Reckless Kelly Announce 'Bulletproof Live,' Share 'You Don't Have to Stay Forever' [Premiere]

Texas country-rockers Reckless Kelly are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their seminal album Bulletproof with the release of Bulletproof Live (out June 21 via Thirty Tigers), a 15-track live album that was recorded in the summer of 2018.

Ahead of the album's release, Reckless Kelly is premiering the live recording of "You Don't Have to Stay Forever"exclusively on Wide Open Country.

"'You Don't Have To Stay Forever' has always been a fun song to play because it's a little different in structure than some of our other tunes. I love interesting melodies and songs that go places you don't expect them to," says band member Cody Braun. "Songs start out as nothing but ideas and only once they're written down and recorded do they become something real and tangible. The strong ones survive and if they're played enough live over a long period of time they eventually take on a second life and even sometimes new meanings. We wanted to capture that."

Listen to the live recording of "You Don't Have to Stay Forever" below.

Reckless Kelly will kick off their 2019 tour on May 16. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, see below.
