Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott didn’t think twice about getting on board another tour bus after her bus was destroyed in a fire on April 16 on the way to the ACM Awards in Dallas. Everyone on board the bus got out OK, and Hillary turned down her tour manager’s offer to put her on a flight back to Nashville from Texas.
Hillary says, “We all bussed back from Dallas, and I was intentional with getting back on, because it’s like, when you fall off a horse, you get back on the horse. You know, that’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing to happen, and I don’t want to live in fear. I refuse to.”
Hillary plans to hold on to that fearless attitude as Lady A launches their Wheels Up tour this Friday night in Lubbock, Texas.
When asked if she plans to change anything about the way she travels for this trek, Hillary says, “I mean, other than I think everybody, all the bus drivers will be checking the buses a lot more. But the things is, though, with [the bus fire], I think it was just such a fluke accident.”
Lady Antebellum is taking Hunter Hayes and Sam Hunt along on the Wheels Up tour. Check out a full list of tour dates at LadyAntebellum.com.
