Charles Kelley’s Miley Cyrus Cover Will Hit You Like A ‘Wrecking Ball’

Charles Kelley’s latest cover has clawed and chained its way into our hearts, and now, we’re under his spell. 

The country singer and founding member of Lady Antebellum just released his own rendition of Miley Cyrus’ smash hit (pun intended) “Wrecking Ball” and we can’t stop watching. 

Kelley recorded the cover (which is posted on Vevo) as part of the 1 Mic 1 Take challenge, making it even more impressive. It’s slower and grittier than the original, but it still hits you right in the gut. He didn’t shed any tears, though. 

Kelley spoke to People about his choice to cover the song, saying:

I’ve always thought that song was one of the best written songs I’d ever heard. I think Miley does an amazing job on it. I always thought it was an amazing song, no matter what genre it even lived in. Music like that — it just transcends genre. I thought it would catch people off-guard.

You can watch the whole video below, but just be warned, it might wre-e-e-ck you. 

Kelley covered “Wrecking Ball” once before, during a radio show appearance last October, and it was just as great. 

Now, excuse us while we watch these videos on repeat until Kelley’s debut solo album, “The Driver,” drops on Friday.
