Florida Georgia Line on Married Life: We're Learning 'Every Day' to Be Better Men
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard open up about bringing their wives on tour
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line have been on their Anything Goes tour since January, but life on the road hasn’t affected their marriages one bit.
“They’ve been out with us the whole tour, so we have a blast,” Kelley said of his wife Brittney Marie Cole Kelley, and Hubbard’s wife, Hayley Stommel Hubbard. “Everyone works hard out here, has a good time, and we bring our dogs out here and it’s a great time.”
For the guys, the love and support they get from their spouses is essential to their success.
“It’s awesome for them to come out here and support us and get to watch us every night and sing to them,” Kelley said before taking the stage to headline Friday’s Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. “We’re singing to our fans and that includes them. It’s cool to have your best friend and your lover and your support group with you. It’s awesome.”
Their wives are more than just fans, though. They’re making the hard-partying duo better people all together.
“Married life is better than ever,” Hubbard said. “Like [Kelley] said, we’re loving it and wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re just learning every day how to be better husbands and better men, but hopefully that will never stop for us, but it’s great. We love it.”
The women haven’t exactly tamed their lifestyle yet either.
“It’s a safe assumption to say that our lifestyle reflects our music and vice versa,” Hubbard said, sipping water from a Solo cup. “I’m just taking a couple weeks off because my body needs it, but I’m not on the wagon.”
Kelley added, “I think it’s all about balance, man. Everybody likes to have a good time, and I think we’re just in a position where we want to be balanced. We work hard, we play hard.”
The focus, though, is still there. Family and work come first.
“We know what’s most important and so we get things done and we know when to lay back, when to rest,” Kelley said. “We both have the vision. There’s a time for everything, and balance is the key for everything.”
