Brian Kelley Loves Boat Names – Including His Own, Which Has a Very Special Name

Brian Kelley Loves Boat Names – Including His Own, Which Has a Very Special Name

Brian Kelley recently checked off a bucket list item…growing up in Florida he always wanted to have a big boat, and this year he got it.

BK now owns a 56 foot Sunny Briggs sport fishing boat – and if you’re curious to see what it looks like, you’re in luck…it has it’s own Instagram account.

No. We’re not kidding…

But even more than the boat, what fascinates BK is what, and how, people choose the names of the boats – which of course ties into one the tracks on his new album Sunshine State Of Mind – “Boat Names”

Brian shares, “Me and Brittney, we bought a big boat in January. And that was my dream – ‘Babe, one of these days I’m gonna make your name one of them boat names.’ That’s what I kept tellin’ her, you know. I love boats, I love boat names. I think boat names tell a lot about the person in the boat, and they tell so many stories. They’re so unique and they’re just so intriguing. And so, end of last year came, and I was like, ‘Babe, I think I found us a boat that checks off everything on our list.’ I was like, ‘That’s the Brittney Marie right there.'”

When he’s not on his boat, or in the studio making music, you’ll find Brian Kelley in the sand – living up to his nickname…”Beach Cowboy.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
