Welp, all of you that were hoping for a Florida Georgia Line breakup can stop holding your breath. It’s not happening…

If you missed it, Florida Georgia Line members Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley got into a bit of a fight during the week of the election, and ultimately, the the Hubbard family wound up unfollowing the Kelleys on Instagram, leading to a lot of fan speculation that something big might be happening with the future of the duo. Long story short: The Hubbard’s supported Joe Biden, the Kelleys supported Donald Trump, and the Hubbards didn’t seem to like what the Kelleys were posting on Instagram. Brian was calling for artists to get back to touring if large crowds were going to gather to celebrate the Biden/Harris win, and then a few days later, Tyler Hubbard tested positive for COVID.

It’s not hard to see why they were fighting…

Whiskey Riff broke the story and then then Tyler Hubbard refollowed them shortly thereafter, but by that time, the damage was done. Fans were wondering what the hell was going on, Twitter was exploding, both is joy and sadness at the though of their demise, every other country music publication picked the story up, and then their appearance at the CMA Awards got canceled because Tyler got COVID.

However, the duo recently sat down with Storme Warren to clear the air.

Tyler Hubbard said:

“I unfollowed BK for a few days while we were through this political, you know, in the middle of this election and everything going on. And, and I even called him and told him, I said, ‘Hey buddy, I love you. And I love you a lot more in real life than on your stories right now. So I’m just going to, so that’s why I’m unfollowing you. Nothing personal. I still love you. You’re still my brother.’ I just didn’t want to see it every time I opened Instagram. And so it wasn’t a big deal. Like, like we, like we said, we’re, we’re on great terms. We’re feeling stronger than ever. We’re loving and supporting each other through even all the chapters that we’re in now and, uh, excited for the future.”

Brian Kelley added:

“Yeah. Yeah. We were literally on a call yesterday, just showing up the last details of our record and working on getting some touring cities out here soon and a couple of announcements, but, um, no, just in that came through in the middle of our team call and we’re just like, well, that’s interesting we are on a phone call together right now talking about the future. So pretty interesting.”

Petty? Absolutely. And nothing personal? I mean, it kind of is…

But the likelihood of an actual breakup over this was always slim to none. Their fans can breathe easy knowing that another tan legs, pickup truck song is coming their way soon… or you know, another Tyler Hubbard rap song with Justin Bieber

And for those of us that like actual country music, welp, I suppose that one Florida Georgia Line is better than two. The last thing we need is both of them releasing solo songs at the same time…
