Lady Antebellum has a lot to be happy about — both on and off the stage!
The country group has sold 11 million copies of their 747 album and have won Vocal Group of the Year at both the CMAs and ACM Awards for the past three years — also, band member Charles Kelley is expecting a baby!
With their mega success and rapidly expanding families, it makes sense the group is taking some much needed time off!

Frontwoman Hillary Scott revealed that after Lady A wraps up their Wheels Up Tour with Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt, they'll take some time off touring.
But don't worry, fans! They'll use that time to write their next album!
The Need You Now singer explained that the band has been going full force ever since their first album, so they would like to take their time with creating their next streak of hits! She said:
"We've just made so many albums in such a short period of time, and we're proud of them, and what we've done in our career, and what we've said with them—but we've never given ourselves the gift of time."
Don't worry Lady A fans, Scott doesn't think the break will be too long! The 29-year-old continued:
"Knowing us, it will probably be a lot shorter than what we probably set out for it to be, because we can't ever really stop. But yeah, there's no timeline, and that feels so nice to know. When we feel like it's ready we'll go to work."
What will the bandmates be up to aside from writing? According to Scott, spending lots of time with family! She added:
"I'll be cooking a lot in my kitchen and having people over, and just honestly making up for lost time with memories with everyone we love. That's the hard thing about what we do is just being away from our friends and family."
It's great the band is taking some time off to creatively re-energize and, more importantly, spend time with their loved ones!
