Georgia Clay is the seventh studio album by American singer Josh Kelley. It is his first country music album, and it was released via MCA Nashville on March 22, 2011.

Content[edit]

Georgia Clay is Kelley's first release to the country music format.[4] Kelley co-wrote the title track with his brother, Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum, and album producer Clint Lagerberg.

Critical reception[edit]

Karlie Justus of Engine 145 rated the album three-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that it was "surprisingly satisfactory" but criticizing the production choices on some songs.[3] It also received three-and-a-half stars from Country Weekly reviewer Jessica Phillips, who criticized the title track for being "too familiar to be gripping", but said of the rest of the album, "Overall, Josh's sound boasts enough twang to keep it country and enough soulful passion to keep things interesting."[2] Giving it two-and-a-half stars, Andrew Leahey of Allmusic wrote that Kelley "doesn’t sound entirely convincing as a Nashville star." He also thought that Kelley's voice sounded "forced" and that the lyrics lacked hooks.[1]
