Immediately following the television premiere of “The Only One Who Gets Me” on ABC’s The Bachelorette last night (6/6), seven-time GRAMMY winner Charles Kelley has become one of the most buzzed about topics on social media. As his debut solo record The Driver (Capitol Records Nashville) jumped to the Top 10 on iTunes Country Albums chart, its autobiographical track simultaneously skyrocketed into iTunes’ Top 5 on the Country Songs chart where it continues to be a trending search.
Written about his wife, the track features Kelley’s signature gritty vocals in this stripped-down version of “The Only One Who Gets Me”.
As Kelley “continues to stay true to himself — all while telling stories” (Albuquerque Journal), the singer/songwriter’s latest 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. Along with his success as part of multi-Platinum award-winning trio Lady Antebellum, Kelley has also penned No. one hits recorded by Luke Bryan and Darius Rucker. It’s Lady Antebellum’s universal appeal that continues to resonate across the globe, as they continue to headline festivals throughout the summer on the LADY ANTEBELLUM 2016 SUMMER TOUR.
