Country duo Florida Georgia Line are gearing up to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” tomorrow evening, and their fans are excited for the gig.

Florida Georgia Line Go on Jimmy Kimmel to Promote New Record

“We’ll be performing on @JimmyKimmelLive TOMORROW NIGHT!” the pair tweeted Monday. “Don’t miss it #LifeRollsOn.”

Their audience was quick to jump into the replies.

“Alright now!” tweeted one fan.

“I have to see this happen,” replied another. “I literally love u guys I listen to your music a lot.”

Life Rolls On is the title of Florida Georgia Line’s fifth studio album. Released on Feb. 12, it dropped amid rumors of a breakup and after a brief bout with COVID-19. 

And Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have been busy promoting it, tweeting up a storm, taking over Pandora’s Listening Room as guest DJs and performing a live stream concert, among other things.  

“I think this personally is just a big, celebratory chapter,” Hubbard said in a statement announcing the album’s release, per Rolling Stone. “We’ve come a long way since 2012 when we dropped our first album, it’s wild to think about the journey we’ve been on – the things we’ve got to do, the places music has taken us. We’re celebrating life and the good times, the ups and the downs, and the journey it took us to get where we’re at.”

“It’s just evident within the music how good of a time we’re having,” Kelley added, “and how good of a place in life we are for sure.”

Breakup Rumors Are False

Last year, as the election approached, breakup rumors began to swirl around Florida Georgia Line. Fans noticed that Hubbard had unfollowed Kelley on social media, fueling speculation that the duo were about to part ways.

But Hubbard went on SiriusXM to shoot down the rumors. He explained that he had unfollowed Kelley over political disagreements, and the band was still very much together.

“We have been on a 10-year relationship, a 10-year partnership, a 10-year commitment to each other. And yes, there have been hard times,” he said, per Us Weekly. “It’s not all sugar-coated.” 

“And so the truth is, and I think this is important to talk about, me and BK have done work,” he added. “We’ve went to therapy, we’ve sat with each other and wanting to kill each other at times. But by the end of it, we were hugging it out. You know what I mean? Because we’re brothers and that’s what brothers do. And brothers don’t always get along.”

As 2021 dawned, both musicians were also pursuing solo projects, while keeping Florida Georgia Line together. 

“It feels like it’s only going to make us stronger and able to grow outside of our typical boundary that we’ve set, our FGL box that we’ve built for ourselves over the last decade,” Hubbard told Tim McGraw on the latter’s “Beyond the Influence Radio” show on Apple Music Country.
