement," Kelley said on Instagram. "But the ol' appendix had other plans. didn't even know what an appendix was until friday when it sent me to the ER. Love y'all and be back soon enough."

And why does the new "Heart Break" sound so good on the ears? Well, it's simple, but complicated.
Hillary Scott is simply a wonderfully sincere singer. ...
Six albums into its career, Lady Antebellum pretty much has the formula down pat. Either Hillary Scott or long and lanky Charles Kelley assumes lead vocals with Dave Haywood also providing vocals plus guitars and mandolin in a bunch of songs easy on the ears with a story often involving a lust for love.
The typical song ("Lie With Me," for example) starts with Kelly or Scott taking a stanza, followed by the other with both then tackling the chorus together. This has worked quite well ...
