Florida Georgia Line Bio

Jul 29, 2013

Florida Georgia Line made it big with their hit song “Cruise”. Find out more about the country duo in their Kidzworld bio.

Florida Meets Georgia

Florida Georgia Line is a country band comprised of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard. The two met while attending college in Nashville, Tennessee. They started writing songs together on the back of Tyler’s tailgate, and then drove around the state playing at small bars and venues. Their fan base grew slowly but surely until some head music producers started hearing about them in Nashville.

Find Fans

The band independently produced their first EP Anything Like Me in 2010. Brian and Tyler continued to tour the country, determined to share their music and make new fans. Then they partnered with Big Loud Mountain Records to put out their second EP, It'z Just What We Do, in May 2012. The album included the hit song “Cruise”, which skyrocketed them onto the Billboard charts and made them instantly famous. The song reached the number one spot on the Billboard Country chart by December 2012.  

Superstar Success

Brian and Tyler released their first full-length album in December 2012. Titled Here’s to the Good Times, the album featured 11 songs including “Get Your Shine On” and “Tip it Back”. After the album was released the band was invited on tour with country star Luke Bryan.

Did You Know?

  • Brian is from Florida and Tyler is from Georgia (that’s how the band got its name!)
  • The band is a huge fan of Garth Brooks
  • In the song “Cruise”, the guys mention the brand Chevy. As a thank you, a dealership in Georgia gave them both a new Chevy Silverado
  • Brian originally played basketball for Florida State, but transferred to Belmont University, where he met Tyler

My fave book(s) is/are the Dork Diary set. It's about a girl who transfers to a new school on a scholarship but she has lots of drama and excitement along the way. The girl is called Nikki Maxwell and her bet friends are Zoe and Chloe. Her crush is a boy named Brandon and her arch-nemesis is Mackenzie. It's a diary and there are 9 reading books, 1 about how to dork you diary up, 2 about where you write your own diary and 1 about how to be a DORK! [s:sm3/1jw1]
