Overview

Josh Kelley's debut country release, Georgia Clay, is an intriguing collection of songs that serve as a musical interpretation of his life, a vivid exploration of the people and places that molded him into who he is today.

"The record is a time capsule," says Kelley, who co-wrote each of the album's 11 songs. "It's by far the best thing I've written, and I've never been more proud. I'm finally in a genre where I can write lyrics, tell stories, and be a man."

His most autobiographical project to date, the album powerfully captures the most important moments of his life, including his marriage to actress Catherine Heigl, their adoption of a daughter, Naleigh, and the family's move to Utah. "My life has completely changed," he says. "My wife is a very strong independent woman and she allows me my own independence. And from the first time my baby girl brushed her hand against my face, my life was changed. This album reflects those changes."

It also describes the defining moments of his early life. "Georgia Clay," the project's lead single, recalls the carefree summers of Josh's youth, when he and his brothers would hook up jet skis to his father's 1977 Chevy Silverado and head down to the lake. "The whole idea behind Georgia Clay is that we would go back to the garage and look at that truck, which hadn't been driven in years, and still find layers of mud stuck to the tires," Kelley says. "That is the mud from our childhood. Those memories are still there." From the Label
