Florida Georgia Line Says They’re “Taking A Break,” Not “Breaking Up”

Florida Georgia Line has a brand new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Why? I have no idea…

I mean, what’s even in there? A can of Axe Body Spray? The truck window they rolled down in “Cruise?” The flatbill Tyler Hubbard wore filming a video with Nelly? Or was that Bebe Rexha? Or the Backstreet Boys? Who cares…

Embarrassing I know, but there is good news…

These two bozos darkened the door of the Country Music Hall of Fame and told People Magazine what many of us already saw coming… they taking a break from Florida Georgia Line.

At least, that’s what Tyler Hubbard is calling it:

“I think ‘taking a break’ is the proper term, as opposed to breaking up.”

Brian Kelley added:

“We’re not going our separate ways, we’re taking a break from recording our music.”

Tyler continues

“We’re sort of using these last 12 shows as a time to celebrate FGL, celebrate the fans, celebrate each other, and then support each other on the next chapter of our musical and creative journey, which is gonna be individually for a while. So we’re excited.”

These “last 12 shows,” eh? Sounds an awful lot like a going away tour to me…

But we all saw this coming, right?

And keep in mind, this comes on the heels of a publicized (thanks to us) Presidential Election spat between the longtime duo that resulted in Tyler Hubbard and his wife unfollowing Brian and his wife on social media.

And while they said they weren’t breaking up, Tyler did admit to unfollowing them over their political beliefs and that they wanted to try doing their own thing. Then they canceled their fall tour and all signs pointed to more than just a little trouble in paradise.

Kelley has always kinda been the background guy for Tyler Hubbard his whole career with FGL. He just sings a couple lines of each song (if he’s lucky), and then goes right back to dancing next to Tyler Hubbard.

So it wasn’t surprising that he wanted to release his own album, which he did (it was meh), and now he’ll be touring on his own this spring. But aside from a handful of festival dates for FGL as a duo this year… it looks like this is the beginning of the end.

Although, despite the “break,” they do say that they’ll always remains brothers.

“When you live with somebody on the road and you go through everything, there’s a connection. You don’t lose that. You have history. We’ve built something that’s way bigger than us — because of our fans, because of our team. And it’ll always be.”

Only time will tell…

In the meantime, if you want to go see the “Mix It Up Strong” exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame, it’s open.

Of course they would fucking call it that…
