FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley recently interviewed People magazine at opening a new FGL exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. During the interview, they revealed that after their string of summer festival dates, they would take a break from performing together as a duo. Both musicians will probably concentrate on their musical ventures in the future. According to what Tyler shared with the publication, “I think ‘taking a break is a better euphemism than ‘breaking up.'”
According to Tyler, “We’re kind of using these last 12 shows as a time to celebrate FGL, celebrate the fans, celebrate each other and then support each other on the next part of our musical and creative journey, which will be on our own for a while.” [Tyler] “We’re using these last 12 shows as a time to celebrate FGL, celebrate the fans, celebrate each other, and then support each other on the next part
