In the heat of the season, DIAMOND-selling superstar Brian Kelley is making his solo television performance debut with “See You Next Summer” on ABC’s Good Morning America next Tuesday (8/8). Listen here and watch the lyric video.
Marking his first time in the coveted most-added position at Country radio as a solo artist with 80 first-week stations launching “See You Next Summer” via Big Machine Records, his current single is Top 35-and-rising, while surpassing 5.2 million streams to date.
Tapping the rush of a summertime fling that turns into more, the David Garcia, Michael Hardy, and Hillary Lindsey-penned lyrics capture a part-time hookup lasting longer than just one season. Produced by Dann Huff, “See You Next Summer” sizzles with Country passion and sun-kissed Soul, as it tells the tale of a modern-day “Danny” and “Sandy.” Detailing a red-hot romance that was never meant to last, the main character falls head-over-boots and doesn’t want it to stop – even as vacation ends, and the unexpected lovers face going their separate ways. But as the sun sets one last time, can they say goodbye?
This Friday (8/4), Kelley will support his label as a headliner during the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in Nashville, TN. Performing at the Wesley Mortgage Freedom Friday Tribute Concert, the lineup also includes Chris Janson, Vince Neil (Mötley Crüe), Gavin DeGraw, and more. Fans can purchase tickets here.
ABOUT BRIAN KELLEY:
With the big, bright anthemic delivery of his new single, “See You Next Summer,” DIAMOND-selling superstar Brian Kelley enters the next chapter of a record-breaking, history-making career. Currently in the studio working on his full-length debut album with Big Machine Records, he first made waves with his independently released passion project SUNSHINE STATE OF MIND in 2021 (which American Songwriter called “some of the best modern country put to tape.”) With a sold-out run of shows and back-to-back residencies at Tribe Kelley Surf Post in Grayton Beach, FL – owned by the Ormond Beach native and his wife Brittney – Kelley continues to diversify his thriving enterprise with collaborations including cult-favorite brand Tribe Kelley with Brittney and a partnership with Oyster City Brewing Company. Kelley is managed by Kevin Spellman and Jason Murray of Vector Management. First known as the Florida half of the GRAMMY-nominated Florida Georgia Line, the ACM Breakout Artist of the Decade Award recipients garnered 19 career #1s and became the first and only act to achieve two RIAA DIAMOND singles in Country music history (14X PLATINUM #1s: “Cruise” and “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha). Surpassing 17 billion global streams, selling more than 40 million tracks and 4.8 million albums worldwide, plus playing to over 4 million fans, FGL has been honored by AMA, Billboard, CMA, and CMT Music Awards, as well as having a Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong exhibit at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
