Lady A‘s Charles Kelley is combining several of his passions into a new song that he released for this year’s PGA Masters Tournament.
It’s his love of music, golf and Ray Charles…specifically the iconic song “Georgia On My Mind” that’s all coming together for Charles in 2022.
Charles shared, “Growing up in Augusta, Georgia, I’ve been singing Ray Charles’ ‘Georgia On My Mind’ for as long as I can remember. I even sang it alongside Dave Haywood several years ago for the UGA commencement speech we gave. Getting to perform a version of this song for ESPN’s coverage of the Masters Tournament is a true full circle moment for me.”
The 86th Masters Tournament is schedule to be played at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia starting April 7th 2022, with play lasting until the 10th of April.
