The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will host an exhibit that explores the music and career of Florida Georgia Line – the duo comprised of Tyler Hubbard from Georgia and Brian Kelley from Florida.
The exhibit, titled “Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong,” traces the duo’s friendship and collaboration, from their meeting in college to their swift emergence as a multiple-award-winning, genre-blending, fan favorite band.
“Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong” opens on January 21 and runs through January 1, 2023.
Objects featured in the exhibit include instruments, awards, stage and screen costumes and personal artifacts associated with the duo.
In support of the exhibition’s opening, Hubbard and Kelley will participate in a conversation and performance in the museum’s CMA Theater on February 6, 2022.
“Florida Georgia Line expanded the country music audience and created some of the most popular recordings in the genre’s history by embracing hip-hop and rock influences,” said museum CEO Kyle Young.
“I still remember being at the Country Q studio with BK [Brian Kelley] recording ‘Cruise,’ and having this feeling like we had created something special,” said Hubbard.
“When Tyler and I decided to go all-in and see where FGL would take us, we lived by two mottos,” added Kelley. “The first being, ‘Anywhere that would let us play our songs – didn’t matter if it was a bar, coffee shop, club or if the crowd was 10 people or 50 people – we would go just to be able to perform.’ And, the second, ‘Shake a million hands, to make a million fans.'”
