Welcoming fans to a “Beach Cowboy” way-of-life, chill-Country superstar Brian Kelley introduces a SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND with his debut album via Warner Music Nashville / Nashville South Records, Inc. available now at all streaming platforms and digital retailers.




SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND is a big piece of me and my heart, and I’m so excited for everyone to finally hear it,” shares Kelley. “It all starts out with ‘Boat Names’ – my favorite song on the album and the very first one I wrote for it. It’s the anchor and guiding light for this project. And it’s a love song and dedication to my love, Brittney.”

Born to make waves from the start, the Ormond Beach-native blazes a sonic path through the coastal dunes of his youth, as he finds all-good inspiration while reconnecting to his Florida roots. The Tennessean raves, “Kelley spins a collection that captures barefoot beach parties, logs nautical miles and takes listeners to sandy Sunday morning services — all from a singer who promises with the album's last song to be a ‘Florida Boy Forever.’” Co-writing and co-producing the 17-track “love letter to the beach life” (MusicRow) alongside Corey Crowder, he looks beyond the water’s edge and deep dives into the place where his soul is most at peace with the “soundtrack for Summer 2021” (Taste of Country).

Leading with a “Boat Names” dedication in romantic devotion – the first song Kelley co-penned for this solo project – the Diamond-selling artist launches today (6/25) the adjoining music video directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf, and produced by Lighthouse Films and Free To Be a Filmmaker Entertainment. With passion rising like the tide and lost-in-the-sunset-style footage, the full-length cinematic clip was inspired by the beautiful real-life love story of Kelley and his wife Brittney. Filmed on the Kelleys’ “Brittney Marie” boat off the coast of Miramar Beach, FL, watch as an innocent childhood meet-cute lasts in a forever kind of love.

Best known as the Florida half of the record-setting superstar duo Florida Georgia Line, Ormond Beach-native Brian Kelley is now embarking on a sandy solo adventure. Making a splash with debut album, SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND, the chill-Country champion is capturing his lifelong connection to the Florida coast. Co-writing and co-producing the project alongside Corey Crowder for an elevated version of his typical party-ready FGL energy, the set matches Kelley’s anything-goes ethos with a new sunshine-Country strut, as a partnership between Warner Music Nashville and Kelley’s Nashville South Records, Inc. It’s the latest piece of a creative empire which has already made Kelley and his FGL partner, Tyler Hubbard, one of the best-selling Country duos in history, and true business moguls. Alongside a chart-topping catalog that includes 2020’s LIFE ROLLS ON (BMLG Records), 18 career #1 hits, and being the only act to achieve two RIAA DIAMOND-certified singles in Country music history (“Cruise” and “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha), the pair maintain thriving business initiatives in addition like FGL House, meet + greet, Round Here Records, Tree Vibez Music, Old Camp Whiskey, and Wolf Moon Bourbon (with Jason Aldean), plus a reputation as electrifying, stadium-thrilling headline performers. Diversifying his enterprise, Kelley is also hands-on with projects like upcoming musical and feature film, both titled “MAY WE ALL” with his production company CuzBro Productions; cult-favorite brand Tribe Kelley with wife Brittney; and a partnership with Oyster City Brewing Company.
