Country singer Tyler Hubbard's growth expands beyond Florida Georgia Line

Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tyler Hubbard wasn't sure what his options were when his duo partner in Florida Georgia Line, Brian Kelley, said he wanted to go solo. He thought he might hang up his performing hat, just stick to songwriting. But after more than a decade on the road selling out arenas, Hubbard missed the fans, and he missed creating albums. Hubbard is now a year into his solo career with two hits under his belt and a debut solo record. Hubbard took the opportunity to create music more personal to himself, but at the same time, creating a sonic link to the music that FGL fans know him for. “I hope they can evolve with me, because I feel like it was a season,” Hubbard said.
