Lady Antebellum spend long hours on their tour bus while crisscrossing the country perform for thousands of fans, so that leaves some time to catch up on their favorite television shows.
Lady A’s Hillary Scott has a few favorite shows she and husband Chris Tyrrell have been watching. “My husband and I have been binge-watching The Last Man on Earth with Will Forte,” reveals Hillary. “It’s really funny. And then I’m just counting down the days, like I’m not so bad that I have a countdown on my phone, but until This is Us is back…I miss that show.” Hillary doesn’t have to wait long, since This is Us returns September 26th at 9pm ET on ABC.
Dave Haywood agrees with Hillary’s choices, but is also a big fan of the hit Netflix show, Stranger Things, which arrives October 27th.
Lady A’s latest hit song, “You Look Good,” is making its way to the top of the country charts.
Kip Moore has created a documentary with one of his best friends (video director PJ Brown) to detail the months he took off to travel the world, as well as the process of making his new album. The Journey to Slowheart begins with footage in his hometown at his mother’s house in Georgia. He drives around the town reminiscing on the good times with his parents and siblings. It is apparent that there are several key people in his life that have really had an influence on him and his views. He talks about his sister and “biggest hero” who was paralyzed from the waist down after a bad car accident when she was in high school. She describes Kip as being the most “caring brother who would do anything to help her.” He talks about his father, who passed away about 5 years ago and the heartbreak that goes along with that. He also talks about a man he met in Cancun, who has cancer, but he does not let that stop him.
It wasn’t his idea to have cameras follow him 24/7, but he soon realized what a special journey he was on and embraced the idea. “PJ knew where I was at mentally. He knew the exhaustion that I had been dealing with, so when I decided to check out, he was like, ‘I want to come with you and I want to document where you are in the beginning of this journey, where you’re at the end of it and what comes about after it.’ So, he followed all of our travels and watching me just kind of evolve through those four months and come out of it and come back in the studio and finish the second half of this record,” says Kip. “So, we just felt like it was a crucial time. We knew that when I got done with those travels I was going to be trying to go back in and finish this record that I’d started on. So, I mean, I think he just wanted to capture what happened between the beginning of it and the end of it, and it wasn’t my idea; it was his, but once we got going, I could see that something pretty special was happening, so I’m glad we were able to capture it.”
He decided to take a break from touring to see the world and for self-exploration. He traveled to Hawaii, Cancun, and Iceland. He traveled to Iceland with one of his best friends that he met in Nashville when he first moved there. Traveling gave Kip a new perspective on life and allowed him to recharge.
Kip is scaling the country charts with “More Girls Like You,” which is from his new album, Slowheart, available September 8th.

The members of Lady Antebellum are making their way up the country charts with “You Look Good” from their new album, Heart Break. The band has received a lot of compliments on including horns on their latest hit song, which has become one of the biggest moments on their You Look Good World Tour.
“I think one of the coolest things about ‘You Look Good’ is you know, just from the get-go the fans really gravitated towards the fun feel of it, the sound of it,” says Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “I can’t go too many places without somebody stopping me and going, ‘Man! Love the horns!’ And it really shows me as an artist that you really do have to take chances. I know that I t was a little scary to some people, because it hasn’t been done in a while, but it just felt like a really, funky, fun summer song. Just to see it rise up the charts and each week become the song of the show on the You Look Good World Tour really is kind of fun to watch.”
Lady Antebellum, who just announced that two of their members are adding to their families in the coming months, wind their way to Dallas and Houston on their You Look Good World Tour next weekend.

Well, you know how we said Lady Antebellum will be expanding their family yesterday? Well, Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell are expecting not one, but TWO babies. Hillary is pregnant with twins who will join big sister Eisele early next year. Chris and Hillary decided to tell her together and share the glorious experience they’ve been praying about with us.

The group announced on Thursday (August 17th) that both Dave Haywood and his wife Kelli were going to welcome their second child in December, while Hillary and Chris were expecting in February 2018 and would join Charles’ son Ward, Dave’s son Cash and Hillary’s daughter Eisele as part of Baby Bellum.
