Lady A has postponed their upcoming tour to support band member Charles Kelley while he gets sober.

The country trio announced Thursday that their upcoming Request Line Tour, which was scheduled to begin on Aug. 13, has been pushed to 2023 to focus on Kelley's journey to sobriety.

"Being on the road with our fans is our greatest joy, so it was a hard but important decision to make," the group wrote in a statement. "We are a band, but more importantly… we're family. We're proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety."

The statement continued: "So, right now in order to be the healthiest, strongest, and most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together.”

Lady A — which also includes Hillary Scott, 36, and Dave Haywood, 40 — clarified that the fans who have purchased tickets will be contacted soon with new ticket information.

"We're looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet!" the group wrote, signing their statement, "With love."

Lady A previously announced a 21-date tour in April that was to begin in Nashville and wrap on Oct. 29 in Indianapolis.
