to the road, GRAMMY winning singer/songwriter Charles Kelley completes
his first week of THE DRIVER TOUR picked up by Enterprise. As the “Lady
Antebellum frontman stretches his solo wings and soars” (St. Louis. Dispatch), his new single “Lonely Girl” from his debut album THE DRIVER (Capitol Records Nashville) has grabbed audiences attention for its “emotional, a little raw 60s ultra-lounge vibe” (The Augusta Chronicle). Leaving critics and fans “amazed at the kind of rapport” (The Press Enterprise)
Kelley has with his fans, the singer along with special guest Josh
Kelley will head to the West Coast this weekend including a sold-out

in it with the fans at these clubs,” said Kelley. “You never really
know how the night is going to go when you step up on stage, but the
energy has been unreal. It’s been really cool to feed off what the crowd
is feeling and just go with it from night to night.”
As Kelley “continues to stay true to himself — all while telling stories” (Albuquerque Journal) the singer/songwriter’s new single “Lonely Girl” has been praised for its “soulful direction” (Rolling Stone).
It succeeds his first-ever debut track “The Driver” which earned a
GRAMMY nomination for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” ahead of the
album’s release. Produced by Paul Worley, THE DRIVER explores new
territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier
key. In addition to his success as part of seven-time GRAMMY
award-winning trio Lady Antebellum, Kelley has also penned No. one hits
recorded by Luke Bryan and Darius Rucker.
