Florida Georgia Line recently shared the news that in addition to their duo project, both Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard will spend some time exploring solo projects. For Brian, that means an entire album, which kind of came together during quarantine when he became what he calls “reconnected” with his guitar.
He tells us: “I feel like I’ve reconnected with my guitar and my instrument. I stopped playing with a pick, and I didn’t plan on that. I just started playing a bunch this summer and kind of would walk out to our porch, and I had this smaller guitar. I could just kinda walk around carrying it and it was super easy. And then the next thing you know, I tried to play with a pick and I’m like, ‘that feels crazy.’ I used to play with a pick all the time and that felt really weird. So, just a different kind of thing for me and just really enjoying trying to better myself on the guitar and play a bunch of different songs I never learned before, and just try to work on my skills a little bit. And I think that’s also helped me through quarantine and through this time help my songwriting. So, I’m just excited about, kind of a creative re-birth in a sense.”
So far, no release date has been released.
Florida Georgia Line will release their new album, Life Rolls On, next month.
