It was kind of a fortunate stroke of luck for Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley. The release of the trio’s newest album, “Heart Break,” happened just weeks before his actual anniversary with wife Cassie, and the collection just so happened to include the song “Army” which was written to honor both Cassie and the wife of his Lady A band mate, Dave Haywood.
“Our wives are rock stars,” Charles tells People. “I feel like my wife is my life tour manager — without her it’s hard to maintain artistic creativity. She is just so good at maintaining balance in my life — going, ‘Hey, I’m planning a little vacation for us. You need it. We need it as a family.’ And then she’s doing this website and all these appearances … She’s rocking it!”
Cassie, who was a music industry publicist when the couple tied the knot, is now the brain and muscle behind the popular women’s lifestyle website “Womanista.”
Charles and Cassie exchanged vows in 2009 and, after a battle with infertility that they’ve openly discussed, they added their handsome baby boy, Ward, to the family in February 2016.
