FGL cancels tour due to COVID

Friday, August 20, 2021 – Florida Georgia Line canceled its I Love My Country Tour 2021 today due to COVID-19.

This is the second major cancellation this week. Garth Brooks announced he was postponing five stadium shows due to COVID. Festivals and venues are starting to require proof of vaccination and/or a recent negative test to be able to enter.

"There is nothing better than seeing all of your faces from the stage, feeling your good energy, and making memories together," said FGL's Tyler Hubbard. "We were hopeful we could get back on the road this fall and are so bummed to have to cancel this tour, but we know in our hearts that we still have to make sure we're keeping our fans and crew safe. It's unfortunate that we have to cancel, but we hope y'all understand. We love our fans and can't wait to be back out when the time is right."

"Although we've been able to see some of y'all at shows recently, everyone's continued safety has been weighing heavy on us," said FGL's Brian Kelley. "To our fans, band, crew and all of the venues around the country, thank you for your love and support. We couldn't do what we do without you, and we hope we can all do our part to bring live music back soon."

The 29-stop trek featuring Russell Dickerson as direct support, plus openers Lauren Alaina and Redferrin, was due to launch at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta on Sept. 24, and run through Nov. 20 at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle.

For all current ticket holders, refunds will be issued to the original method of payment used at time of purchase. No action is required to obtain a refund.

Kelley just released a solo album, "Sunshine State of Mind," a beach-themed CD that was a departure from the FGL sound.

CD reviews for Florida Georgia Line

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. 'Their' country doesn't always match the country music of George Strait, after all, who is name-dropped in said song. Strait is just too stylistically straight, for instance, to ever work in the sort of hip-hop cadence that drives "Ain't Worried About It. ...
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. ...
