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.
Kelley has become the man, father and husband he always knew he was meant to be, an evolution that couldn’t have occurred without great reflection on his Georgia roots and the values and principles on which he was raised. Naturally, this personal introspection profoundly influenced his music, resulting in an authentic and undeniable country sound that’s based upon soul-searching yet universal lyrics and themes. “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.
