February is going to be big month for Charles Kelley, both professionally and personally.
The Georgia native is set to release his solo album, The Driver, on February 5. Additionally, the singer and his wife, Cassie, are expecting their first child, a baby boy, that same month.
“Some would say great timing and some would say poor timing,” Kelley, 34, tells The Associated Press. “You can never predict when a baby is going to come, but I am so excited.”
The album includes Kelley’s current GRAMMY-nominated single, “The Driver,” which also features Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay. The Driver will also feature duets with Stevie Nicks and Miranda Lambert.
Kelley isn’t the only Lady Antebellum member working on a new project during the trio’s break. Hillary Scott is currently working on a Gospel album with her family. It’s expected to be released early this year.
