Fountain Hills, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/07/2018 --Keeping a promise to his brother in music, and to his fans, country music artist-songwriter Mickey Kelley is ready to release his new album. And he is asking for your help to do it.
In 2014, Mickey wrote his first #1 country music radio single. He and Tailgate South bandmate Tony Lopacinski topped the charts for weeks with their smash hit "Redneck Radio." Just as Tailgate South was about to crest the wave of that hit and sign a contract with a major music label, tragedy struck: Lopacinski was diagnosed with cancer.
Mickey could have continued on without his friend, but instead he put his career on hold to support Lopacinski through his illness. Just before he passed, Lopacinski asked Mickey to make a promise: "Keep our music alive for our fans, our family, and our friends."
Today, Mickey is more determined than ever to write, record, and deliver songs that win the hearts of the country-music audience. This album is being created to keep the promise he made to his best friend and bandmate.
Mickey's new album will be recorded at one of the most elite studios in Nashville. He will be working with a team of musicians, songwriters, singers, and videographers who will capture the magic of his brand-new songs, while staying true to the dream Mickey and Tony had with Tailgate South.

"Nothing brings people together in a unified way the way that music does," says Mickey. "This is why I know that, with the heartfelt help and collaboration of our finest fans, family, friends, and people all around the world, I can deliver the promise of a dream."
