Charles Kelley’s ‘Lonely Girl’ Video Is Sexy
Charles Kelley brings his A-game in his "Lonely Girl" video, showing off his seductive side to one particularly gorgeous lady who has recently loved and lost.
The '70s-flavored scenes show Kelley trying to ease her pain with his sexy tune. But the woman spends the first portion of the video continuing to lament her breakup in various settings from an era gone by — listening to records on orange shag carpeting, lounging on a retro couch in a wood paneled room — and ignoring him.
Gradually, though, she is won over by the catchy tune, starts to dance and eventually cracks a smile. Though nothing ever happens between the two, Kelley and the leading lady have an undeniable chemistry that fits the song’s sultry vibe perfectly.
Penned by none other than Chris Stapleton along with Jesse Frasure, Kelley had loved the song since he first heard it, but didn’t think it was a great fit for Lady Antebellum to record. The slinking verses and dancey chorus give it a unique sound perfect for Kelley’s soulful vocals, making it one of the tracks fans have latched onto.
“It was so obvious when the record came out that the fans were responding to that the most. When we were talking about performing on the show the producers were like ‘We would love for you to do ‘Lonely Girl.’ And we were like ‘Perfect timing,'” he tells Taste of Country.
The song is his second single from Kelley's solo record The Driver, the title track from which was nominated for a Grammy this past year. Now Kelley is back on the road with the gang from Lady A, touring at festivals around the country for the summer.
