Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have been performing as a duo for over 12 years now. But their time together has come to an end.
The duo, known as Florida Georgia Line, are both vocalists and songwriters. They have given many hits like This Is How We Roll, Dirt, Meant to be ft Bebe Rexha, etc.
Their Last Concert
Announcing the news of their departure, Hubbard said that “This is our last official concert as a Florida Georgia Line. Let’s see what we have left in the tank.”
During their performance of the 6-times platinum-certified H.O.L.Y., Hubbard started talking to the crowd and said “I want to express our gratitude, from BK and myself, from the bottom of our heart, man, for the last 12 years of our life that you guys have allowed us to do what we love.”
He also went on to thank the crowd and said that “You’ve enabled us to chase this crazy dream of writing songs and playing shows and hoping somebody will show up to listen, so thank you guys. Man, it really, really means the world to us.”
Spending so many years living your dreams and then parting ways can make anyone look back and feel nostalgic. Hubbard was in a similar state of mind, he addressed the fans at the concert “I’ve been thinking a lot this afternoon about the past 10 years and what this night means to us is the end of an incredible, incredible chapter for us.”
But just because their chapter together was ending does not mean that they were sad about it. Hubbard spoke on his and BK’s behalf when he said “It’s very exciting for us to look at what lies ahead and see what’s next, and the next chapter is very exciting, but we want to celebrate this chapter with you.”
What Is Next For The Guys?
Kelley, who is just 37 years old will do a residency in Florida where he will work on his solo music. It is believed that some lucky fans will get to hear his solo music before anyone else!
Hubbard, who is only 35 years old, will also be working on his solo career and will release an album next year. He is also set to tour the country with Keith Urban and Ingrid Andress on their tour.
Before ending the concert, Hubbard spoke to the audience once more and thanked them “What a special evening, thank you guys for celebrating with us. BK, I love you, man. Thanks again. It has been a special evening for us. We love you all.”
After the performance, they exited the stage from opposite directions.
Some of the fans saw the breakup coming. Earlier in 2020, Hubbard had unfollowed Kelley on Instagram, Kelley supported Trump while Hubbard favored Biden. In the beginning of this year, they announced that they were taking a break.
It is a cliché term for when things aren’t going right and a band wants to split up, and that is exactly what happened here. Although fans of the duo are upset by the split, they are excited to see what they have in store as solo artists.
