Lady Antebellum recall their days of trick-or-treating, and Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott each definitely have their favorites.

Charles tells us candy corn and raisins are big Halloween don’ts! “Candy corn’s the most hated. Favorite would have to be Skittles. Love Skittles! (Dave) Yeah, the candy corns and those candy corn pumpkins, like all the little versions of that plastic-tasting candy corn stuff . . . (Charles) Candy’s just gotten so good now. I mean, those things can’t compete anymore. (Dave) Yeah, you got Sour Patch Kids in the market today. How can you compete with something like that? (Charles and Hillary laugh) (Charles) I love that commercial where the boy goes, ‘We can’t go over to the dentist’s house. He’s handing out floss!’ I was like that’s hilarious! I remember there was a guy that always handed out raisins. It’s like, ‘Dude, come on! Raisins?!’ (Dave) It’s the one night a year you’re supposed to just have some candy. What’s the big deal? (Charles) The raisin guy! (Hillary) I love Nerds, too. (Charles) Yeah, those are good. (Hillary) Nerds.”


Hillary’s infant daughter, Eisele, may be too young to collect candy this year, but she tells us the baby will be dressed up. “We have two outfits. Her daddy actually went and picked out a lion cub and an elephant. I thought it safer to have two just in case she has an accident, so either way she’ll look really cute (laughs).”
