Lady A won’t be touring anytime soon.

The country band shared on social media on Thursday that member Charles Kelley is on his “journey to sobriety,” and as a result, their “Request Line” tour will be postponed.

They wrote: “We are a band, but more importantly…we are a family.”

The group, formerly known as Lady Antebellum, consists of Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood.

They continued, “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 our team of professionals to get through this together.”
