  3. DJ/Producer Audien released a brand new official video for his single “Something Better” featuring Lady Antebellum. Premiering on USA Today, the visually stunning video features a daydreaming boy gazing into the stars wondering if there is anything out there when a meteor crashes near his farm and he stubbles across something that’ll forever change his life for the better.  
    "It's been amazing to watch fans from different musical planets gravitate toward ‘Something Better.’  I'm excited to share this fitting video that beautifully compliments the track, and keeps us wondering who is out there..." - Audien
    “I’ve loved getting feedback from fans on this collaboration,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “I just heard it for the first time on the radio in Nashville the other day! It reminded me how music connects people who might not otherwise have really been country fans and vice versa. I love that this video shares that same spirit and puts a fun spin on the powerful lyric of the song.” 
    “Something Better” keeps climbing the charts and doesn’t seem to show any signs of slowing down. The single reached #1 at Dance Radio topping Calvin Harris and Zedd, climbed to #1 on the Billboard Club Chart, and was added to New York’s #1 pop station Z100, KISS FM in Los Angeles, Sirius Hits 1 plus over 90 other Top 40 stations. “Something Better” has also received a plethora of praises from press including USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Perez Hilton, being #2 in PopCrush’s “Hot & New” in October, Rollingstone, Billboard, #1 on Hollywire’s “Unexpected Musical Collaborations”, and many more!

  5. Charles Kelley continues to map out plans for new music with the announcement of THE DRIVER TOUR, picked up by Enterprise with special guest Maren Morris. The 22-city club tour will make its first stop at House of Blues in Cleveland, OH on November 28th and continue through the winter with tickets on sale this Friday (10/16) at 10A local time on

  6. Charles, Hillary and Dave sit down with ABC News' Juju Chang and explain why they plan to take some downtime after the successful "Wheels Up" tour ends.

  7. Revealing official details on Good Morning America this morning, Charles Kelley sends “The Driver” to Country radio today as the debut single from his forthcoming solo project on Capitol Records Nashville. 
    Written by Kelley, Eric Paslay and Abe Stoklasa and born in a ratty studio in the back of producer Paul Worley’s offices, Kelley explores new territory with a raw sound that pushes his vocals into a lower, grittier key than what listeners have been hearing from him in a group setting. His unmatched perspective of hours spent on the road pursuing a life-long dream is present through his impeccable voice, along with special guests Dierks Bentley and Paslay. 
    “The perspective seemed like a Crosby, Stills, and Nash story song,” Kelley says of the lyrics. “We went in the studio to record it with no agenda. I thought maybe it’ll be the start of the next Lady Antebellum record, maybe we’ll scrap it, maybe I’ll pitch the song to other singers.”
    “Having Hillary and Dave's support means a lot to me,” adds Kelley. “We love each other and we’re having a blast. This was just a pure musical detour, to take myself out of my own head and off the treadmill for a minute. I hope and think it can bring in a fresh perspective when we go back in to make the next Lady Antebellum record.”
    Fans who missed Kelley’s sit-down with ABC’s Juju Chang this morning can watch it HERE and listen to “The Driver” here:
    Tonight, Kelley will also appear on ABC's Nightline (ABC at 11:35P CT) when Lady Antebellum takes cameras backstage for their sold out first headlining hometown arena show in Nashville, TN. For more information and for a full list of upcoming appearances, visit
