Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley Goes Solo With 'The Driver'
"We just felt like we were maybe getting to a point where we wanted to step back," he tells Radio.com. "As a band we said, 'Let's just take some time, enjoy our families.'"
Oddly enough, the first taste of the album that we heard is the title track, which features Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay. Apparently, Kelley likes being part of a vocal trio. "It's the song I'm probably the most proud of on the project. And it just happens to be that that's the one with another trio of voices."
Another song on the album is a cover of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' "Southern Accents." "Every time I hear that song, it just reminds me of my dad and how he grew up. He was one of those guys that really did walk five miles to school, and had to work on the farm after school, and did things like that. So I always kind of picture him in my mind when I'm singing that song." Read more here.
