Looks like this little one has some skills like his Lady A daddy Instagram/@cassiemkelley

We’ve often wondered if musical talent is inherited. Does a good voice, musicianship or hit songwriting run in the genes? It looks like it might be in the DNA of Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley.

Charles’ wife, Cassie, shared adorable video on her Instagram page from the band’s Manchester tour stop in the U.K. As the crew sets up for the band’s soundcheck, Charles strides onto the stage with the couple’s baby boy, Ward, in his arms.

After he gets the mic turned on, Charles sings a bit, then puts his son to the mic. Ward enthusiastically sings his own riff. Dad sings again, and Ward echoes.

But then, as often happens with toddlers and their abbreviated attention spans, Ward loses interest in the call-and-response and, despite the urging to perform, his portion of the show is over.

Aaaaaaand … scene. Take a bow and draw the curtain, he’s done.

Ward isn’t the only Baby A with a penchant for performing, no matter how short his set is. Hillary Scott’s daughter, Eisele, has also revealed she has some pretty impressive pipes. And while we haven’t yet heard Dave’s son, Cash, belt out a tune, he has shown some interest in picking up the guitar, much like his daddy.


Remember, in December, Dave and wife Kelli will be adding a new member to the band, and next spring, Hillary and husband Chris are expecting twins. So instead of a trio, the next generation of Lady A is looking like a full-fledged, self-contained band.
