Brian Kelley: BK’s Wave Pack – EP Review

Brian Kelley, who serves as one half of the GRAMMY-nominated duo, Florida Georgia Line, makes his solo debut with brand new EP, BK’s Wave Pack available everywhere today, April 13th. Listen to the 4-track collection and take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.

Kelley and bandmate Tyler Hubbard shocked the country world when they announced the two of them will be focusing more on their solo careers going forward after the release of their latest album, Life Rolls On. Although we are unsure when or if there will be new Florida Georgia Line music in the future, we know that Kelley’s solo career with Warner Music Nashville is just beginning to take off.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level,” Kelley shared in a recent press release. “This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure.”

Fans can sense the entire vibe of this album just by reading the names of the songs. During the pandemic, Kelley spent a lot of time writing and being inspired at the beach. The lead track is a mid-tempo, pop-country crossover that immediately sets the mood. Kelley puts the listener in a tropical paradise, declaring himself the “Beach Cowboy” that “goes John Wayne on these waves.” The following song, “Made By The Water,” is reminiscent of classic Kenny Chesney/Jake Owen, as he portrays a perfect day at the beach.

“Soul of a sailor, born for a boat // My tie-dye girl got their heart floating // The way that it’s going I know when the sun sinks down like a bobber // there’s going to be some love made by the water”

Kelley turns the relaxation up with the next track, “Party on the Beach.” With the sounds from a traditional Hawaiian luau and a screeching seagull, he puts listeners’ minds into vacation mode. In the final track, “Sunday Service In The Sand,” the singer-songwriter shows gratitude for island life by thanking God for his beach-chair blessings. He admits that heaven could not get much closer than this.

“I can feel the salt-water working // High-tide’s taking me to church and // I can’t help but raise my hands to another Sunday service in the sand”

Although the two shared writing and producing credits, Hubbard was the predominant voice on most FGL songs, especially on their last two albums. It was nice to see Kelley venture out and sing along with his voice for a change. We are hopeful to see a full project album from Kelley in the future.

1. “Beach Cowboy” (Brian Kelley, Blake Redferrin, Jake Rose) *
2. “Made By The Water” (Brian Kelley, Corey Crowder, Randy Montana)

Florida Georgia Line Lands 18th Career #1 Song with “Long Live”

Florida Georgia Line lands the number one song in country radio this week with, “Long Live”. Marking the duo’s 18th career chart-topper, just after earning their 17th hit back in September with “I Love My Country”.

Platinum-selling country duo Florida Georgia Line have been a staple in the country music world for several years now. With hits like “Cruise,” “Meant to Be,” and “Dirt” under their belt, the hitmakers cannot seem to slow down. Despite the fact that the two men are embarking on their own solo projects, their most recent radio single, “Long Live” just went number one on the charts, marking their 18th chart-topper.

Written by FGL boys Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley with Corey Crowder, David Garcia, and Josh Miller, “Long Live” is a quintessential FGL song. Their smooth vibratos, catchy lyrics, and enticing voices are exactly what we have come to love from the duo. It is clear that fans agree that their music is what we need right now.

“Having our fans and Country radio support us all of these years has been nothing short of a blessing,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley in a recent press release. “We couldn’t imagine a better song to mark our 18th! Here’s to all of the good times and to many more ‘Long Live’ nights!”

If you cannot get enough of Florida Georgia Line, make sure to stream their newest album Life Rolls On, and be on the lookout for Hubbard and Kelley’s solo projects. The latter will be out on Friday, April 14th.

Florida Georgia Line: ‘Life Rolls On’ – Album Review

Trailblazing country duo, Florida Georgia Line released their fifth album, Life Rolls On today, February 12th. The record contains 16 tracks, six of which were a part of the 6-Pack EP, as well as the number-one hit, “I Love My Country” and their most recent top-15 single “Long Live.”

On January 1st, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley shocked the country world when they announced the two of them will be focusing more on their solo careers going forward after the release of Life Rolls On. Although they confirmed it was not “a breakup,” fans are speculating when or if there will be new Florida Georgia Line music in the future, which makes this record that much more special.

“We’ve been on a 10-year journey together and we wouldn’t change it for the world,” Hubbard said in the announcement video. “We’re going to continue to make music as much we can—as a matter of fact, we’re probably going to be making even more music now. We created this freedom around ourselves where we can do whatever we want to do, creatively and musically…It’s a beautiful place to venture out and have a voice of our own and have individuality.”

Fittingly so, this album’s main theme is nostalgia. Florida Georgia Line incorporates many songs that reflect on love and southern life, specifically the first two, “Long Live” and “Life Looks Good.” The latter is a feel-good, sing-along tune. Kelley backs Hubbard as he sings about laying on a blanket and looking at the stars with his better half. “Good To Me” is another track in which the two show their gratitude. Written by Hubbard, Kelley, Canaan Smith, and producer Corey Crowder, they admit they have made their fair share of mistakes, but God has always had their backs. Faith has been the focus of many Florida Georgia Line cuts recently, including “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.” with Chase Rice and their collaboration project with Christian singer, Chris Tomlin.

Hubbard and Kelley make the love they have for their wives very apparent on this record, both emotionally and physically. The vulnerable “Second Guessing” from NBC’s Songland was featured on this album — the singer acknowledges his indecisiveness until he meets the woman who makes it all clear. In “Always Gonna Love You,” they compare the love they get from their wives to a cold beer after work and your team scoring a touchdown, assuring it will always be this way and their love is forever. “Hard To Get To Heaven,” “Eyes Closed,” and “Long Time Coming” are more steamy. All three songs describe the physical side of love, the latter being the most personal. In “Long Time Coming,” the singer explains that between the kids and his busy work schedule, they have not made enough time for themselves, and he can’t wait to share a glass of wine and get into bed with the love of his life.

The duo has always experimented with hip-hop beats, and this record is no different. In “Countryside,” “Ain’t Worried Bout It,” and “New Truck,” Hubbard and Kelley blend banjos and steel guitars with clap-tracks to create sounds that fans of all genres can enjoy.

The generally lighthearted record takes a turn with the final two songs, “U.S. Stronger” and “Life Rolls On.” The former was included on the 6-Pack EP and was inspired by COVID-19. Written by just Hubbard and Kelley, the two encourage listeners to help each other out during these trying times. The only way to beat this virus is to figuratively come together; perseverance is in the blood of all Americans. The latter reminds us that in good times or bad, God has a plan for us, and we are always right where we belong.

The decision to pursue solo projects as well as Florida Georiga Line may be an underlying message throughout this album. Several songs, such as “Always Gonna Love You” and the title track, can relate to their relationship. While we look forward to new music from Hubbard and Kelley individually, we are celebrating all the great projects they have created and the revolutionary impact they have had in country life and country music.

Florida Georgia Line Releases Title Track to Album “Life Rolls On”

Florida Georgia Line’s new song, “Life Rolls On” is available now, January 15th, on all streaming platforms. Following several songs pre-released off the upcoming album, this title-track has us anxiously waiting for the remaining tracks to complete this already outstanding album, due out February 12th.

“Life Rolls On” gives off major back-porch and campfire vibes. This soothing and peaceful song will still get your feet stomping and your hands-clapping. While other songs lately have reminded us of what we’re still going through, this one’s encouraging us to look ahead to the bright side. 

“This world will keep turning / The bonfires will keep burning / And I don’t know what God’s thinking of but where we are is where we belong / Oh and I know / It might be all right / It might be all wrong / But life rolls on / And on and on and on”

Without overlooking that the dark times are still with us, this song reminds us that when you survive tough times, you end up stronger on the other side. 

“As long as my hearts beating / And these old lungs keep breathing / The highs and the lows / The yes and the no’s / Only gonna make us strong”

“Life Goes On” is the perfect title-track to lead an album coming out of this pandemic. The positivity that emerges from this song despite the circumstances that caused it will undoubtedly find its way into the remaining tracks of the album.

The duo has been incredibly busy while leading up to their 16-track album release next month. They just released another single, “New Truck”, on the album last week. This was in addition to seven other songs already released including the current Top 15 Single “Long Live”  and 6 tracks that were originally released on the 6-pack EP which included “Second Guessing” from Songland and  “I Love My Country”, FGL’s 17th number one song.

They’ve also been featured on multiple songs with friends including “Drinkin’ Beer Talkin’ God Amen” with Chase Rice, “It’s About Time”  with Russell Dickerson, “Lil’ Bit”  with Nelly. They were heavily involved in the making of the collaboration album Chris Tomlin and Friends, singing songs “Forever Home”, “Thank You Lord” with Thomas Rhett, and “Sing” with Russell Dickerson. Hubbard even released his first solo track, a collaboration with Tim McGraw titled “Undivided”  just this week. The duo has also been hosting a radio show “FGL House Party Radio” on Apple Music Radio every other week, seven episodes so far. 

Despite the recent announcement that the duo will be releasing solo-music this year, it is clear there is no slowing down on their work together with FGL and Tree Vibez Music, a publishing company founded by the duo, where they work with fellow singer-songwriters Jordan Schmidt, Corey Crowder, RaeLynn, Canaan Smith, and Chris Loocke and more, acting as a large source of their many collabs with other writers.

Florida Georgia Line Release “New Truck” Ahead of Forthcoming Album

Florida Georgia Line’s new song, “New Truck” is available now, January 8th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

Off their upcoming fifth studio album Life Rolls On, Florida Georgia Line’s latest release, “New Truck,” is co-written by Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, along with Corey Crowder, Jeff Gitelman, Raysean Hairston, Blake Redferrin, and Priscilla Renea. This track could fall into the ‘trap country’ genre as Hubbard and Kelley rap the verses over a thumping bass beat. The playful tune is a catchy song that is fun to sing along to and will certainly become a fan-favorite when live shows return. It also comes along with a comical, retro-themed video. Check it out above.

“With “New Truck” we were like, ‘Man, this feels good. I just want to ride around in my truck, listen to this, and have a song to jam to,’” Hubbard shared in a recent press release. “When any of our buddies get a new truck now, we can send it to them and say, ‘Yo, bump this in the truck!’”

Florida Georgia Line's New Song "New Truck" is available now

Florida Georgia Line’s New Song “New Truck” is available now

I got a new truck (Yup), I got a new ride (Woah) / I got it souped-up (Yup), I like it too high (Skrrt) / I got a new truck (Yup), I got a new ride (Woah) / Shawty wanna ride shotty when I roll by (Yup)

The release of this energetic song is not the only reason Florida Georgia Line made headlines in early 2021. In a post to their fans, The six-time ACM award-winning duo announced that they will be focusing on music outside of Florida Georgia Line after the release of Life Rolls On, but ensured they are not “breaking up.” Rumors began swirling when Hubbard and Kelley unfollowed each other on Instagram in the midst of the presidential election.

Hubbard later confirmed those reports were false and the only reason for the temporary unfollowing was to due political differences. The two acknowledged the rumors and refuted them in their announcement video. Kelley admitted he always had aspirations of putting out a solo album, and Hubbard revealed he will be collaborating with other artists in the near future, including Tim McGraw on a new song titled “Undivided” out this Wednesday, January 13th.

“We’ve been on a 10-year journey together and we wouldn’t change it for the world,” Hubbard said in the video. “We’re going to continue to make music as much we can—as a matter of fact, we’re probably going to be making even more music now. We created this freedom around ourselves where we can do whatever we want to do, creatively and musically….It’s a beautiful place to venture out and have a voice of our own and have an individuality.”

Fans have nothing to worry about as Hubbard and Kelley left the door very open for future Florida Georgia Line projects. They also promised they will continue to tour together and play all the hits that made them not only the most popular duo in the 2010s, but one of the most colorful acts in country music as a whole.

Life Rolls On drops on February 12th, and will feature the six songs on The 6-Pack EP and their current top-20 single, “Long Live.” Hubbard and Kelley helped produce all sixteen songs with Corey Crowder and co-wrote thirteen of them. See the track listing below:

“It’s about time for a drink, it’s about time for a cold one / It’s about time for a throwback, play me a country gold one, I’ve been waiting on a night like this, it’s about time for a drink”

The brand new dad has steadily been releasing songs from his upcoming album, Southern Symphony, slated for release on December 4th including “Home Sweet”, “Never Get Old” and the current 2-week number one song on country radio, “Love You Like I Used To”.

Tyler Hubbard’s Shares New Song “Thank God For Little Girls” in Heart Warming Video

After reuniting with his family after almost two weeks, Tyler Hubbard shares a song with his daughter that he wrote for her in quarantine called “Thank God for Little Girls”. The lyrics are beautiful, but it’s the video of him playing the song to her for the first time that will make your heart smile.

 

For those who may not know, Tyler Hubbard, of Florida Georgia Line, tested positive for Covid-19 a couple of weeks ago. Luckily, he was mostly asymptomatic and was able to quarantine close to home..on his tour bus in his driveway. While he wasn’t physically with his family, he would see his wife and kids through the windows of the tour bus, from afar in the driveway, and on FaceTime.

Over the 13-day quarantine, Hubbard kept fans in the loop of what his day-to-day consisted of through his Instagram stories, and there was a whole lot of songwriting. In addition to the many FaceTime calls and videos that he and his wife Hayley shared on social media, Hubbard also gave a good amount of teasers for the many songs he was writing on the tour bus from song clips to lyrics. It was clear how much he missed his wife and kids (daughter, Liv and sons, Luca and Atlas) and it seems those feelings inspired some new music.

Today, Hubbard gave fans the biggest teaser yet with a song called “Thank God for Little Girls”, which he wrote with Lori McKenna and Dave Barnes. He wrote the song for his daughter, Liv, and shared a video that his wife took of him playing the song for her for the first time. 

You hear Hubbard say “it’s about you” at the beginning of the video. When Liv hears the chorus, she says “my daddy” and touches his face adorably. After hearing the whole song, Liv tells him “I like that song for me, I want to keep it so much…forever and ever.” Not sure what’s more precious, the song, or this video.

In the caption of the post, Hubbard shared “This is one of my favorite moments with her so far. Thanks for capturing it @hayley_hubbard … I’m not crying … You’re crying”.

We hope to hear the full song soon, along with many more from Hubbard’s bus quarantine! 

 

Below are the (partial) lyrics from what was played on the video:

Yeah I used to live for Friday Nights

Pick-up trucks and beer

Hangin out with all my rowdy friends

Was something I held dear

 

I thought those were the glory days

But now I can’t believe

How my view on life is changing

How much sweeter it can be

 

I thank God for country music

I thank God for this guitar

I thank God for every friend I got 

And fireflies in the dark

 

But there’s nothing like the angel 

That came into my world

And says “I love you daddy”

Thank God for little girls

 

Yeah now-a-days I hurry home 

And run right up the stairs

Just in time to watch her fold her hands 

And say them bedtime prayers

 

She thanks the lord for Mom and Dad

and Grandma back at home

Yeah she’s got her whole list memorized

And I memorize my own

 

I thank God for country music

I thank God for this guitar

I thank God that I found Jesus

He was right there in my heart

So thank you for the angel 

That came and rocked my world

Taught me how to love the father

Thank God for little girls

Florida Georgia Line Lit This Year

The perfect feel-good Christmas tune is here to get us ready for the Holiday season. Or the ‘holidaze’ if you ask the boys from FGL. Written and produced by Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly themselves, along with Corey Crowder, Florida Georgia Line’s first-ever seasonal tune, “Lit This Year”, is available now on all streaming platforms.

The boys of Florida Georgia Line are excited about their new Christmas song. Hubbard shares that “BK, Corey, and I had a good time writing this one”. Kelly adds “This is a new one for us. T and I always felt our first holiday song would come at just the right time – we’re excited for fans to have something FGL to cheers for the season with!”

What starts out seeming like a good ole traditional Christmas, with Mama in the kitchen, Daddy cutting down the tree, everyone decorating it, and the whole family back in town, quickly brings us to what an average modern Christmas may look like for families coming together these days…especially after a loooonnggg 2020…with a ‘fridge full of cheers’ and some ‘homegrown mistletoe’, assuring us that ‘that Christmas tree ain’t the only thing getting lit this year’.

If you haven’t tried Old Camp Whiskey yet and want a taste of what they’re talking about, make sure to pour some ‘Old Camp in the eggnog’ to get into the holiday spirit!

Hubbard and Kelly continue to add these up-beat and feel-good songs into the country music world and this is another song to add to the mix! It follows their latest hit, ‘Long Live’ which they will be performing at the upcoming 54th Annual CMA Awards on November 11th, where they are nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year. They also received a nomination for Favorite Duo or Group – Country at the American Music Awards, which is fan-voted. Voting is open through November 16th and the show airs on November 22nd.

Florida Georgia Line and Nelly Reunite for New Song “Lil Bit”

Florida Georgia Line and Nelly teamed up for a brand new song, “Lil Bit” available now, October 23rd, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

“Cruise” was arguably the song that defined the “bro-country” era in the 2010s. When rapper and singer-songwriter Nelly joined Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley on the remix, it gained popularity and helped skyrocket the song to the top of the charts, holding the number one spot for 24 straight weeks. Now in 2020, Nelly reunites with the CMA-nominated Duo of the Year on the brand new track, “Lil Bit”.

Unlike “Cruise,” this song leans more heavily into rap than country. Nelly raps the verses and pre-chorus and Hubbard and Kelley come in for the chorus. A banjo joins the hip-hop beat to give it a country element and create an interesting and unique sound. Hubbard and Nelly wrote this track with Jordan Schmidt and Blake Redferrin.

Take me to the country , show me where your from / I said Shawty you gon’ love me and we gon’ have some fun / I’ll break out my big wheel and you can climb on up / Girl, I think you a big deal, now show your boy some love / Huh, just a lil’ bit

It is unlikely this will get a lot of country radio airtime, but it could be a fun song for Florida Georgia Line to mix into their live sets when concerts finally do return. For Nelly, “Lil Bit” is his third country feature of 2020, along with “Good Times Roll” with Jimmie Allen and “Cool Again” with Kane Brown. He has also collaborated with Tim McGraw in the past and recorded his own version of Thomas Rhett’s “Die a Happy Man.”
