Early life and career[edit] Kelley was born in Augusta, Georgia, the youngest of three boys of Gayle and Dr. John W. Kelley, a cardiologist. He began his musical career at the age of 11. His older brother, Josh Kelley, is also a musician and singer. As teenagers, Charles, Josh and oldest brother John formed a band called Inside Blue; the band released a five-song CD that garnered the attention of a major label.[2] In middle school, Kelley met Dave Haywood[3] and, at the age of 14, they wrote their first song. They both graduated from Lakeside High School in Evans, Georgia. Kelley attended the University of Georgia
University of Georgia
in Athens, Georgia, where he was a member of the Nu Zeta chapter of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.[4] He graduated in 2004 with a degree in finance.[5] Before moving to Nashville, Tennessee, in mid-2005 to pursue a musical career, Kelley worked in his brother John's construction business in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, as an accountant for an affiliated waste management company.[6] Kelley made the move after his brother Josh, who was a pop musician at the time, bought a house in Nashville and convinced him to come live there so they could write songs together.[7] Musical career[edit] Lady Antebellum[edit] Main article: Lady Antebellum Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood

The album included the trio's debut hit, "Love Don't Live Here", along with the singles, "Lookin' for a Good Time" and "I Run to You", the latter of which became their first number one hit on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in July 2009. It was certified platinum by the RIAA in October 2009. In 2008, they returned to Charles' and Dave's former high school alma mater, Lakeside High School, and performed a short concert in the gymnasium. In January 2010, Lady Antebellum

Tour which was also their first arena and world tour. On October 22, 2012, On This Winter's Night, the band's first Christmas album was released. One of the tracks on the album "A Holly Jolly Christmas" was released to Country radio and AC radio. A music video for the single was made. Shortly after the release of On This Winter's Night, Lady Antebellum started working on their fifth studio album. Golden was released on May 7, 2013. "Downtown" was the album's first single and peaked at number two on Country radio and number one on the US Country Airplay chart. It was certified platinum by the RIAA.

released "You Look Good", the lead single off their upcoming seventh studio album Heart Break. The album will be released on June 9, 2017, and will support it on the You Look Good Tour.[9] Solo career[edit] During the band's break, Kelley focused on a solo project and said that Lady Antebellum

is his priority but he wanted to try working alone out. On September 28, 2015, he released his debut solo single "The Driver" which features Dierks Bentley
Dierks Bentley
and Eric Paslay. Kelley revealed on GMA that he started working on his solo project six months prior to his single's release.[8] "The Driver" received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.[10] His solo debut studio album The Driver was released on February 5, 2016.[11] Other projects[edit] Kelley's other works consist of co-writing songs for other artists, mainly with Lady Antebellum
Lady Antebellum
bandmate, Dave Haywood. One of those songs was "Do I" on labelmate Luke Bryan's 2009 album, Doin' My Thing.[12] Written in late 2008, the song was released to radio in April 2009 and peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in December of that year.[13] The song also featured Lady Antebellum's HIllary Scott on background vocals.[12] In 2006, prior to forming the band, Kelley released a solo album called 2 to 9's. The record met with little mainstream success, but was well-rated by listeners.[14] In 2009, Kelley and Haywood penned a song called "It's Only" for Danny Gokey's debut album, My Best Days, with "I Run to You" cowriter, Tom Douglas.[15] That same year, the two also wrote "Love Song" with Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, which Lambert would later record for her third studio album, Revolution, and Kelley would sing background on.[16] In 2010, Kelley and Haywood wrote "Kiss Me Slowly" with Will Anderson, lead singer of the pop rock band, Parachute. The song made it on to Parachute's second studio album, The Way It Was, and was released to iTunes in the weeks leading up to the release of the album.[17] That same year, Kelley, along with Scott and Haywood, recorded a duet with Maroon 5
Maroon 5
called "Out of Goodbyes" as Lady Antebellum. The song was included on Maroon 5's third studio album, Hands All Over, but was never released as a single.[18] In addition, Kelley has co-written numerous songs for his brother, Josh Kelley. Those songs are "Just Say the Word" and "Pop Game" on Josh's 2006 album, Just Say the Word, which were written by the brothers with Haywood;[19] "Lift Me Up" and "Stay Awake" on 2008's Special
Company;[20] and "Georgia Clay" and "Ain't Lettin' Go" on his 2011 country debut, Georgia Clay.[21] Kelley and Haywood co-wrote the semi-autobiographical track "Better Than This" on (Encore), the 2013 re-issue of rising country star Hunter Hayes' self-titled debut album.[22] Personal life[edit] Kelley is married to music rep Cassie McConnell. The couple wed in a Nashville courthouse in late June 2009 as a legal formality before having a destination wedding in the Bahamas. After the wedding, Lady Antebellum tweeted a photo of Kelley showing off his wedding band, saying, "What is that you see on Charles' hand... yep a wedding ring!!!" McConnell represents several country musicians, including her brother-in-law, Josh Kelley. Charles and Cassie wed on July 6, 2009. On Aug 7, 2015, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child in February 2016. On August 28, 2015, his wife Cassie appeared on Good Morning America
Good Morning America
to reveal her fertility struggle and also announced they were expecting a baby boy.[23][24][25] The couple welcomed their son Ward Charles Kelley
Charles Kelley
on February 11, 2016.[26] As a result of his brother Josh Kelley's marriage, Kelley is the brother in-law of actress Katherine Heigl. Kelley had the lyrics, "All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise," from the Beatles
song, "Blackbird", tattooed on his right forearm in early 2009.[27] In 2010, Kelley got a second tattoo, a design of the "flower of life", on his upper left arm.[citation needed] In addition to being an avid golfer,[28] Kelley is a motorcycle enthusiast and owns a 2006 Harley Softail
