On Tuesday, May 24, singer/songwriter Josh Kelley is set to visit the ladies of CBS‘ popular live chatfest, The Talk. While there, he’ll perform his latest single, Gone Like That, the second release from his recent country debut project, Georgia Clay.
Gone Like That isn’t the typical she’s gone and I don’t care take of a one night stand, instead it explores an unapologetically sensitive man who keeps running into what could be the woman of his dreams. Like many of the songs on Josh‘s new album, Gone Like That is somewhat autobiographical. Josh explains it this way, “When I was in college, there was this crazy, amazing girl who I’d see from time to time, but it was always fleeting,” he says. “Every time, she’d come crash at my place, then the next thing you’d know, she’d be gone. There were like 40 clubs in the area, and she’d always show up at the one I was hanging out at. We’d meet up, but then she always seemed to disappear and we never had the time to explore our relationship.”
It’s also interesting to note that Gone Like That was initially sent to his publisher in hopes of getting an established country star to record it, but when he laid down the vocals, he was told he should cut the song himself, thus beginning his current career path.
Tuesday’s appearance onThe Talk isn’t the singer’s first foray into the talk show circuit. Nationwide fans first took notice of the singer/songwriter in 2003 when his single Amazing landed at #5 on the charts. While enjoying the success of that single and subsequent releases, Josh appeared on Ellen, Good Morning America, Live with Regis & Kelly and more.
Audiophiles with a keen ear for recognizing vocals might also have recently noted his song, Beautiful Goodbye, which can be heard during promos for Oprah Winfrey‘s final show airing this Wednesday, May 25. The track, originally included in his 2006 Just Say The Word cd, plays during the Oprah promo that poses the questions Where Were You/Where Will You Be? as images from some of TV’s most memorable finales are seen, culminating with some of Oprah’s best-loved clips.
