It turns out that Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum will still be working hard on the tour, but her husband Chris Tyrrell is going to take a step back from touring to be a stay-at-home dad and focus on their children. People shared the details about what big decision this couple made recently.
In July, the group Lady Antebellum will be going out on a new tour that is called the Summer Plays on Tour. The three lead singers will be there, but you are going to notice that the band’s drummer Chris Tyrrell will not be along with them this time. He is the husband of Hillary Scott and they recently had twins. Instead of being out on the road and busy like he has been, Chris is going to be the one staying behind to focus on being a stay-at-home dad to their children.
Hillary shared the details saying that he will be “be holding it down as Dad, hero” at home “for the time being.” Of course, the band just wouldn’t be the same without Hillary, so it will be easier for Chris to stay home. He will be missed by the fans as well, though. If you follow a group long enough, you get to know the entire band. It will also be different for Hillary to not have him on the stage with her every night on tour.
It turns out that Hillary and Tyler are really okay with this decision. They feel like it is the best thing. She had twin girls Betsy Mack and Emory JoAnn on Jan. 29 and the couple also has a 4½-year-old daughter Eisele Kaye. They will keep him pretty busy. Hillary explained her thoughts on this decision.
“We’re both equipping each other to do exactly what we’re supposed to be doing right now. We just came to that agreement together. It was one of the easiest decisions we’ve ever made and the peace that we’ve felt since we made it has just been continual proof of it being the right call.”
It doesn’t sound like the family will be out on the tour with her, though. Hillary Scott says that she has plans to do a lot of writing while on the bus and hopefully, she can focus on it. Tyler realizes that when they had to think about if the band could do without him or without Hillary “there was no question.”
Hillary Scott suffered a miscarriage between her daughter and getting pregnant with the twins. She slept a lot while pregnant with the twins and had to deal with a lot of nausea. Now, Hillary is doing great and ready to go back on tour. The fans can’t wait to see Lady Antebellum back out on tour once again.
