Brian Kelley treated attendees at this month's Jags Country UK event to a plethora of new unreleased tracks, which are all due to feature on the ‘Dirt Cheap’ songsmith's sophomore album.
Kelley's summery, high-energy set felt like a brief escape into a tropical, care-free paradise, with the Florida native including escapist gems such as the breezy ‘Made By The Water’ and the swaggering ‘Beach Cowboy’ in his setlist, much to fans’ delight.
Excitingly, Brian Kelley also performed a trio of new unreleased songs, including his sweet, rose-tinted take on a rural romance, ‘Dirt Road Date Night’, along with the ferocious, down-home anthem, ‘How We Livin’, and the heartwarming ode to his wife, ‘King Ranch’.
All three are widely expected to appear on Kelley's hotly anticipated Sunshine State Of Mind follow-up, which will venture thematically away from the beach and towards the countryside.
Fans are already calling for these unreleased tracks to be made available sooner rather than later, with the hit singer-songwriter still finishing up the recording process for his new project.

Despite showcasing another dimension to his sound and brand with recent singles, such as ’See You Next Summer’, Brian Kelley's Jags Country UK performance still captured the welcome beachside warmth that pervaded his debut album.
This was most evident when he covered Jimmy Buffett's iconic track, ‘Margaritaville’, with Kelley's set also featuring a stellar rendition of Alan Jackson's ‘Chattahoochee’.
