Lady A are postponing their “Request Line” tour to focus on band member Charles Kelley’s journey to sobriety.
The country trio released a statement on social media Thursday, writing: “We are a band. But more importantly… we’re family. We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety.
“So, 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.”
Lady A continued, “It’s early on this road, but we are determined to do what will best set us up for many more years together.”
The band added, “We’re grateful for your patience.”
Lady A said ticket holders will be contacted in the coming days with more information.
They concluded, “We’re looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet!”
