Lady Antebellum compare tours to summer camp

Lady Antebellum think touring is just like going on “summer camp”.

The American country pop band has achieved huge success lately, picking up the best country album award at this year’s Grammys for Own the Night.

Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood are still astounded by their success. The love everything about the jobs, especially playing shows for fans.

“There are definitely times when you miss your bed, but you get used to the routine of [touring]. It kind of feels like summer camp,” Dave laughed.

The male members of the group have made a special allowance for Hillary. She has a separate section on the tour bus, which includes her own bathroom.

“I have my own bed, and a bathroom back there, so I do get my space. I have a TV and anything I could ever need. I don't have a refrigerator, but I would never come out if I did!" she giggled.

Dave quickly added to Parade: “There were one too many times I forgot to put the toilet seat back down, so she put her own bathroom in the back!"

In 2011, the group stole the show at the Grammys by picking up the album of the year, record of the year and song of the year for Need You Now. They were astounded by that success and did not expect to triumph again at this year’s ceremony.

Although picking up prizes means a lot to the trio, they know there is a lot of hard work ahead of them too.

“We want to be doing this as long as The Eagles and Alabama, all those other great groups that have come before us,” Dave said.

Part of the plan includes introducing their music to more people. Charles revealed the group are currently planning a tour of Europe which they hope will win them some new fans.

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
