Earlier this year, Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line told The Bobby Bones Show the duo is taking break after performing together for 12 years. Hubbard and his bandmate, Brian Kelley, had been talking about taking a break for some time prior, as they wish to pursue their solo careers.
This may not be the true “end” for Florida Georgia Line. Hubbard and Kelley have always referred to this parting of ways as a break, rather than a breakup.
But since no one knows what the future has in store, there’s a chance that Florida Georgia Line just performed their final show as a duo on Wednesday night (August 31).
Hubbard addressed the crowd that gathered to watch them at the Minnesota State Fair, saying:
“You’ve enabled us to chase this crazy dream of writing songs and playing shows and hoping someone will show up to listen, so thank you guys. It’s the closing of an incredible, incredible chapter for us. It’s very exciting for us to look at what’s ahead, see what’s next. And the next chapter ahead is very exciting, but we want to celebrate this chapter with you guys.”
The duo treated fans to performances of some of their biggest hits, including “May We All,” “This Is How We Roll,” and “Meant to Be.” They ended the show by singing “Cruise,” which was their debut single and has since been certified 11x Platinum.
It seemed fitting for the duo to end their run together by singing the song that started it all for them. Watch their final performance of “Cruise” below.
We wish Hubbard and Kelley the best as they branch off to make music on their own.
