On August 4, Lady A took to Instagram to announce that their Request Line Tour was being postponed.

"We have decided to postpone our Request Line Tour until next year. Being on the road with our fans is our greatest joy, so it was a hard but important decision to make," the band said in a statement.

They later went on to reveal that it was postponed because member Charles Kelley "embarked on a journey to sobriety."

"...We’re looking forward to making 2023 our best year yet!⁣⁣" Lady A added.

Scott is famously known as the daughter of country music singer Linda Davis, while Kelley is the brother of popular pop singer Josh Kelley.

Since forming, the band has released nine studio albums and worked with the likes of Russell Dickerson, Maroon 5, and Hunter Hayes.

In June 2020, the band made headlines after they changed their name from Lady Antebellum to Lady A after fans called it racist in light of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“When we set out together almost 14 years ago, we named our band after the Southern ‘Antebellum’ style home where we took our first photos,” the band said in a statement, via Billboard.

“As musicians, it reminded us of all the music born in the South that influenced us…Southern rock, blues, R&B, gospel and of course country. But we are regretful and embarrassed to say that we did not take into account the associations that weigh down this word…which includes slavery.”

Crime and Public Safety | Judge denies 19-year-old daughter’s request to witness Kevin Johnson execution

ST. LOUIS (KCTV) — For more than a decade, Kevin Johnson has sat on death row for killing Kirkwood Police Sgt. William McEntee.

Johnson is facing execution by lethal injection for the July 2005 killing.

On Friday, a federal court judge denied Johnson’s 19-year-old daughter Khorry Ramey’s request to watch the execution.

Under current Missouri law, you must be 21 years old to witness an execution.

Ramey had Michelle Smith with Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty read a statement for her, claiming this decision will cause her an immense amount of pain.

“It is excruciating to know that I am about to lose my dad all over again when the state of Missouri kills him,” Smith read. “Yet I cannot be present for his death simply because of my age.”

Johnson’s attorney, Shawn Nolan, was also pushing for Ramey to be able to attend.

“It’s ironic that Kevin was 19 years old when he committed this crime, and they are still trying to move forward with his execution, though they won’t allow his daughter, who is 19, [witness the execution] because she’s too young,” Nolan says.

In the statement Smith read for Ramey, Ramey says not only did she want to be there as a witness, but it was also what her dad wanted.

“I am my dad’s closest living relative, and he is mine, other than my baby son,” Smith reads. “If my dad was dying in a hospital, I would sit by his side, holding his hand and praying for him until his death. Both as a source of support for him and for me as a necessary part of my grieving process and for my piece of mind.”

Many people are asking Missouri Gov. Mike Parson to grant clemency.

“I was surprised by his remarks,” Nolan says. “I would say the governor should be more concerned about racism in the court system in Missouri. We’re hopeful that maybe he’ll take a second look at it and review all of the information that we put forth in the clemency petition.”

Earlier this week, Parson told News 4 that as far as his office is concerned, the execution will continue as planned.

“You got a guy who went over there, cold-blooded killed a police officer by two shots in the head after he shot him multiple times,” Parson said. “It’s a pretty vicious crime. Sometimes you have to answer the consequences to that.”
