Charles Kelley Performs New Song 'Leaving Nashville'

(Radio.com) Charles Kelley is sharing another song from his upcoming solo debut, The Driver. "Leaving Nashville" captures the struggles of singers and songwriters trying to make their way in Music City.

'This song was actually written by a couple songwriters, Abe Stoklasa and Donovan Woods, and it's about the struggles as a writer in Nashville - 'One day you're the king the next you're not,'" Kelley told American Songwriter. 'You may go a year without having a cut and then the phone starts ringing."

The Georgia native admits he can relate to that struggle. 'Being in a band like Lady Antebellum, we have had our fair share of ups and downs, and it's hard for me to listen to this song and not hear myself in that," he added. 'What I love about it is this inside look of Nashville and the music business, but I think it's so relatable because [we] all know what it's like to have those moments in life where you're never going to give up on a dream because it's addictive." Check out the song here.
