The Grammy-winning country trio Lady A has announced that its upcoming tour is being postponed to allow band member Charles Kelley time to focus on his sobriety.

The group was set to start the tour on Aug. 13 in Nashville, but in a social media post, the band said the tour would be postponed until next year.

“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,” the band’s statement said.

The band is composed of Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood and was previously known as Lady Antebellum before changing their name in 2020.

Box office reports submitted to Pollstar for Lady A include an Aug. 13, 2021, show at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich., that sold 6,330 tickets and grossed $254,060. The show featured support from Carly Pearce, Niko Moon and Tenille Arts.
