Florida Georgia Line have accomplished more in the past few years than most artists do in a lifetime. Five years since being named Forbes’ 30 Under 30, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley continue to push genre lines and industry standards as artists, label executives, publishers and producers.
On the heels of celebrating the one-year anniversary of their label Round Here Records, Florida Georgia Line exclusively reveal to Forbes that they are the newest writers signed to their own Tree Vibez Music roster. “It’s a dream come true to call Tree Vibez Music our publishing home,” Kelley and Hubbard tell me. “We’ve been extremely blessed to be able to build a company and a staff, alongside [general manager] Leslie DiPiero, that we feel confident will continue to help us grow as writers. We look forward to the next chapter of our songwriting journey with our TVM family.”
The pair met at Nashville’s Belmont University where they pursued their joint passion of songwriting. Hubbard, 33, has 13 No. 1 songs to his name including the country genre’s first diamond certification and 11-times platinum 2012 debut single “Cruise” and 9-times platinum crossover hit “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha, while Kelley, 34, has amassed 11 chart toppers with “Cruise” and cuts by Jason Aldean (“Lights Come On”) and Cole Swindell (“Hope You Get Lonely Tonight”). After creating their publishing company Tree Vibez Music in 2015, Hubbard says signing there is a “full circle” moment.
FGL and Thomas Rhett teamed up with friend and Christian artist Chris Tomlin for “Thank You Lord”. It’s an upbeat track, expressing their appreciation for the blessings they have in life. Listen here and be sure to purchase wherever you buy your music!
For Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and his wife Hayley, five is the magic number when it comes to family.
In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday, the country star says that he and Hayley — who is currently pregnant with their third child — will be “ready to be finished” having kids after the arrival of their baby boy.
“In a weird way, I think we’re looking forward to the challenge,” says Hubbard, 33. “The whole experience of having a child is like none other. It’s a rush of emotion and love that can hardly be explained. We’re looking forward to experiencing that again and then just knowing we’re going to be finished. This is our family, and let’s grow together.”
Hubbard and Hayley, 31, are already parents to son Luca, 9 months, and daughter Olivia, 2, whom they’ve been social distancing with at home in Nashville amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As to how he and Hayley have been handling isolation with an infant and a toddler, Hubbard says it’s been “more entertaining than challenging.”
Florida Georgia Line satisfied fans’ craving for new music with the release of a six-song EP on Friday (May 22).
FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard say the project, aptly titled 6-Pack, offers fans a taste of what’s to come on their forthcoming fifth studio album.
“We’ve been workin’ on our fifth record for this past year, and we’re getting pretty close to being done, and we were talking a month or two ago and kinda schemin’ up, and we said, ‘Hey, let’s put a 6-pack out,’ Kelley recalled during a recent interview with the duo’s record label. “And we all took it literal, and hey, ‘let’s kind of brand it that way, even though thematically they’re not all party songs.’ And so this collection has a serious vibe, a party vibe, a love vibe. We feel like it’s pretty well rounded.”
The release of FGL’s 6-Pack comes as people around the world continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic. Kelley hopes their new music brings some relief to fans during these uncharted times.
“You know, we’ve all been living in these uncertain times and music is healing and music touches people a lot of different ways, and so, we wanted to make sure we were balanced on this EP,” he explained. “So, [we’re] super excited to finally get this out and give our fans what they’ve been asking for, and hopefully put a smile on the world’s face.”
Florida Georgia Line’s new “6-Pack EP”, featuring 6 brand new songs off their upcoming 5th album (release date TBA) is NOW AVAILABLE to stream and purchase from your favorite music provider. The release includes the single “I Love My Country” and “Second Guessing” from NBC’s Songland.
