Sneak Peak of Josh Kelley Interview in Latest US Weekly Issue. Well, country fans, you may not know who Josh Kelley is just yet because he is a little new to the country scene. If you are familiar with Josh, it is probably for his recently released album, out March 22nd of this year, Georgia Clay. You might also be familiar with his catchy single off this album of the same name. While Georgia Clay marks Josh’s country debut, he is certainly not new to music in general. Kelley has a whole host of albums preceding his country debut from a wide range of genres including For The Ride Home (rock), Special Company (pop), and To Remember (alternative). This progression suggests Josh has been playing the role of Goldie Locks in trying to find the right genre, and maybe country will fit him just right. I guess whether or not this switch will prove successful for him is up to country fans, and ya’ll are not easily won over (thank goodness). To help you get to know this newcomer a little better, you can check Kelley out in the latest issue of US Weekly which hits stands Friday, July 15th. Below you will find a sneak peak of the feature, a list of 25 things you don’t know about him (They probably should have included that he’s a country artist in that list.) It’s an interesting list, but #20 seems a bit obvious. #4-5 are the most interesting in my opinion, and #6, #9 and #21 show off his down home roots.

Josh Kelley Releases His Second Single Gone Like That.” Josh Kelley debuted his new single “Gone Like That” Tuesday, May 23 on CBS’s The Talk. “Gone Like That” is the second single to be released from Josh’s debut country album, Georgia Clay on which he wrote or co-wrote each of the 15 tracks. This particular single is especially poignant as it played a role in his transition into being a country singer/songwriter. “When I sent “Gone Like That” into my publisher to pitch to a country artist, he said he really wanted me to record it. Hearing his reaction to this song really gave me the confidence to pursue making a country album – something I wanted to do for a long time. Writing and recording ‘Gone Like That’ really made that dream of mine seem real and achievable and I’m so excited for it to be a single.” -Josh Kelley Josh has most recently been on tour with Miranda Lambert and will join Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now tour in August and September. You can check out Josh’s Live performance on The Talk here. [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjVKXPBUZyM]
