Florida Georgia Line Loves Playing “Tourist”
It's not all work for Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard when the duo hits the road. Brian and Tyler enjoy playing the tourist role when they're in a new city and love to take in all the local sights and sounds. The guys talk about their traveling life in a new installment of Country Weekly's On the Road series in the May 27 issue.
Country Weekly followed Brian and Tyler to shows in Athens, Ga., and Florence, S.C. In each city, the two buddies walked around and got a sense of the local flavor. "That's something we like to do when we're in a town and we have time," Brian says. "It's awesome to meet new people and experience new things. That's one of the perks of being on tour."
During their Athens stop, Tyler and Brian received a tour of the University of Georgia's athletic center from the school's head football coach, Mark Richt. "Coach Richt and some of the football team showed us around. It was a really cool experience," Brian says.
In South Carolina, Florida Georgia Line opened for Luke Bryan on his Dirt Road Diaries Tour and surprised the headliner by taking the stage sporting wigs. "We figured that he'd get a big laugh out of it," Tyler recalls. "Luke's a fun guy."
