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.”

Jana Kramer Welcomes a New Tour Guest: 4-Month-Old Daughter Jolie!

06/09/2016 at 10:45 AM ET

Jana Kramer‘s most recent tour guest is the cutest one yet: her 4-month-old daughter, Jolie Rae!

“I have Jolie out on the road with me most of the time, and to do what I love and be able to combine both is just a pretty great feeling,” the country singer, 32, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I look back and say, ‘Wow, this is what I’ve always wanted,’ and it’s come true — I’m a mom and a touring musician. It can’t get any better than that.”

For Kramer, routine is key. While she always makes sure to have her “mandatory 10 minutes of fun” with her band before hitting the stage, there is one slight aspect of touring that has changed since she gave birth.

“The first couple shows I was like, ‘Wow, I’m out of breath,’ ” says Kramer, who will be embracing Malibu Rum’s “Because Summer” campaign at the brand’s pop-up Beach House at Faster Horses Country Music Festival in her home state of Michigan. “I’ve gotten back in the routine of things, and it’s all going good.”

If having 5-month-old twins has taught David Nail anything, it’s that you need patience — “a ridiculous amount of it,” he tells PEOPLE.

“I knew that I was going to have to be patient, but it’s something that I’ve never really been,” admits the father of son Lawson Brent and daughter Lillian Catherine.

“I felt like that throughout my wife’s pregnancy I was subconsciously getting more patient. Things would happen and my reaction would kind of surprise myself. But there’s just nothing that can prepare you for how patient you have to be — especially with twins.”

He adds, “I definitely have a tendency to get a little anxious when they are upset. Obviously they don’t know how to communicate to you what’s the matter. It’s like trying to read a baby’s mind. That’s when I really lean on my wife.”

Carrie Underwood on Having More Kids: ‘I Could Do a Few More of Those’

05/02/2016 at 02:30 PM ET

Carrie Underwood was the belle of the ball at the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards, but it seems like the mom of son Isaiah Michael, 14 months, may be getting some stiff singing competition at home.

“He likes to sing,” Underwood told PEOPLE backstage at the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California. “If you just go ‘la-la-la’, he’ll go ‘la-la-la-la.’ He mimics really well.”

In addition to singing, Isaiah has other interests. “Right now he is a climber, which is not good,” she shares. “He’s into everything. He runs. He babbles. He’s a good eater.”
