Florida Georgia Line, more affectionately known as the FGL boys, could be considered country music royalty. Why you ask? Well, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are collecting royalties for a string of hits that they have written for themselves and others!
Besides hosting a team of amazing writers at their publishing house, TreeVibez, the boys themselves have penned many songs for some of the biggest powerhouses in country music!
Most recent? Jason Aldean’s hit, “You Make It Easy” was written by Brian and Tyler (along with Morgan Wallen and Jordan Schmidt). The FGL boys are also responsible for past Aldean hits, “When The Lights Come On” and 2014’s summer anthem, “Burnin’ It Down.”
Tyler Hubbard also wrote a song for Mason Ramsey. That’s right! Along with hit songwriter and producer Corey Crowder, and songwriting forces Sarah Buxton and Cannan Smith, Hubbard made the Walmart Yodel Boy even more “Famous,” with the catchy classic of the same name!
Georgia boy Cole Swindell is no stranger to the fellas of Florida Georgia Line, either! In addition to being a buddy of the boys, Hubbard and Kelley (with Cole and Michael Carter) are responsible for his hit “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight.” They also co-wrote Swindell’s song “Party Wasn’t Over” with frequent co-writer Cannan Smith.
Another song turned country gold by FGL? “Happens Like That” by Granger Smith. Penned by Tyler Hubbard, Jordan Schmidt, Andy Albert, and Justin Wilson; this sweet love song has a country throwback vibe reminding us of the simple moments shared with a new love over a drink or two.
Something tells us that Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have plenty of reasons to raise a glass themselves right now. From their never ending #1 “Meant To Be” with Bebe Rexha, to the success of their downtown Nashville bar, FGL House, to their dynamite careers as both a duo and songwriters, FGL is a force to be reckoned with, and we’re happy to be in the eye of that storm!
