I'm humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I've been dreaming and scheming up to the next level," said Kelley. "This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what's next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y'all."
"We are honored that Brian Kelley chose WMN as home to his solo endeavors," said Warner Music Nashville EVP A&R Cris Lacy. "I've been an FGL believer from day one, and BK's clear vision for himself and his upcoming project is a testament to his heart, soul, and talent. His new music is the perfect antidote to 2020, and what an incredible way to start 2021."
