Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley Admits to Having Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber on His iPod
Seattle’s KMPS caught up with the sought-after Lady Antebellum trio amidst the CMT Awards and CMA Music Fest craziness last week, and somehow, they managed to get frontman Charles Kelley to admit something slightly embarrassing: He rocks out to teen pop stars Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber on his iPod.
“You know what I have that’s just undeniably awesome?” Kelley asked back when prodded about the most embarrassing song in his iPod. “Miley Cyrus’ ‘Party in the U.S.A.’ I got it in my party mix. It’s not like I ride down the road listening to it, but we had a party at the house after a CMA Awards show or something, and I was like, ‘All right, I gotta download all the songs that girls will like.’”
But as the conversation wore on, Kelley let his hair down, so-to-speak, and admitted that his guilty pleasures don’t stop there. “I had like, Britney Spears ‘Toxic’ in there, Bieber, all these random artists in there that I would never … Well, whatever, I’m trying to act cool. I listen, I love it all. Noddin’ my head like yeah. I will say, Miley Cyrus, ‘Party in the U.S.A.,’ we will be listening to that song for years. That song rocks.”
As for his own music, Kelley confirms that, yes, Lady A’s forthcoming third album ‘Own the Night’ will shake up country parties everywhere on September 13.
The band recently pocketed the award for Group Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards for their song ‘Hello World,’ and also laid down a rockin’ performance of Prince’s ‘Kiss’ blended with their own star-status new single, ‘Just a Kiss.’
