No need to worry about Lady A’s Charles Kelley getting a big ego… well, so long as actor Andy Garcia is around.

LISTEN NOW: Charles tells John & Tammy in the Morning the hilarious story of Andy Garcia calling him by the wrong name

Charles shared that The Untouchables actor, whom he sees regularly, always calls him by the wrong name… but Charles has zero plans to correct him.

“So, I just got back from playing the AT&T Pro-Am… up in California and every year Andy Garcia — you know, famous actor— is there,” Charles told Audacy’s John & Tammy in the Morning. “Every time [he sees me] he calls me Chris! He goes, ‘Chris… how’d you play out there on the golf course today, Chris?’”

Chris… ahem, CHARLES continued, “My buddies are like, ‘Are you going to tell him?’ And I’m like, ‘Heck no! That’s Andy Garcia. He can call me Chris.”

Apparently Garcia isn’t the only one who misidentifies Charles. Kelley also shared Lady A is regularly mistaken for Little Big Town.

“Listen, when we walk through an airport they’re like, ‘Man, I love your band Little Big Town!’” Charles laughs. “I’m like, ‘close enough!’”

Regardless of the mistaken identities, there is no mistaking the good Charles, Hillary and Dave of Lady A are spreading with their Lady A Philanthropic efforts via the LadyAid organization.

“We’re in a position where we just want to give back,” said the group’s Dave Haywood. “It’s been a priority for us for over a decade… it’s all part of who we are as a band.”
