Florida Georgia Line Confirm They’re “Taking A Break” After 10 Years

Ten years since the release of their breakout hit, ‘Cruise’, country music duo, Florida Georgia Line are planning a hiatus to work on solo projects.

Florida Georgia Line are planning on taking a hiatus once their I Love My Country Tour wraps up later this year.

Brian Kelley told People, “We’re not going our separate ways. We’re taking a break from recording our music. We’re being artists. We love creating. And so, a couple years back, we started writing without each other and trying different writers, and now we’re both doing that with our music.”

Over the past two years, it has at times seemed as though the duo’s time together could be coming to an end, as they briefly unfollowed each other on social media due to political differences during the 2020 presidential election, and a tour that had been cancelled in 2021 was not rescheduled.

Kelley also released his own solo album, Sunshine State of Mind, and has been working on bringing his country musical  May We All, and now extended movie version, to life. 

Hubbard collaborated on the chart topping single Undivided with Tim McGraw, as well as My Way with breakout TikTok star, Lathan Warlick.

Hubbard also noted that Florida Georgia Line has a dozen festival dates coming up in 2022 and, following that, Hubbard and Kelley will be pursuing solo endeavours for a bit.

He said, “We’re sort of using these last 12 shows as a time to celebrate Florida Georgia Line, celebrate the fans, celebrate each other, and then support each other on the next chapter of our musical and creative journey, which is gonna be individually for a while. So, we’re excited.”

During a recent interview, Hubbard also reflected on how the past couple of years and the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted perspectives.

“We’re in an interesting phase right now,” Hubbard said. “I think we get a new perspective on life right now. We kind of had our blinders on for 10 years of just more songs, more hits, more shows. And now obviously due to the pandemic, we’ve sort of gotten to step back and have a different perspective and enjoy family time and thinking about our future outside of music… What I plan on channelling, and I think BK [Kelley] is on the same page, is the next decade really diving even deeper into our passion for the craft of songwriting… I think we want to invest in younger artists, and we want to create a legacy that’s beyond just making records and touring.”

Kelley added, "When you live with somebody on the road and you go through everything, there's a connection. You don't lose that. You have history. We've built something that's way bigger than us — because of our fans, because of our team. And it'll always be."

Florida Georgia Line dropped their fifth studio album, Life Rolls On in February 2021. It debuted at no. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart, and featured the hit singles I Love My Country and Long Live. In total, the GRAMMY-nominated duo has racked up 17 number on singles, more than 13.2 billion global streams, and sold more than 40 million tracks and 4.7 million albums worldwide.
