Lonely Girl

Album: The Driver (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-written by Chris Stapleton and songwriter Jesse Frasure, this has been on Kelley's list to record for a while. "I've wanted to record this song, even with Lady Antebellum, since I heard it three years ago," Kelley told The Huffington Post.
  • Kelley told IHeartRadio why he was so enthused to record this song: "I knew I needed something off the record that had a little bit more groove to it," he said. "Because a lot of the songs are a little more introspective and heavy."

    "And 'Lonely Girl,' the lyrics are even a little arrogant. It's like, anytime you get lonely, just put this record on, and, I'm right there with you," Kelley continued. "For me, though, this song's all about the groove and the vocal delivery. I wanted to find songs, too, that pulled out a grittier side, and this song definitely did."
