Fans of Country duo, Florida Georgia Line have been on the edges of their seats for some time now. This is because towards the end of 2020 rumors ran rampant that the duo was splitting up. The duo unfollowed each other on Instagram, thus adding fuel to the fire.
Florida Georgia Line Finds Strength in Separation.
However, for the New Year, Florida Georgia Line shares an update video with their fans. One of the shocking announcements Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley shares with fans is that they both intend to make new solo music in 2021. Consequently, Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw already have a wildly successful single under their belts in “Undivided.”
Taste of Country reports on more details about Florida Georgia Line’s upcoming plans. This update comes from Tyler Hubbard. According to Hubbard, “Florida Georgia Line’s creative resolve only strengthens when the duo works separately on outside projects.”
However, it seems that Florida Georgia Line’s fifth studio album, Life Rolls On, is keeping the pair busy. Lucking for fans, Life Rolls On releases Friday, February 12th. On Tim McGraw’s Beyond the Influence, Tyler Hubbard reassures fans that he just saw Brian Kelley. The duo was doing a photoshoot and press for the new record.
Further strengthening the idea that “distance makes the heart grow fonder,” Tyler Hubbard explains how working on solo projects has strengthened his bond with Brian Kelley.
There’s just a freedom that feels exhilarating, man, on both sides. And something about that really channels creativity. And so, now we’re getting to experience a really cool wave of creativity on our own and grow that and nurture that and be supportive of each other.”
Heartwarming, Hubbard goes on to explain that he “feels like it’s only going to make us stronger.” Consequently, working independently of each other allows them to “think outside of of the box.” Most reassuring to fans is how Hubbard feels about working with Kelley, “We were always a package deal,” he says.
Tim McGraw Relates to FGL’s Creative Processes.
For further assurance, Tim McGraw relates this to working with his wife and fellow Country icon, Faith Hill. McGraw explains that “all creatives do that.” He explains while he enjoys working with Hill, it’s nice to be able to work on his own.
Additionally, McGraw gives the example of how Joe Walsh has “maintained a solo career and a career with the Eagles for all of these years.” McGraw goes on to recount how Walsh “told [him] that he feels fulfilled as a musician being able to do this, and not only that, and the two avenues complement each other.
