CHARLES KELLEY FIRST-EVER SOLO ALBUM, THE DRIVER

CHARLES KELLEY SETS FEB. 5 RELEASE DATE
FOR FIRST-EVER SOLO ALBUM, THE DRIVER


Upcoming Album’s Lead Single Earns GRAMMY Nomination Ahead of Record Release

NASHVILLE, TN – Jan. 08, 2016 - Today, “one of the most-talked-about releases of 2016” (Billboard) receives a release date as Charles Kelley announces his first-ever solo album THE DRIVER (Capitol Records Nashville) will be available Feb. 5. The nine-track disc has already received a GRAMMY nomination for its lead single/title track, which fans will now receive as an instant download alongside an additional track each Friday leading into release with an iTunes pre-order purchase. 

Stepping outside of Lady Antebellum, one of the world’s most popular groups, Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key. Born in a ratty studio in the back of producer Paul Worley’s offices, the initial batch of songs gave Kelley a sense that he was going to be diving into some new territory, with a real sense of range as “Lonely Girl” and “Your Love” have a Hall and Oates-style, while his cover of Tom Petty’s “Southern Accents” (featuring Stevie Nicks) has a stark and melancholy feel. 

"At first, it was really weird to go in the booth and be like, ‘Where’s Hillary? Where’s Dave?’ But it was very exciting to be the leader in there and go, ‘This is it, I’m doing this,’” Kelley shared. "It was the most fun I’ve had in the studio, because everything felt new again. It took me out of my comfort zone."

Thrilled with the first studio go-round, Kelley and Worley made plans to reconvene a few months later, where they came out with “Dancing Around It,” adding a shot of sexiness into the mix. The second session also included “Leaving Nashville,” an emotional powerhouse of a song about the ups and downs, heartaches and disappointments, of life as a songwriter.  Three final songs were cut later in the year, which added to the album’s moody feel and personal focus. “Round in Circles,” marks the first time that Charles and his brother, Josh Kelley, recorded together since Josh’s early work. THE DRIVER also benefits from an appearance by Miranda Lambert on the textured “I Wish You Were Here” and the very last song recorded, “The Only One Who Gets Me,” which is the fist time Kelley has written a song specifically for and about his wife, Cassie. 

“While so many of these songs are something I specifically can relate to, it really is all of our story,” added Kelley. "It is a pure musical left turn, to take myself out of my own head and bring in a fresh perspective when we go back in to make the next Lady Antebellum record.”

CHRIS CARMACK ON CMT’S HOT 20 COUNTDOWN

CHRIS CARMACK ON
CMT’S HOT 20 COUNTDOWN

 

Show: CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown
Date: Saturday, Jan. 9 and Sunday, Jan. 10 (Re-Air)
Time: 9:00/8:00am CT

Details: Triple-threat singer, songwriter and guitar player Chris Carmack sits down with CMT to chat about his just-released, critically-touted debut EP, PIECES OF YOU, which hit #1 on iTunes' Singer/Songwriter Albums chart. Entertainment Weekly pronounced PIECES OF YOU as “stunning,” Renowned for Sound claimed it was “one to add to the ‘awesome’ pile” and Rolling Stone Country recognized the guitar efforts as “shot through with bursts of fiery fretwork.” Sounds Like Nashville went on to characterize Carmack as “pure talent – one who isn’t afraid to paint outside the lines, and sound just as pure and as authentic in any one style as the other.” The ABC “Nashville” star will also discuss his role as the now-openly gay character, “Will Lexington,” on the hit series. 
About Chris Carmack
The Washington D.C. native, who grew up playing saxophone at a young age, turned his attention towards jazz band and theatre in high school. Upon graduating, he studied at NYU’s esteemed Tisch Adler Conservatory before heading out to Los Angeles where he helped launch the theatrical production of “The Day I Stood Still.” Carmack would spend his off-time practicing guitar, which would later come in handy for his role on "Nashville." His performance in “The Day I Stood Still” attracted the attention of the producers from the hit drama “The O.C.,” who cast him as “Luke Ward” in the series in 2003. After completing his work on the show, Carmack returned to the stage in New York at the Roundabout Theatre Company, where he took on the role of “Sloane” in “Entertaining Mr. Sloane,” alongside Alec Baldwin and Jan Maxwell. He also performed in London, playing John Buchanan in Tennessee Williams’ “Summer and Smoke.”

“It hit me right in the heart the first time I heard it. It is a story of redemption and a reminder that with God, all things are possible,” Conlee said.

“Bread and Water” chorus:
Bread and water, man that’s all you need
Bread and water, brother just believe
If you ain’t too proud to get down on your knees
The bread and water’s free
Bread and water’s free
