MCA Nashville singer/songwriter Josh Kelley will release his debut country album, Georgia Clay, on March 22.
Georgia Clay is Josh’s most autobiographical album to date and powerfully describes the most important moments of his life, including his marriage to actress Katherine Heigl, their adoption of daughter Naleigh and the family’s move to Utah.
“This record is a time capsule,” says Josh, who wrote or co-wrote every song on the album. “It’s by far the best thing I’ve written and I’ve never been more proud. I’m proud to be in a genre where people pay attention to meaningful lyrics and truly appreciate storytelling. I feel like I’ve become more of a man with the writing of this record. Everybody that knows me has said it’s by far the best album I’ve ever made. Everything I’ve learned over the last seven years has led up to this point.”
Adding to Josh’s list of song writing credits is the theme song to the CBS television show Mike & Molly. Josh co-wrote I See Love with Keb’ Mo’, who sings the song in the version selected as the Mike & Molly theme.
“The Mike & Molly theme song came around sort of randomly,” Josh says. “In 2004, I called up Keb’ Mo’ and said, ‘I’d really love to write a song with you.’ He called me back and said, ‘Let’s do it.’ I drove up to his house and we sat around for a while and we wrote this song called ‘I See Love.’
