Last October, the singer bought a treehouse-inspired home built into a mountainside and set on 32 acres outside of Nashville. And as if that isn’t cool enough, Kelley and wife Brittney Marie decided to take living amongst the trees a little further.
Calling upon Pete Nelson of the Animal Planet show Treehouse Masters, the couple added a two-story “modern treehouse” to the property, complete with a recording studio, living room and master suite – and it all connects to their home via a breezeway.
“It was something I always wanted and our property is the perfect place to do it,” Kelley tells PEOPLE. “It’s honestly the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. It even has AC and plumbing It’s a man cave in the trees! A dream come true.”
So much so, the couple can’t seem to keep out of it. “Every time we’re in town, if we’re out doing something, we’re like, ‘You ready to jet and go hang out in the treehouse?’ We end every night in there. And we can’t wait to have some treehouse parties!”
The new space is also giving Kelley the chance to work from home a little bit. “For the next album, we’ll be doing the vocals there in the studio and I’m going to be writing out there all the time. I’ll be putting it to work because it’s the perfect inspirational place,” he says. “We feel very blessed to have it. It’s very spiritual. I want to make music out there and bring friends over and just enjoy it.”
