Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley Talks Solo Venture
“‘The Driver’ is my last eight years of my life put in a song,’ the Georgia native says. ‘It was an idea I had for a year: I’m the driver bringing the circus to town — first one in, last rolling out. . . ‘”
Technically, it’s his debut solo single, but Kelley laughs that he’s “taking a break from one trio and putting out a song by another trio. . . of dudes!” Those other “dudes” include Paslay and Dierks Bentley, who each take a verse of the tune and harmonize on the choruses. Kelley explains that he decided to make “The Driver” a vocal collaboration after witnessing the strong reactions from record label executives when he played them the demo. He had a feeling it would be his first track released to radio and wanted it to really stand out.
