Tyler Hubbard Says Solo Album Felt ‘Necessary At This Point’
After more than a decade as part of a successful duo, Tyler Hubbard said that making his first solo album was an adjustment. He was used to having his Florida Georgia Line partner Brian Kelley with him every step of the process, but as Tyler tells us EXCLUSIVELY, it felt like the right time to go it alone. “You know, the whole process of making an album had one less dynamic. You know, it was me collaborating with my producer, Jordan (Schmidt) and the musicians, you know, but not having that partner was definitely different. It took a little getting used to but it feels appropriate and almost necessary at this point. We worked together for so long and had so much success and had so much fun and really told our story that now it feels an appropriate time to tell our individual stories.”
Tyler released his self-titled debut album last month.
Brian released his debut solo project, Sunshine State of Mind, in 2021.
Tyler’s debut single, “5 Foot 9,” topped the country charts, while his second single, “Dancin’ In The Country,” sits inside the Top 25 and climbing.
