Florida Georgia Line know, despite their political differences, they have more interests that unite them than divide them.
Florida Georgia Line star Tyler Hubbard has shot down reports of a break-up after unfollowing his bandmate on social media, insisting he just needed a break from his politics.
"Somebody sent me an article two days ago that me and BK were breaking up and I thought, 'Well, that's that's news to me.' But no".
Though the artist did confirm he briefly unfollowed bandmate Brian Kelley on social media earlier this month, Tyler explained to host Storme Warren on SiriusXM's Exit 209 that there's no bad blood between the friends.
"I even called him and told him, I said, 'Hey, buddy, I love you". I said, "Hey buddy, I love you". So I'm just going to - so that's why I'm unfollowing you. Nothing personal. I still love you. You're still my brother.' I just didn't want to see it every time I opened Instagram.
The two are bandmates and close friends, but their political views don't always line up: While Hubbard was quarantining on his bus after contracting COVID-19, Kelley was among the artists calling for a return to touring after crowds began gathering in cities across the United States to both protest and celebrate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris' election following the November 3 presidential election. "And so it wasn't a big deal".
Democrat Hubbard shut down Republican Brian Kelley for a few days around the general election as the duo pulled out of an appearance at the Country Music Academy Awards due to a COVID-related health scare.
Hubbard, who's criticized President Trump in the past, said the two were on "great terms" at the time of the interview.
"It's not all sugar-coated".
He shared that this isn't the first time he and Brian have butted heads, telling Storme, "We've went to therapy, we've sat with each other and wanting to kill each other at times". And so the truth is - and I think this is important to talk about - me and BK have done work. But by the end of it, we were hugging it out. You know what I mean?
"We're brothers and that's what brothers do". And, and brothers don't always get along. "We're loving and supporting each other through even all the chapters that we're in now and excited for the future".
"We are going to go full WWE on this thing", adds Kelley.
