Brian Kelley Rides Solo Wave With New ‘Sunshine State Of Mind’ Project
FGL’s Brian Kelley is reaching back to his Florida roots with his solo debut, Sunshine State Of Mind, on Warner Music Nashville/Nashville South Records, Inc., available June 25. Fans can pre-order the new project now.
Six tracks are available for instant download upon pre-order, featuring BK’s Wave Pack – “Made By The Water,” “Party On The Beach,” “Beach Cowboy,” and “Sunday Service In The Sand” – in addition to brand new releases including open ocean anthem “Highway On The Water” and the serenade “Songs For You.” Kelley co-penned and co-produced the project along with Corey Crowder, and writers contributing to this love letter to the beach life include Canaan Smith, Jimmy Robbins, Blake Redferrin, and more.
Kelley welcomed viewers into his “Beach Cowboy” way-of-life by dropping four videos with the Wave Pack, and rolling out two more with the album announcement. Ditching his motorcycle and the asphalt for a “Highway On The Water,” Kelley’s collaborator Ben Christensen stars in and directs the video captured on location in his home base of Phoenix. Christensen also directed the new “Songs For You” video featuring Kelley and wife Brittney, plus local couples they met while exploring Grayton Beach, Florida.
“They say write what you know and this is the first time I really wrote for me. These songs are my babies, y’all,” shares Brian Kelley. “This project came from a real place – my experiences as a kid in Florida, getting away, and finally moving back – and it’s just been a very life-giving thing for me. I hope fans get to know a little more about me, hear my voice, and that Sunshine State Of Mind takes you on a dreamlike vacation as soon as you hit play. Welcome to Season One.”
