Lady A’s Charles Could Be a Record Label Exec If He Wanted

Charles told Luke Bryan: “This is your I’m-a-superstar record.”

Charles Kelley from Lady Antebellum isn't an I-told-you-so kinda guy. But even he likes reminding Luke Bryan of a prediction he made not so long ago.

Charles remembers being on the same flight as Luke before Tailgates & Tanlines came out, when Luke handed him a preview copy.

"I listened to it, and I leaned over, and I was like, 'I'm telling you, this is absolutely gonna change your world,'" Charles told ABC Radio News.

"I said, 'This is your breakout record. . . . This is your I'm-a-superstar record,' and I was right. So that's all I gotta say. I can call 'em."

You go, Charles! Now, in case you might be dubious of Charles' claims, Luke backs him up.

"He handed the CD back to me, and he was like, 'Get ready, buddy,'" Luke said. "Charles sent me some pretty good mojo on that one."

So which act has the better album, Lady A or Luke? They're up against each other in the album category when the CMA Awards are telecast live from Nashville at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
