Well, country music fans, 2021 is trying to give 2020 a run for its money already. Nashville as well as most of the Midwest has seen severe weather this week and it does not appear to be letting up. So, out of caution and for the safety of everyone involved Florida Georgia Line elected to postpone their global livestream album release event that was scheduled for this week. The country duo released the following statement.
“Due to inclement weather in Nashville, we are moving our Amazon Music Global Livestream to Thursday, February 25. The party starts at 7PM CT via the Amazon Music Twitch channel and within the Amazon Music mobile app. Keep on listening to Life Rolls On and we look forward to performing for y’all next week!”
Where is the livestream?
The location for the livestream has not changed. The band still plans to host the event at their downtown Nashville bar. The namesake bar FGL House is one of the reasons that Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are donating all the proceeds from the livestream to the Nashville Neighbors Fund.
Kelley and Hubbard opened FGL House in June of 2017, and they have been a staple on Broadway street ever since. On Christmas Day 2020 a car bomb was set off on 2nd Avenue in downtown Nashville. The bombing devastated several businesses and homes along several blocks surrounding the bomb site. The Nashville Neighbors Fund was established through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to support those affected.
Florida Georgia Line has already donated separately but they wanted to do more to help their fellow business owners. “We can’t think of a better reason to team up with our CMT family and hit the stage at FGL House in support of our fellow downtown Nashville merchants affected by the bombing.”

Florida Georgia Line are not the only ones
Nashville is home to country music and several country music artists have invested in Nashville by building businesses. The city has given these artists so much and they chose here to create something new.
Most country singers have built restaurants and bars downtown focusing on good food and great country music. Some of these artists include Blake Shelton’s Ole Red, which has multiple locations in Tennessee, Oklahoma and even Florida. The Tishomingo, Oklahoma location was the site where Blake shot the music video for his single “Minimum Wage.”
Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kid Rock and John Rich of Big and Rich and of course Alan Jackson all have locations on lower Broadway. Many of these restaurants are mere blocks away from the site of the bombing on 2nd Avenue.
Florida Georgia Line will be playing with a full band performing songs from their recently released album Life Rolls On. The livestream will also include interviews with Hubbard and Kelley prior to their performance, so be sure to tune in.
