Florida Georgia Line members Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard talk about how they started and God’s role throughout their careers.
The two came together while they attended college at Belmont University in Nashville, where they both moved to song write.
“We just felt that way since the day (Brian Kelley) saw me at a songwriting round, and I saw him leading worship at our campus at Belmont,” said Hubbard.
“We both felt kind of called, so we just ran with it. I think we were fans of each other’s music abilities and writing abilities, and then I think we just both felt called from the Lord to do music together and pursue it. That was all it took for us was to say, ‘Yeah, let’s see what God’s got in store for us.'”
Florida Georgia Line’s Music is “Ordained by God”
The artist continues about the duo’s future and how God has taken care of them throughout their journey.
“Not to get too spiritual, but I think this journey has been anointed and kind of ordained by God. I think He’s just getting started. I think He has a few plans for both of us.”
The other member of the music duo, Brian Kelley, added, saying that their success was all due to God.
“I just think it was put in us: falling in love with music, and moving to Nashville, and Tyler and I meeting and us both taking a chance on each other,” Kelley says. “To see where that initial dream has taken us, there’s no doubt that God’s involved. It’s an unbelievable ride.”
“Long Live” the Tunes of Florida Georgia Line
In September, Florida Georgia Line released their new song, “Long Live”. The song talks about all the small town things they love, like backroads and long neck bottles. The music just radiates good vibes.
“We’re really trying to hone in on our craft of songwriting and always elevate and evolve and then it’s just a little strategy as far as, what do we want this particular package to be,” Hubbard says. ” Do we want it to be a mixture of different feels and vibes, or do we want it to have a specific message?'”
