Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Goes Solo With ‘5 Foot 9’: Look + Listen

Florida Georgia Line‘s lead singer Tyler Hubbard has addressed the joys of country living in a variety of ways with country-pop hits like “Cruise,” “This Is How We Roll,” and “’Round Here.” Yet, for his solo debut “5 Foot 9,” the songwriter gets in touch with his religious side by thanking his maker for the most precious things in his life.

Written by FGL front man and Cadillac Three leader Jaren Johnston and Chase McGill, “5 Foot 9” features finger-style acoustic guitar along with subdued banjo, brushed drums, and soft pedal steel sounds that accompany Hubbard’s ode to someone who “loves Tim McGraw and a small-town accent” as he sings “Jack makes good whiskey/But God makes the good stuff.”

For his debut his solo album, Hubbard signed with EMI Nashville and while there’s no formal release date as of yet, collaborators on the project include Nashville A-listers Ross Copperman, Rhett Akins, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, Keith Urban, and Thomas Rhett.

Though they still have a handful of festival dates as Florida Georgia Line scheduled through August, in February, Hubbard and Kelley announced that they were planning to take a professional break. In 2021 Kelley released his solo LP Sunshine State of Mind that focused on the singer’s Florida roots with tracks like “Beach Cowboy,” “Boat Names,” “Boat Ride,” and “By Boat.”
