Katherine Heigl is Josh Kelley's Inspiration

by at . Comments

After Josh Kelley completed his second album, Almost Honest, and signed the papers for a new home, the last thing on the singer-songwriter's mind was writing new material.

Until he fell in love with Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl, that is.

"I've never been more prolific than when I'm with Katie," Kelley tells AOL Music. "Our conversations, kisses and her beauty inspire me daily."

To that end, the Georgia-born Kelley released Just Say the Word, a markedly personal effort, this summer.

Songs like "How the Story Goes" and "Bound to Keep Movin" are laced with musings on his relationship with Heigl, both borne from ecstasy and affliction.

"'Bound to Keep Movin' is a lash of frustration on the distance our professions keep between us. I wanted to give her a song that would make her feel confident in my love but also aware of my passion for music and the road," Kelley said.

The two got engaged over the summer. Despite conflicting schedules, Kelley says he does find time to support Heigl's art as she supports his.

"Sometimes I get to watch Grey's Anatomy as it's being filmed," he says. "Sometimes we watch it together. It's unbelievable how [Katherine] can take herself out of reality and watch the show as if she had nothing to do with it. I wish I could listen to my music for the first time. Unfortunately that's impossible."

Sounds like high praise for the talented young woman who plays Izzie... and like Katie has found a big fan in her future husband.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
