Proud Papa Charles Kelley Says He'll Be a Hands-On Dad Wh...

Friday, 5:00 AM

Capitol NashvilleOne week after the release of his first solo album, The Driver, Charles Kelley is wrapping up his first 24 hours as a father. Ward Charles Kelley was born Thursday morning in Nashville -- healthy and making lots of sounds, according to his parents.

Though he and his band mates in Lady Antebellum are taking a little break right now, Charles says you can expect Ward to be out on the road with his daddy when the trio eventually re-convenes. In the meantime, the proud papa says he won't shy away from changing his share of the diapers, either!

"Of course! Yeah, I mean I have so many nieces and nephews, and of course, being around Dave [Haywood] and Hillary [Scott] and their kids, they're amazing, you know. And I've gotten to kind of see it first hand how kids do adjust to your life too. And you know, they're two little road babies and I want mine to be too!" 

Ward wasn't actually due until several days after this Monday's Grammys, where his father is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for his recording of his album's title track with Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay. Though new mom Cassie had originally urged Charles to attend the L.A. ceremonies, the couple have since changed their minds. For the record, Charles says he expects Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" to take home the trophy.

Thursday, 2:00 PM

Mercury Nashville/19/InterscopeSeason 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina returns to American Idol Thursday night, offering some pointers to two of the contenders in the show’s farewell season. She will perform with the pair as well.

“I’m so honored American Idol asked me to mentor,” she says. “It’s really special to be able to go back to the show that taught me the ins and outs of the music business and be able to share what I’ve learned with the new contestants. I love that I get to give back to the show that gave me so many opportunities and tools to set up my career,” she reflects.

Scotty McCreery, who won Idol the year Lauren was on, will be back on Thursday as well. You can catch the pair’s return to the show that made them famous at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Lauren co-wrote all five songs on her new self-titled EP, including her current single, “Next Boyfriend.” She heads out on the Keepin’ It Country Tour this spring with Alan Jackson.
