March 22nd gives us a perfect look into the life of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Josh Kelley[/lastfm]. His most recent album, Georgia Clay, is a look into everything that Josh loves….including wife Katherine Heigl, his family including brother Charles from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Antebellum[/lastfm] and their move to Utah.
All it took was some remembering of past events with brother Charles Kelley of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Antebellum[/lastfm], Josh thought of some great things to write about:
“I asked Charles whatever happened to that old truck Dad used to let us drive,” he says. “He said it was in a junkyard somewhere. I said, ‘Man, if there’s still some Georgia clay underneath it, if that Georgia clay could speak, what would it say?’ It would have seen our childhood and seen Charles and I experiencing our first everythings.
He also opened up quite a bit about his wife, actress Katherine Heigl and their family:
“This record is a time capsule,” says Josh, who wrote or co-wrote every song on the album. “It’s by far the best thing I’ve written and I’ve never been more proud. I’m proud to be in a genre where people pay attention to meaningful lyrics and truly appreciate storytelling. I feel like I’ve become more of a man with the writing of this record.”
