Charles Kelley Putting the (Lady) A in Appendicitis

Charles Kelley Putting the (Lady) A in Appendicitis

Sending out get well wishes to Lady A‘s Charles Kelley who is dealing with appendix issues.

Charles shared the following message and picture on social media this weekend…

“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. 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.”

The trio was scheduled to appear at the Lakefront Music Fest in Minnesota with Jake Owen and Noah Guthrie, but sadly a bout with appendicitis put a damper on Lady A’s long awaited return to the stage.

The band has back-to-back shows scheduled at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, Texas this Friday and Saturday, before they kick off their What A Song Can Do tour on the 29th in Connecticut – no word yet on the how this will impact those dates.

We’re wishing Charles a speedy recovery…

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
