Charles Kelley is releasing his goodbye note to liquor.

On December 23, the Lady A musician launched a new track describing his struggle with addiction. Named “As Far As You Could,” the personal music is a verse about the national singer’s public decision to quit drinking and start treatment.

“For me, the greatest word I’ve been holding on to is gratitude, not dignity,” Charles said in a media release. “I’m thankful. I finally see the light and am linking with what life is all about.”

“Some days are hard, but the good so overshadows those flawed moments,” the 41-year-old Georgia native added. 

“There’s some loveliness in all this, and I’ve had time to recall, get healthy, and compose. I’ve probably penned 50 pieces this fall, leading to this music.

Co-penned and produced with Lady A bandmate Dave Haywood and Jimmy Robbin, the music has a reflective chorus where Charles sings about ending a not-so-healthy addiction.

According to Charles, the music—like his way to sobriety—has the full backing of Lady A.

In August, Lady A declared they were delaying their Request Line Tour so Charles could concentrate on his sobriety.

Soon after, Charles would appreciate his band and buffs for their support. “Getting on that location and being able to see, listen and feel everything through a more transparent lens is going to be a blessing that I won’t take for granted,” he said on August 12. 

“I’m thankful for this time to concentrate on my family and my health.”

Lady A is planned to kick off a new tour on April 14, 2023, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.
