Charles Kelley Mesmerizes Crowd at New York’s Gramercy Theatre [Pictures]
Lady Antebellum may be taking a break, but there's no rest for Charles Kelley as he embarks on his solo tour. The tall and handsome singer brought his Driver Tour to New York's famous Gramercy Theatre recently — a smaller venue than he's used to playing with his famed trio.
Kelley released his solo single "The Driver" with Eric Paslay and Dierks Bentley before announcing this 22-date tour, of which he's already played several shows, including Tuesday's (Dec. 1) concert in New York City, New York. During the intimate evening, Kelley played music unfamiliar to the crowd — something he's not used to doing. Despite this, the crowd was locked in on the singer, hanging on his every lyric.
Kelley covered a lesser-known Tom Petty track "Southern Accents," saying he's always wanted to record it. The story got even better when he mentioned that Stevie Nicks lent her voice to the track. The dad-to-be also gushed over his unborn baby boy (due in February) and the love he received from Lady A's Hillary Scott. She texted him before the show to tell him to kick some a--, and he made her proud. Kelley sang a few Lady Antebellum songs before closing the show with his first solo single.
It was a night to remember at Gramercy Theatre, which you can experience for yourself with the above photos.
