Lady Antebellum Addresses Bus Etiquette

April 16, 2008 - One of the often-overlooked truths of travelling in a band is that the smallest details about people's habits can become major obstacles. That's particularly true of grooming habits, which became a point of contention for Lady Antebellum when the group started touring together.

Hilary Scott is the only female member of the band and crew, which travels with nine people on one bus. And that means there are some issues about the vehicle's restroom.

"The first weekend we were out with Martina McBride was the first time we ever had a tour bus," Hilary told the national radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville. "After being out for like two days, I think — maybe it was just one night — I was like, 'I have to call a band meeting' that 'I'm the only girl all the time, and the least you can do is keep the toilet seat down.' I said, 'Everything else, I'm good. I'm not gonna nag you, but keep the toilet seat down, because it helps with ... my sanity.'"

Hilary says the band and crew have done "pretty well" at complying. Tonight their bus is likely parked in Los Angeles as they make their debut on the Sunset Strip, performing at the Key Club. Their self-titled debut album arrived in stores yesterday.
