Lady Antebellum‘s “You Look Good” Tour has been on the road for several months now, and naturally, there’s some downtime between shows, which opening act Brett Young is determined to make the most of.
Charles Kelley of Lady A has been known to have a basketball hoop by the tour buses, but Brett says he’s the one who’s been taking charge. “We’re actually the camp that’s setting up the hoop on this trip, which has been fun, and their guys have come over and played with us a little bit,” he shares in a statement from his label.
But playing basketball has been part of a bigger fitness routine for the tour. “Hillary [Scott]’s husband and Lady A’s drummer, Chris, one of their trailers is literally a fitness trailer. And so he’s out there training anybody that wants to get a workout, he’s getting his own workout in.”
And, of course, there’s been some songwriting. “Charles and I have hung out quite a bit but not athletically,” Brett admits. “Whenever I bring writers on the road he’s going, ‘Hey, let me jump in, let me write with you.’ And so I’ve written with Charles three or four times at this point, and it’s been a blast. I think probably songs that will end up on their record, songs that will end up on mine, and it’s been fun.”
