Lady A’s Charles Kelley Moves Out From Behind the Drums to Find His Voice

Lady A’s Charles Kelley Moves Out From Behind the Drums to Find His Voice

Lady A‘s Charles Kelley shares that before he found his voice as a lead singer, he got his musical start as a drummer…but not a good one. “Something that most people probably don’t know is I actually first started playing drums before I realized I could sing. And you know, I wasn’t a very good drummer.”

But lucky for us, Charles kept with music and performing only to discover his talents lay elsewhere. “All of a sudden I started singing some and realized that I was better at that, and that the front man needed to be seen.”

Charles will be flexing his front man skills this weekend as the What A Song Can Do tour kicks off in Connecticut.

Check out the dates for the tour to see if it’s heading your way…

Here’s Charles, Dave & Hillary on the title track to their tour, and new album…

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.
