Josh was the elder of two children of Gayle and John W. Kelley. His younger sibling, Charles Kelley is also an acclaimed musician famous for being a member of country trio Lady Antebellum. Josh’s interest in music dates back to his age of 11, when he started playing a guitar. Alongside his brother, he subsequently founded a band named Inside Blue, and in 1994 released its first 5-song album. Josh Kelley matriculated from Lakeside High School in 1998 before enrolling at the University of Mississippi, from which he graduated majoring in art.
The official beginning of Josh Kelley’s music career occurred in 2001 when he independently released his debut album – “Changing Faces”. This accomplishment was followed by a contract with Hollywood Records in 2002, then in 2003 Kelley released his second, but first studio album, named “For the Ride Home”, which featured the hit single “Amazing”. These initial achievements provided the basis for Josh Kelley’s net worth and helped him to establish himself in the world of music.
In 2005, “Almost Honest” was released containing another hit song, “Only You”. After being released from Hollywood Records, Josh Kelley founded his own record label – Threshold – and immediately released another album, “Just Say the Word” in 2006. In 2008 “Special Company” was released by his own, but now rebranded, record label DNK Records. Later that year, Kelley under DNK Records released yet another album – “To Remember”. Countless copies sold helped Josh Kelley to add a significant sum to the overall size of his net worth.
After signing with MCA Nashville in 2009, Kelley began working on his first country music album, but in 2010 “Georgia Clay” hit the charts, and the eponymous hit single was ranked among the Hot Country Songs Top 20 Charts. Josh’s second country album was released in the first half of 2016. It is certain that all these accomplishments have dramatically increased Josh Kelley’s overall net worth.
Apart from his professional music career, Josh Kelley put some efforts towards acting. So far, he has four acting credits including a side role of Barry Maguire in the “American Dream” TV series. On the other hand, in his portfolio Josh has 15 soundtrack credits too, of which the most famous are “John Trucker Must Die” (2006), “The Ugly Truth” (2009) and “Life as We Know It” (2010). Doubtlessly, these ventures have increased Josh Kelley’s revenues by a large margin.
When it comes to his personal life, Josh Kelley has been married to the “Grey’s Anatomy” star actress Katherine Hail since 2007; they met while making his hit single “Only You” music video in 2005.
