Tyler Hubbard hails from the small town of Monroe, Georgia. His interest in music started in the church, where he began to learn guitar and eventually becoming the youth worship leader. While in high school, Tyler began to write with three of his best friends. The group of friends called themselves Ingenious Circuit and they would spend hours after school rapping and coming up with cool beats.
After high school, Tyler decided to move to Nashville to attend Belmont University to study in their prestigious Music Business program. During his sophomore year, Tyler lost his father in a tragic helicopter accident. As difficult as it was, he returned to Nashville to continue on his dream, something he knew would have made his father proud.
After graduation, Tyler continued to write and play live shows. It was during this time that he met his best friend and duo partner, Brian Kelley. The two are the members of the duo, Florida Georgia Line. "It's such a blessing that we get to do this for a living, not just a hobby," says Hubbard.
In the fall of 2011, Tyler signed to Big Loud Shirt as his first publishing deal. Shortly after that, he had his first cut from another artist when Jason Aldean recorded his song “Black Tears.” Since signing with Big Loud Shirt, Florida Georgia Line signed a record deal with Republic Nashville. Their first single “Cruise” landed at the #1 spot in December 2012. At the same time they released their debut album “Here’s To The Good Times” which also landed at the #1 spot for Country album sales.
The band is currently on tour opening for Luke Bryan’s 2013 arena tour as well as headlining their own club tour. Their second single “Get Your Shine On” is also climbing up the carts.
