Tyler Hubbard has had a very successful start to his second time around in the Country music world. After going his own way following years of record-breaking success with Florida Georgia Line, the 36-year-old has found his stride as a solo artist.
“I’ve got a new perspective and it’s a great place to be — not going to wish it away too quick,” Hubbard told Audacy’s Katie Neal. “It’s a fun part of the journey and I think the first time we were so set — eyes and goals — were so set on arenas and seeing how many tickets we could sell that we forgot to maybe enjoy the season of smaller, more intimate shows.”
The solo road has been kind to Hubbard as he celebrated his first #1 within a year of it’s release and already debuted his first solo album. The "5’ 9" singer plans to carry this momentum right into more new music and according to him, he already has a big head start.
“I’ve already recorded 12 songs and I have another session in a couple weeks to go record more,” he said of the progress he’s made towards his next solo project. “I’m just stacking songs up and figuring out how I’m going to roll them out next and what the play is. I love this part of the process — writing a ton and then going and tracking the songs and kind of watching it come together — it’s been fun.”
Sounds like there’s a lot more new music to look forward to from Hubbard. Hear more about it as well as his current tour, family life and more by checking out his conversation with Katie Neal on the Superstar Power Hour above.
