Kelley rides Second Wave of Summer

Thursday, August 4, 2022 – Brian Kelley is riding a Second Wave of Summer with a 20-date residency in Florida.

Kelley, who is one-half of Florida Georgia Line, will welcome fans into the backyard of the Tribe Kelley Surf Post, which is owned by Kelley and his wife Brittney, starting Sept. 2 in Grayton Beach, Fla. Closing out in costume with a Halloween bash on Oct. 31, all tickets are on sale now.

"I couldn't be more excited about doing a 20-show residency in the backyard of our mom-and-pop surf shop, Tribe Kelley Surf Post, in Grayton Beach, Fla," Kelley said. "We've been dreaming of this for years, and finally the timing is perfect.

"After five intimate sold-out shows, it was easy to see that this was the wave I wanted to ride this fall. This allows me to write and record new music during the week, play shows on the weekend, sleep in my own bed and soak up as much fun and inspiration as I can. I feel really free and in my own element, and this allows me time to focus and set up for an even bigger 2023. I can't wait to see everyone at the next round of the Surf Post Sessions. You never know what I'm going to play or who's going to show up and join me."

Dates are: Sept. 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18

Oct. 7, 8, 9, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30, 31

Florida Georgia Line is doing four shows this month - three in Canada and one in St. Paul, Minn. The duo (Tyler Hubbard is the other member) is going on hiatus as both pursue solo outings.

CD review - Sunshine State Of Mind Brian Kelley may be one half of Florida Georgia Line (by some accounts, disease-spreading vectors of bro country), but "Sunshine State of Mind" is not a FGL album – not by a long shot. Like his high-profile duo gig, Kelley's solo venture is not at all lyrically deep. This is a party album. But as party albums go, it's a good one. This is also a thematically consistent album. Most of its songs include sailing, sun, the beach or all three. It's a summer ...
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. ...
