Charles Kelley is thanking fans for their support during his sobriety journey. 

Recently, Lady A announced they were postponing their Request Line Tour for a year while Charles enters recovery. The singer has now broken his silence following the announcement, saying that fans’ encouragement has lifted his spirit, sharing a family photo of him and his wife, Cassie, at the beach with their 6-year-old son, Ward.

“Y’alls kind words have meant the world to me and really lifted me up over the past few weeks. I can’t wait to get back on the road with Lady A next year,” he expresses in the caption. “Getting on that stage and being able to see, hear and feel everything through a clearer lens is going to be a gift that I won’t take for granted. I’m grateful for this time to focus on my family and my health.⁣” 

In an Instagram post on August 4, the band announced that this year’s tour dates would be moved to 2023 and that updates about the new dates would be coming soon to fans who purchased tickets.

“We are a band, but more importantly … we’re family. We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety. 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,” the trio wrote at the time.
