Move over Luke Bryan, Lady A’s Charles Kelley can shake it too

Ok, so he ain’t no Luke Bryan. But you gotta give some credit to Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley for at least trying to shake it like Luke.

At a March 1 tour stop in Sweden, on the European leg of their headlining “Wheels Up Tour 2015,” Kelley showed off some of his impressive dance moves while covering the Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton classic “Islands In the Stream” alongside trio mates Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood.

Just a few short days later, Lady Antebellum released their latest single “Long Stretch of Love” off their fifth studio album “747” — a song that the trio has already been playing while on tour overseas. “‘Long Stretch Of Love’ sounds like we feel right now […] it’s bold, upbeat and fresh,” said Scott in a recent press release. “It’s the perfect song to go into a new tour with […] in fact, we should kick our set off with it every night!”

“What really makes this song special and different to me is how we used an uncommon instrument called a Woodrow, which brings an Appalachian feel into this high energy track,” added “747” producer Nathan Chapman. “That unique sound combined with their vocals — which may be the most powerful Lady A has ever sounded — it just leaves the listener breathless.”
