The members of Lady Antebellum were the first People’s Choice Awards attendees to hit the red carpet, and they kicked off the event with a potentially serious wardrobe malfunction. Charles Kelley, who was accompanied by his bandmates Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott, revealed that he ripped his pants during the ride to the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Speaking with E! red carpet host Giuliana Rancic, Kelley exposed the “rip” on his Dolce & Gabbana suit -- which was inconveniently located on his inseam! Rancic offered to sew him up, but Kelley laughed it off and insisted that he would get it taken care of.

Lady Antebellum is on hand at the 41st annual awards show to perform its hit single “Freestyle.”

“I think more than anything this song has just got a lot of energy,” Scott previewed of “Freestyle” to the People's Choice Awards blog.

The People’s Choice Awards begins at 9 p.m. EST on CBS. “Mom” stars Allison Janney and Anna Faris will host the event. Click HERE for live stream information.
