Lady Antebellum may be going on hiatus, but Charles Kelley is already staying busy!

Not only are he and his wife, Cassie, about to be first-time parents in February, he also announced that his first solo album will be released the same month!

"Some would say great timing and some would say poor timing," Kelley said. "You can never predict when a baby is going to come, but I am so excited."

His solo project, titled The Driver, is set for release on February 5th. On it, Kelley explores his musical upbringings from 70s folk to Southern rock.

The Driver includes Kelley's Grammy nominated single of the same name, which also features Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay. The album includes separate duets with Miranda Lambert and the legendary Stevie Nicks.

Although he seems to be on the fast track to stardom as a solo artist, there have been a few bumps in the road. He announced a solo club tour, which he ended up postponing to finish recording the album.

Being a solo artist starting from scratch is going to take some getting used to.  With Lady Antebellum, they started out playing in amphitheaters and arenas opening for Martina McBride, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw.

"You get used to hearing 15,000 people scream and sing your songs back that it's a little jarring," he admits. "I have to walk off the stage and go, 'OK I am going for a different response here.'"

His bandmate, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood, tweeted their excitement for their "brother".

 

We can't wait until February 5th! Until then, listen to his Grammy nominated single "The Driver" below.

Lyrics Below

I'm the driver, bringing their circus to town
First one in and the last rolling out, shutting down
The up all-nighter, all the stars and sunrises I've seen
Every corn field and town in between
West to east

Oh, easy come easy go, yeah we rock then we roll out of town
But for now while the moment is here
Shine a light drink a beer, let's get loud
All the drivers and dreamers, believers and singers
Oh won't you sing with me now
Oh oh woah, oh
Oh oh-oh oh oh oh

I'm the dreamer, soaking up every line
Searching for truth all the time, oh yeah
The believer, that music can save a soul
The one who's at every show in the front row, singin'

Oh, easy come easy go, yeah we rock then we roll out of town
But for now while the moment is here
Shine a light drink a beer, let's get loud
All the drivers and dreamers, believers and singers
Oh won't you sing with me now
Oh oh woah, oh
Oh oh-oh oh oh oh

Yeah!
Oh!

I'm the singer, pouring out all that I had
Every love song and heart break gone bad
And looking back, when I was younger
Sitting right there where you are
Sending a prayer to the highest star
And here we are

Oh here we are

Oh, easy come easy go
Yeah we rock then we roll out of town
But for now while the moment is here
Shine a light drink a beer, let's get loud
The drivers and dreamers, believers and singers
Oh won't you sing with me now
Oh oh woah, oh
Oh oh-oh oh oh oh
Oh oh woah, oh
Oh oh-oh oh oh oh
