Inspired by his journey to get sober, Charles Kelley of Lady A released a brand new song. His touching new song, “As Far As You Could Go” is an incredible ballad that will hit home for many people. Kelley pours his heart into the song, sharing the details of his addiction while inspiring hope too.
The confessional song is a true letter to alcohol, the vice that got him through so many moments throughout his life. It marks the turning point for himself, his sobriety. As a songwriter, Kelley has the unique ability to wear his heart on his sleeve, even when expressing topics that are tough for many to hear about. “As Far As You Could Go” is one of the most important songs in country music right now.
“But you scared me half to death // Thought I couldn’t hit that stage // Without you runnin’ through my veins // Now I sing the songs I always have // But the meaning’s bound to change // ‘Cause you took me high, but you sure as hell brought me down // We said goodbye, but I’m gonna see you around // And to tell the truth, I thought I never would // But it’s time I finally put you down for good // ‘Cause you’ve taken me as far as you could”
“This song is my goodbye letter to alcohol…” Kelley shared. “I wrote ‘As Far As You Could’ with my bandmate Dave and the talented Jimmy Robbins and this is the demo. This song was very therapeutic to write and I hope it can meet someone where they are.” Congrats to Kelley for having the courage to share this song with the world!
