Josh Kelley remembers his college sweetheart in a music video for his second single "Gone Like That". The husband of actress Katherine Heigl recalls the first time they met, fell in love, and drew apart after his proposal was turned down by her.
"I wrote 'Gone Like That' based on a real-life experience," he said. "When I was in college, there was this crazy, amazing girl who I'd see from time to time, but it was always fleeting. Every time, she'd come crash at my place, then the next thing you'd know, she'd be gone."
Unlike in the clip, he never had a chance to propose to her in real life because she "always seemed to disappear." He shared, "There were like forty clubs in the area, and she'd always show up at the one I was hanging out at. We'd meet up, but then ... we never had the time to explore our relationship."
"Gone Like That" is lifted from Josh's seventh studio album "Georgia Clay" which has been in stores since March. The song was written by him a few years ago, and was intended as a demo for other artists. He said, "I was trying to get it cut. I wanted a big cut. I promised my wife [Katherine] I'd buy a beach house ... I gotta make some cash here!"
