Charles Kelley is suffering from first-time dad problems.

“I can’t tell if he’s smiling or [if] it’s gas,” the Lady Antebellum singer, 34, told PEOPLE of his son before taping the latest installment of CMT Crossroads alongside Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas.

Kelley and his wife Cassie welcomed their first child, Ward Charles, in February and the two are relishing their “really chill” baby boy.

“As of now, I see him as a very even temperament,” Kelley says. “If we have another kid, I’m sure that will change everything.”

Even celebrities aren’t free of the wrath of sleepless newborns.

“We don’t sleep,” Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley told PEOPLE Wednesday night on the red carpet at the CMT Awards. “I don’t know if Ward is just growing so fast or teething or what, but we don’t get any sleep.”

The Grammy-nominated artist, 34 — who welcomed his first child, son Ward Charles, in February — admits that the new lifestyle has been hardest on his wife Cassie, who stays up with their baby boy throughout the night for feedings.

“By the time 6:30 a.m. rolls around, she’s ready for a break,” he says, “which I’m not used to — I’m used to sleeping until 10 a.m.! It’s a different world, man.”

Charles Kelley Considered Taking Private Plane to the Grammys, But Hasn’t Been Out of His Robe in Two Days

02/15/2016 at 05:15 PM ET

It’s been a wild ride for Charles Kelley: Not only is “The Driver” singer a first-time father, but he’s also up for his first Grammy nomination as a solo artist for his hit new single.

But if he wins best country duo/group performance on Monday, the new dad will not be on hand to accept the award.

The decision comes after Kelley and his wife Cassie welcomed son Ward Charles on Thursday — six days ahead of his original due date. In the week leading up to his son’s birth, Kelley, 34, told PEOPLE attending music’s biggest night was still up in the air.

“I told [Cassie], ‘I do not have to go,’ and she goes, ‘No, I want you to go, Charles. This project means the world to you — this is a big moment for you,’ ” he said.

“If I do go to the Grammys, I’m going to just have to bite the bullet and have a little private plane waiting in the wings.”

Charles and Cassie Kelley Reveal They’re Expecting a Son After Fertility Struggle: ‘We Were Up Against Incredible Odds’

08/28/2015 at 11:25 AM ET

For Cassie McConnell Kelley and husband Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, finding out they were expecting their first child was a surprise.

“I get choked up just thinking about it,” she told Good Morning America on Friday during the show’s fertility week series. “We’re thankful — blessed isn’t a strong enough word. We were up against some incredible odds, and it still happened.”

McConnell Kelley said she and Kelley, who were married in 2009, hadn’t even considered that they would have fertility issues when they first started trying for a baby.

“When you’re young, healthy, and you’re ready to start a family, you just don’t envision there will be any problems doing that,” she said. “My body doesn’t ovulate regularly [called anovulation], which is problem number one. I also had a blockage in my fallopian tube, which also happened to be connected to my dominant ovary.”
