    Charles Kelley - The Driver

    Charles has gone out on his own for this single.I get a 70's feel from this.:-)

    add date Oct 5

    I like it, it's so different for the garbage most males are releasing. Will radio embrace it?




    if this is successful what do you think this means for LA who is on hiatus?

    First, Lady A is on hiatus? What? I had no idea!? I knew the tour was over, but I didn't realize they were going on hiatus. I love Charles's voice, so I will have to listen to this later.

    Good song! I love his voice. I would be totally fine if they split up. I never cared for Hilary's voice, only Charles.

    I really like this. Good for Charles for releasing song that showcases his voice, rather than the bro-crap that we've been hearing lately. I don't know that radio will play it. They should, though.

    I think that he could go solo and find a lot of success.

    It was a really good song. Is this kind of an ode to the tour bus drivers? Seems to be.

    I have been wanting Charles to go solo since literally their first album. Hillary is fine to me, but she doesn't really stand out. Charles, on the other hand, has one of my favorite, if not my very favorite male voices in country music. Add that with the soul he puts into his singing? This is a dream come true for me.

    I really like the song but I have a question - I noticed they mentioned Dierks and Eric Pasley names on the cover. Do you know if all three co-wrote the song or do they sing on it, I couldn't tell?

    Charles is apparently going to be doing a solo project while Lady A is on it's break, they aren't going to break up, they've said they just need a break (here's an article from CMT from the beginning of September when they announced they'll be taking a break/hiatus: Lady Antebellum Planning Brief Hiatus Following Tour | CMT). Here are tweets from a little show Charles is doing tonight.

    With @HillaryScottLA & Dave's blessing, @ladyantebellum's @charleskelleyla previewing his new solo project. So good!

    For those wondering if @charleskelleyla's solo project will sound like @ladyantebellum music minus Hillary & Dave, the short answer is NO.

    He definitely has one of the best voices among the male country artists and I'm loving this song. I agree that he can be very successful as a solo artist.

    I think its a good thing Lady A is taking a break for a little bit. Ever since Need You Now they've been either chasing their own success or trends on radio. I think time off will do them good.

    Nominated for a Grammy in vocal duo group ,despite that this failed to get any traction and his tour was canceled

    or as the PR spins says -postponed so he could finish the EP,turning it into a full length cd

    I'm really hoping it's just postponed cause I had tickets to one of the shows and I was REALLY looking forward to it.
