If Charles Kelley’s future kids can’t sing, then Charles Kelley’s future kids won’t be singers, the Lady Antebellum male lead explains. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the ‘Just a Kiss’ hitmaker dishes on why he doesn’t necessarily want his brood following in his footsteps.

“I’m gonna be honest with you. I see too many celebrity kids who can’t sing. If you don’t have it, give it up, because people are brutal,” the Lady A star admits. Despite having multiple Grammys under his belt, Kelley says he never wants his kids to feel shadowed by his success, and wants them to be who they are. He says, “I never want my kids to feel like they have to live up to what I’ve done.”

However, if his children do wish to pursue a career in music (they’ll grow up around it, after all!), Kelley will make sure they’ve got the walk to match the talk. He tells EW, “If little Tommy wants to grow up to be a singer, and Little Tommy can’t sing worth sh—, I’m gonna say, ‘I think you need to reassess your dreams, bro.’”

Lady Antebellum are nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at this year’s CMA Awards, which air on November 9.
