Brian and Tyler were on The Ellen Show today to perform “Talk You Out Of It” and Ellen surprised Tyler and Hayley with the gender reveal of their upcoming baby! Let’s just hope it’s correct because we all remember how last time around went… CONGRATULATIONS!!
Tyler even said that Olivia took her first steps backstage! What an exciting day!
Seven years in a massive career, Florida Georgia Line has realized the best recipe for self-satisfaction is to tune out the noise & create their own.
When you’ve been as wildly successful as Florida Georgia Line, and have multi-platinum singles, chart-topping albums, sold-out arena tours and a name-brand bar-restaurant just off Nashville’s famed Broadway to your name, you start to learn to take the chatter surrounding your band for what it’s worth. “Because people are either gonna say good stuff or bad stuff, but regardless, they’re gonna be talking,” FGL’s Tyler Hubbard says with a laugh of the constant opinions that have long swirled around him and bandmate Brian Kelley.
Yes, now seven years into a monumentally successful career, Florida Georgia Line have realized the best recipe for self-satisfaction is to tune out the noise and create their own. “We really just want to continue to push the envelope for ourselves and elevate what we do,” Hubbard says of their never-ending desire for musical reinvention. “We want it to be fun for us because if it’s not fun for us it’s not going to be fun for the fans. We don’t want to get bored. That’s why I think we always try to continue and push and take chances and do things a little bit differently.”
For FGL, doing things differently has long been their lifeblood, and while they insist it’s almost subconscious at this point, their need to evolve has been a life force in becoming one of the most commercially successful country acts of their generation. Still, to hear them tell it, the two musicians insist it simply stems from their stubborn insistence on never getting too comfortable.
Brian and Tyler celebrated the release of “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country” with a concert in NYC. The show was broadcasted on Youtube to give everyone else a chance to enjoy. FGL performed a lot from Can’t Say I Ain’t Country including “Colorado,” “Simple,” “Meant To Be,” “People are Different,” “Swerve” and “Y’all Boys.” The guys also performed fan favorites like “H.O.L.Y.,” “How We Roll,” “Round Here,” “Up Down,” and closed the show with their 2012 smash hit single “Cruise” (and a few shots of whiskey, of course).
IT’S HERE! FGL have officially released their 4th studio album, “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country”! Go pick it up in stores, or wherever you buy your digital music!
Featuring collaborations with Jason Derulo, Jason Aldean and HARDY, Brian and Tyler have said that this is their most country album to date: and they don’t disappoint. From start to finish, it’s almost as if the songs tell a story. The skits featuring Brother Jervel add a comedic element which ties some songs together.
I can say that for me, nothing will ever top the “Anything Goes” album, but my faves on this one are “Like You Never Had It”, “Can’t Hide Red” and (of course) “Simple”. Which ones are your stand out tracks?
As a lifelong FGL fan (and even as a newbie!), you’ll definitely find something for you on this record. “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country” is going to be one of those talked about albums as it shows that Florida Georgia Line isn’t just a bro-country, country-pop duo. They’re resilient songwriters and artists that put thought into everything that they put to the public and that’s what makes them so successful. AND WE LOVE THEM FOR IT!
Hope you love the record as much as Amanda and I do! Happy listening!

Brian and Tyler made their debut on the Grammy Awards carpet tonight. They were up for “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” for “Meant to Be”, but ultimately lost to Dan + Shay’s “Tequila”. As they say, it’s an honor to be nominated and recognized and that couldn’t be more true. What a career highlight!
Come August 2019, the FGL family is expanding! Hayley and Tyler just announced at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party that they are pregnant with baby #2! Congrats to the happy family!
