out of the spotlight.)
The girls in Dublin want to know: Is Lady
Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley a little bit Irish?
In this adorably Irish video
on the band’s website, a group of teenage girls were waiting outside Dublin’s Olympia Theatre to see the Lady Antebellum
show earlier this week. And the band’s videographer got them to open up about their love of the band.
“We just want
to know how tall Charles is. And we think he’s half Irish, because of ‘Kelley.’ And because he’s got the ginger thing going
on,” one of the fans says. Personally, I’ve never really thought of Kelley as a ginger, but I guess in the right light his
hair could look a little strawberry blondish.
She goes on to say, in her brogue, “He could be my brother. But I want
to marry him, so that’d be awkward.”
I don’t know if they’re right about him being half Irish or not, but it’s just
so good to see fans more than 3000 miles away loving country music as much as we love it here at home.
