Lady Antebellum has been on a break for a year or so. The trio had some things going on in their personal lives and I think they also wanted to explore some other projects. That’s necessary in life and it seems especially true for creative minds. I think it’s a good thing. At some point I’m sure we’ll see the group back together. They seem happy together, but for now we still get some great individual music like this one from Charles Kelley.
The Only One Who Gets Me – Charles Kelley
This isn’t the official third single or anything from Charles Kelley, but I know it’s been getting some good attention from fans in various places including on Spotify. I’ve been hearing it for awhile now and it really stands out as a good song.
The theme is love and the title pretty much explains the situation. We have a guy that really sees the special relationship he has with someone. That person is there for him all the time. They are there to listen. They are there to provide support and offer help when it’s wanted.
It’s a toned down song, but there are still plenty of hooks that kind of get stuck in your head. And the performance by Charles is a good one. It’s not over the top, but it still stands out and is powerful.
I’m not sure why his solo record has not been getting more attention. This song is a little bit more loungy and jazzy and maybe that’s not what country fans are looking for right now.
I don’t know. What do you think?
