Product Description

Josh Kelley's debut country release, Georgia Clay, is an intriguing collection of songs that serve as a musical interpretation of his life story, a vivid exploration of the people and places that molded him into who he is today. Kelley is co-producer of Georgia Clay with Clint Lagerberg. 'This record is a time capsule, says Kelley, who wrote or 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 stones 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 Katherine 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 in 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 their father's 1977 Chevy Silverado and head down to the lake. The whole idea behind 'Georgia Clay' is that we could 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.In 2003, he released For the Ride Home, which contained the Top 5 hit Amazing. Two years later, he released Almost Honest and its lead single. 'OnlyYou. But shortly after that, he decided to leave Hollywood Records and start his own label, DNK Records, to have more control over his music. Between 2006 and 2008, he released four independent albums.I wanted the sound to be more rootsy and more organic, he says. That's what I had the power to do releasing my music on my own label. He now has the best of both worlds. He has joined forces with Universal Music Group to record and release his most personal music to date. Finally he is where he feels he has always belonged - Music City.

From the Artist

"This record is a time capsule," says Kelley, who wrote or 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." Along with writing/co-writing Georgia Clay, Kelley also co-produced the album with Nashville's Clint Lagerberg.

"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."

The sentimental "Naleigh Moon," a song written for and about his daughter, poignantly depicts the intense connection between a father and daughter. "We'd only had Naleigh for a couple of weeks when I wrote this and I think it's the best song I've ever written," he explains. "The way the chords and the melody intertwine, it really tugs on your heartstrings. When I sang that song in the studio, I really meant it."

"It's funny how if you keep working hard and trying, an opportunity comes around, and thank God it did. We're gonna get to move back here to Nashville, and this is where I'll be the rest of my life."

He went too far into being a country artist. Suddenly he has a twang in his voice... Really? Nowhere near the high quality of his previous work.

Josh Kelley's past records are brilliant and amazing. Especially " For the Ride home", one of the greatest albums. But Georgia Clay, the album will probably lets some of his fans left him, or stay with the "Old Kelley". Be Honest, I like Georgia clay and Naleigh moon in this album. But the rest are really not that good....."Two Cups of Coffee" is disappointed in this version, even though Allmusic says this is one the recommended songs in the album. The country voice fits wrong on him. I feel like Josh is pressing his voice while he's singing. He has a blue voice to sing good songs, but really, not for country music. I can understand his brother is in Lady A ( I love Lady A!), so he might want to follow his brother, working music together. But for me, and I believe the most of the Kelley's fan, this is a big wrong turn for him. Will Josh turns back? Hopefully.

As a pop-country album there is nothing wrong with this....but I don't really listen to music like that. I was a fan of Josh Kelley's earlier work and this CD is a drastic change of direction. When I first listened to this album I had to do a google search to see if there are two Josh Kelley's out there (literally). If you liked his earlier work, then make sure you listen to this album before buying it because it is nothing nothing nothing like his earlier work. A complete genre change and there is zero common ground in my opinion. I'm not saying anything bad about the music as I know little of the pop-country genre and am sure true country fans will like this and appreciate it. This is simply a warning to old Josh Kelley fans that could potentially blindly buy this album without realising the severe change of genre that has occurred.

I knew this was gonna be an easy, almost predictable review because I've been a longtime fan of singer/songwriter, Josh Kelley. Josh may be known as the brother of Charles Kelley, front man for the wildly successful Lady Antebellum, and while strong solid vocals obviously run in the family, that's pretty much where the comparison ends. Josh had already carved his own notch in the music industry before Lady Antebellum hit it big. From the first time I heard him sing "Almost Honest" in 2005, I knew this guy had that something special that was gonna keep his name around for awhile. Not only does he have a natural, vulnerable songwriting ability, his voice is smooth and effortless, almost soothing in it's tone. When I heard he was releasing a country cd, I knew it wasn't gonna really be that much of a crossover from pop. He's got one a rare talent that would have no difficulty with transition.

When I opened this cd and put it in the cd player, I got exactly what I expected and more - a fantastic cd from first note to last, his familiar style with minimal "tweakage" and honestly good music. I personally think this cd is chock full of some of the best music Josh has written and performed to date and that's putting it mildly. What I love about his style is that it's so easy, laid back and a far cry from alot of the "music" that's currently permeating the airwaves.

His breakout single, "Georgia Clay", is a collection of Josh's teenage memories that have never left him through the years. Yes, this kind of flashback song has been done over and over but never like Josh does it. Josh can mentally put you riding in that old truck beside him and caking the tires with that famous Georgia clay.

I apologize forefront that this review will be quite negative. I try to keep with the policy that if you do not have something nice to say, it is better not to say anything... well, in this case, I believe it is right to forewarn others when something is astray; it is only genuine. I am a huge fan of Josh Kelley (with the exception of this album). I own all of his music and follow his shows. I have seen him perform and have a fair descent amount of his songs on my list of "music for everyday listening". Having said that, I am not pleased with his newest release. I understand well enough and respect that things and people change over time. As Bob Dylan wrote, "The times, they are a changin'". However, for an artist to completely change genres is, well, please forgive my wording, sadistic. I could see and compromise with a merging of genres, for examples, an artists music generally being known as rock music, but the newest album has more of a folk-rock sound to it, or a blues artist releasing an album with more of a blues/folk, or blues/R&B sound to it (again, these are just examples). But, for an artist such as Josh Kelley to completely change his whole style of music from a soft-rock, alternative, folk-rock or whatever you want to call it (a definitive explanation of specific genre is irrelevant, knowing that no one under any circumstance would have ever called his older music as intrinsically sounding like "country" - country has a unique sound to it), and now this latest CD is strictly, 100%, no doubt about it pure country sound.Read more ›
