Says Brian Kelley, "I love building, love creating, love being surrounded by an amazing team, and have found endless inspiration in the fact that I can use my voice in any interest that I have. Forming CuzBro, and our new partnership with Lively McCabe, gives me a fresh and exciting creative channel. I couldn't be more thrilled to have this musical feature the songs of so many of my buddies and artists who've inspired me. Can't wait to bring this project to the stage and beyond."
