FGL's Hubbard joins Urban tour

Tuesday, July 12, 2022 – Keith Urban's "The Speed of Now World Tour" will include Tyler Hubbard, lead singer of Florida Georgia Line, this fall.

Ingrid Andress also is on the bill for the segment of his tour opening Sept. 3 in Mountain View, Cal. and winding down Nov. 4 in Peoria, Ill.

Urban started the tour late last month after nearly four years, continues through the summer with Andress, before taking on Hubbard for more than two-dozen shows to run through November.

"I'm psyched that my brutha Tyler Hubbard is gonna come out and join Ingrid (Andress) and me on the fall leg of my "The Speed of Now World Tour," said Urban. "It's like some Ocean's 11 sh#t, and it's gonna be a BLAST!!!!!"

FGL is on hiatus with Hubbard slated to perform songs from an upcoming new album. The project's first single, "5 Foot 9," is out with "Way Home," out July 15.

"I've been writing and recording a lot of new music for my first solo album, songs that are made to be played live," said Hubbard. "I am so excited to be joining Keith (Urban) on his fall tour and can't wait to play them for the first time for fans across the country."

CD review - THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1 It's getting tougher and tougher all the time to justify categorizing Keith Urban's music as country. "The Speed of Now, Pt. 1" doesn't help. (What, is there a pt. 2 of this largely lame music on the way? Say it ain't so!) It's a relatively good pop album, for a Nashville pop effort, but there's just too much real country (Jon Pardi, Luke Combs) getting played on mainstream radio these days.

CD review - Graffiti U It's telling how two songs on Keith Urban's "Graffiti U" album chug along to a reggae beat because pop rhythms and non-country elements are the obvious inspirations for this collection.
