Charles Kelley Debuts Solo Music

Charles Kelley

Lady Antebellum may be gearing up for a much needed break, but Charles Kelley is just getting started. The singer debuted a solo project for an intimate industry crowd this week in Nashville.

“I wanted to get myself out of my comfort zone – and this is out of my comfort zone.”

The project will be lead with single “The Driver” which includes Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay.

Many hear the words solo project and will be quick to think that Lady Antebellum is no longer, but Charles insists that isn’t the case.

“Lady Antebellum will never f—ing break up, mark my words,” says Charles. “I wouldn’t have done this without Hillary and Dave giving me their blessing,” Kelley said, before thanking them for “understanding why I wanted to do this and why I needed to do this.”

Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott is giving back in a big way. The singer has started a scholarship for her Alma Mater, MTSU, giving women who want a creative career in the music industry a chance.

Her dad is a professional songwriter and one of his first cuts was on LeAnn Rimes’ first album,” the band’s manager Daniel Miller explained of why Scott funded the scholarship. “The income that her family earned from the sale of that song on that record allowed them to send her to MTSU.”

“Whether it be a songwriter, a producer, an engineer, whatever … hopefully this will allow several young women the opportunity to achieve their dreams indefinitely,” Miller said.

After a sold-out performance for their first-ever headlining hometown stop at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday (9/11), Lady Antebellum will wrap their headlining WHEELS UP 2015 TOUR having proven “the group is far from running out of steam” (Billboard) with an “effervescent evening of impeccable harmonies” (The Tennessean). The 65-city tour that first launched in Europe earlier this year will soar into its final destination this weekend with shows in Pittsburgh, PA tonight (9/18) and Camden, NJ tomorrow (9/19).

“It’s hard to believe that we’re in the last weekend of this tour after checking off so many bucketlist moments with this show,” shares Lady A’s Charles Kelley. “The tour was our dream come true and it’s hard to really sum up exactly how much that means to us. We’re looking forward to spending a lot of time this winter writing new music – and we can’t wait for the next chapter of Lady A.”
