Headlining the Minnesota State Fair last night, the duo made their final appearance as Florida Georgia Line, and while there is always the possibility of a comeback and/or a reunion someday in the future (will definitely happen when they want to make some more money), it definitely didn’t sound like just a “break.”
Tyler Hubbard told the crowd early in the set:
“This is our last official concert as Florida Georgia Line… let’s see what we got left in the tank.”
Later on in the set, they thanked fans for giving them the last 10 years:
“What this night means to us is the closing of an incredible, incredible chapter for us, and it’s very exciting for us to look at what’s ahead… but we wanna celebrate this chapter with you guys. So tonight, can we sing this chorus one more time together?
This will be the last time BK and I get to hear you guys sing it so I wanna see how loud you can sing this one.”
Tying a bow on more than a decade that brought us nothing but Daisy Duke denim, jacked up trucks, bonfires, and sippin’ on Fireball because “it’z jut what we do.”
I mean, there’s been plenty of bad country music over the years, and plenty more still to come, but you really gotta hand it to T-Hubbs and BK for ushering in an era of just absolute trash. True pioneers of the genre… in the worst possible way.
Of course, everything went downhill during their political feud back during the 2020 election when Brian and Tyler (and their wives) unfollowed each other on Instagram. With the Kelleys seeming to lean a little more to the Right and the Hubbards more to the left, there was some very apparent friction over the election, and COVID policy, and Tyler admitted as much after the dust cleared.
Both Brian and Tyler will be working on their solo careers, and for the time being, and as much as I enjoy the end of FGL on the radio waves, the thought of both them being on separately doesn’t necessarily sound like win.
Either way, at least we’ll forever have this video to laugh our asses off to:
Wheeler Walker Jr. Kicked Out Of Country Music Hall Of Fame For Protesting Florida Georgia Line Exhibit
Justice for Wheeler!
Ol’ Wheeler Walker Jr. is back leading the charge against pop country music. A few weeks ago he announced a brand new album, Sex, Drugs & Country Music, a new tour, and dropped the first single, a tenderhearted love song called “F*cked By a Country Boy.”
Well it looks like Wheeler was serious about getting cancelled, and the first place to cancel him was none other than the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Wheeler posted a video to his social media showing himself staging a little one-man protest at the Hall of Fame against their current Florida Georgia Line exhibit.
Finally, a cause I can get behind.
I mean seriously, of all the deserving artists, why the hell would the Country Music Hall of Fame choose to honor Florida Georgia Line? I obviously haven’t been to the exhibit because literally anything else is a better use of my time, but what does the display even consist of? Tyler Hubbard’s can of Axe body spray? Brian Kelley’s gold chain? The computer used to autotune the classic hit “Swerve?”
Whatever it is, Wheeler is doing the Lord’s work, heading down to the Hall of Fame armed with a sign that says “FGL Does Not Belong Here” to let them know how country fans feel.
Proudly chanting that “Florida Georgia Line does not belong in the Hall of Fame” and asking visitors exiting the museum if they saw the FGL exhibit and “saw their panties,” it didn’t take long once he got inside the building for Ol’ Wheeler to draw the attention of security.
And even after asking them if they could play him a country FGL song, security still bounced Wheeler from the Hall of Fame.
How are you gonna do Wheeler like that? The pussy king, the pop country killin’ machine himself – kicked out of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
If anybody deserves an exhibit in the Hall of Fame it’s Wheeler – although then it probably wouldn’t be the family friendly attraction it is now.
