Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Bryan Kelley got serious for their new album, “Life Rolls On.”
The duo headed all the way to Sanctuary Studios in Albany, the Bahamas to work on some new music for the album. And now they’re sharing footage of the trip on their Twitter account.

“Diving headfirst into this album and redefining our creative process with our boy Corey Crowder was next level,” the band tweeted Friday. “We’re so grateful for all the love this year and stoked for y’all to hear what else is in store for 2021.”
The album caps a difficult year for Florida Georgia Line. Rumors circulated saying the band was breaking up earlier this autumn.
And then Hubbard was diagnosed with COVID-19, putting an end to their plans to perform at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. Country singer Lee Brice also tested positive and had to pull out.
“Although this is incredibly disappointing, not only for the show but also for CMA personally as we care deeply for these artists and only want the best for them and their families, it does reassure us that our protocols are working,” the CMA said in a statement at the time. “Our process enabled us to manage each situation immediately and before either artist ever entered our set. Most importantly, it prevented anyone else from being exposed.”
An Upbeat End to a Tough Year
But now the album’s release can bring some form of catharsis for the duo.
“I think this personally is just a big, celebratory chapter,” Hubbard said in a statement. “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.”
They both shot down any rumors of a breakup. And according to Rolling Stone, they’re mulling a return to live shows as soon as next summer.
“It’s just evident within the music how good of a time we’re having,” Kelley said. “And how good of a place in life we are for sure.”
