Charles Kelley scorches Vevo with music video premiere of “Lonely Girl”


THE DRIVER Dubbed By Rolling Stone & StereoGum
As “Stand Out” of 2016

NASHVILLE, TN - July 13, 2016 - Seven-time GRAMMY winner Charles Kelley shares the premiere of the sultry music video for "Lonely Girl" today on VEVO. Praised by New York Times as it "shuffles with a kind of prim swagger," Director Shaun Silva brings to light "a deceptive lyric, consoling a broken-hearted woman with a promise" (Billboard)

"Lonely Girl" (co-written by Chris Stapleton and songwriter Jesse Frasure) flips quickly through a series of stylish, muted settings that alternately feature Kelley and the titular female. She perches on the kitchen counter, reclines beside the bathtub and sprawls across a luxurious shag rug with her headphones on!
The R&B-tinted tune points towards Michael McDonald’s influence recalls early Lady A hits like "Love Don't Live Here”.

Song Lyrics:
What's the matter?
You used to be so in love
Now you're crying
He wasn't everything you dreamed of
I gotta tell you
He really wasn't ever good enough for you

Lonely girl, you're the only girl for me
Can't you see?
When you're all alone, put this record on in your room
Oh, and you won't be lonely
You won't be lonely, girl
Ooh, yeah

Kelley continues to catch the attention of critics nationwide with his solo debut record THE DRIVER (Capitol Records Nashville) as Rolling Stone and StereoGum have called it a "stand out" of 2016.

"It's polished yet immensely supple, a collection with room for his rousing mythologies of music's pull, patient seduction and autobiographical confessions." - NPR

"A theme album in an age of singles, 'The Driver' is another fine example that country music is poised to shift away stifling trends and strive toward a more individually expressive era.” - Associated Press

"Inked by a guy who just wants to take a little bit of a step back to feed his creative soul." - OC Register

As Kelley "continues to stay true to himself — all while telling stories" (Albuquerque Journal), his first-ever debut track "The Driver" 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.1 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.

Stepping outside of one of the world's most popular groups Lady Antebellum, with his 2016 debut solo album Charles Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key than what listeners have been hearing from him in a group setting.
