As the birth of her first child grows near, Carrie Underwood is doing her homework on how to balance motherhood with superstardom.

And one of her greatest teachers so far has been friend Hillary Scott, who’s happy to share advice on touring with babies on board.

“Carrie and I are really good friends and it was an honest, expectant [and] new mom conversation,” the Lady Antebellum singer, 28, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Adds the mom to 18-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye, “It’s a weird transition at first — you feel like you have to split your brain because you’re in such a mommy mode and then you’ve got to work at such an intense job too.”

Rule number one? Resist the temptation to tiptoe around the new baby.

Why Hillary Scott May Need a ‘Box of Kleenex’ Before Lady A’s New Tour

Hillary Scott might be in for a second honeymoon when Lady Antebellum kicks off their Wheels Up 2015 Tour with a three-week, eight-city run through Europe and Australia.

But the trip will be “bittersweet” for Scott — whose husband, Chris Tyrrell, is the band’s drummer — as the couple will be leaving their 18-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye at home.

“Do you have a box of Kleenex before I start talking about it? My little girl is not going,” Scott, 28, told reporters Monday at a brunch in Nashville to celebrate the tour announcement.

“It’s just logistically a nightmare. But she will be in good hands. My mom will spoil her rotten and I’ll have to come home and probably rewrite a lot of bad habits.”

The first-time mama will have plenty to keep her busy, too. When she’s not on stage, Scott jokes she’ll be indulging in retail therapy.

Time changes everything — just ask Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott.

The band recently wrapped their Take Me Downtown tour and while they’ve sorted out the bus situation, the first-time mom admits she’s still adjusting to taking 13-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye out on the road.

“It’s a lot to juggle,” Scott, 28, tells PEOPLE. “When I’m on the road and touring, my whole day revolves around when I need to get ready, so by a certain time I need to be taking a shower and if I’m 10 minutes late, then it’s going to make the rest of the day shift.”

Adds the singer, “It can get stressful.”

There may be a future country star in Hillary Scott‘s house.

The Lady Antebellum singer says her 4-month-old daughter Eisele Kaye already recognizes the group’s songs.

“We played the Grand Ole Opry a few months ago,” Scott, 27, told reporters at the American Country Awards on Tuesday.

“She was in the backstage area and they have a live feed for what’s going on on stage. She was in a dead sleep and we started into ‘Compass.’ She woke up and looked straight at the TV,and was glued. She’s already been bit by the bug.”

Scott’s baby girl will be touring with Lady Antebellum in January and — for the first time — the group will be rolling down the road in separate buses.

Hillary Scott: Why We Waited to Name Our Daughter

11/12/2013 at 01:00 PM ET

After months spent searching for the perfect name, Hillary Scott decided to wait for the magical moment of meeting her daughter to make the final decision.

“I had felt like the instant I saw her, I would know exactly what her name was — there would be no question,” the Lady Antebellum songstress, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

But when her baby girl was born in July, the new mom found herself at a temporary loss — until her husband Chris Tyrrell stepped in.

“She had probably been out of the womb 20 to 30 minutes before we decided for sure. After she was born, I was looking at Chris going, ‘What’s her name?!'” she says. “Once he said it, then I knew. I had felt that all along, but I needed him to feel it too.”

Now the couple are completely smitten over their choice of Eisele Kaye, which honors Tyrrell’s mother’s maiden name and Scott’s mother’s middle name, respectively. “Once he saw her and said it, it was done,” the  singer explains.

“We love how it sounds kind of musical, it has a sing-song sound to it. It floats in a pretty, musical way,” Scott adds.
