FGL's Kelley signs with Warner

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 – Brian Kelley, one-half of Florida Georgia Line, has signed a deal with Warner Nashville.

The label will represent Kelley's solo music venture, Nashville South Records, Inc.

Billboard said that Kelley is expected to release solo music this spring and a full album later this year.

Kelley's partner in FGL, Tyler Hubbard, is also going to release solo material. FGL is not breaking up and may tour later this year. The duo released "Life Rolls On" in Feburary.

"I couldn't be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I'm humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I've been dreaming and scheming up to the next level," said Kelley. "This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what's next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y'all."

"We are honored that Brian Kelley chose WMN as home to his solo endeavors," said Warner Music Nashville EVP A&R Cris Lacy. "I've been an FGL believer from day one, and BK's clear vision for himself and his upcoming project is a testament to his heart, soul, and talent. His new music is the perfect antidote to 2020, and what an incredible way to start 2021."

Kelley is represented by Full Stop Management (Irving Azoff, Jeffrey Azoff) in partnership with WHY&HOW (Bruce Kalmick, Eddie Kloesel).

CD review - 6-Pack EP When Florida Georgia Line sing about how much they love their country with "I Love My Country," this lightning rod duo must certainly be aware that not everybody loves 'their' country.

CD review - Dig Your Roots From the ribbits and Dobro on "Smooth," the lead-off song, one might think that Florida Georgia Line is eschewing its rap rock meets country past for something completely different. While at times that is true - "Smooth" has a swampy beat - Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard haven't veered so far from what brought them to the dance. That is evident with the title track where the thwack of drum programming from long-time producer Joey Moi meets the soulful, somewhat shiny vocals. ...
CD review - Anything Goes The title of Florida Georgia Line's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/ Only one way to do it up right/Everybody goes where eveybody knows/That anything goes on a Friday Night/Get your party right/It's a Friday night. ...
