Florida Georgia Line has officially split, with each member pursuing solo careers: Taking a look back

Over the course of 12 years in Nashville, the duo's blend of country, hip-hop, and rock elements achieved unprecedented commercial success. Their debut single "Cruise," released in 2012, was eventually remixed by rap superstar Nelly (who later collaborated with the duo again for their last hit, 2021's "Little Bit") and became the first country song ever to receive the Diamond (10 million sales) certification, spending 24 weeks at number one on Billboard's Country sales chart.
Hubbard stated on Bobby Bones' podcast in July 2022 that the breakup occurred because Kelley initiated them going solo, despite the fact that there is "no bad blood between the two of them." Hubbard did say they "might revisit getting the duo back together in 10 to 15 years." He then joked that they would not reunite before then, "even if they were offered a million dollars to play a wedding." This came after Hubbard admitted that he and Kelley had previously attended therapy but "[hugged] it out because we're brothers and that's what brothers do." Hubbard went on to say that he was "excited" for their final run of concerts together because it would be "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 will be individually for a while."

The renowned act was involved in social media squabbles in 2020, including Hubbard unfollowing Kelley during the US presidential election cycle. He told radio host Storme Warren, "I even called him and told him, 'Hey buddy, I love you.'" And I like you a lot more in person than I do on your stories right now. So I'm simply going to, which is why I'm unfollowing you. It's nothing personal. I still have feelings for you. You'll always be my brother.' I simply didn't want to see it every time I logged into Instagram. As a result, it wasn't a big deal."

Wednesday night marked the official end of a commercially and socially dynamic era in country music history.

Florida Georgia Line, comprised of Monroe, Georgia native Tyler Hubbard and Ormond Beach, Florida native Brian Kelley, performed their final show together on Wednesday night at the Minnesota State Fair. Before performing their set finale, "Cruise," they thanked the audience for their unwavering support throughout their collaboration.

Rumors circulated in February 2022 that the duo might be splitting up.

"I think 'taking a break' is a better term than 'breaking up," Hubbard told People. "We're not splitting up," Kelley clarified. "We're taking a break from making music." We're being creative. We enjoy making things. So, a few years ago, we started writing separately and trying different writers, and now we're both doing that with our music."
