Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are linked with a country musical that has been described as a “classic musical with contemporary sensibilities.”
The successful country duo are on board to create original music for the still-untitled feature film. the hollywood reporter also shares that they will be reinventing country classics.
This is the second musical project that one or both FGL members have been linked to in the past 13 months. Steve Barnett and Alan Powell will produce this musical project for Monarch Media. Music video director TK McKamy (“May We All”) will also co-produce.
Hubbard and Kelley share that they’re excited to bring this musical to the big screen, though THR notes that Monarch is more recently known to produce At one week, a denominational musical for Netflix.
In 2019, Kelley was linked with a country musical called May we all which was to feature music from Florida Georgia Line and many other contemporary country stars. At the time, Variety reported that the production team was planning a Nashville premiere in 2021 and even linked names to the production. Hubbard was unrelated to this project, and little has been said about it since. Either musical would mark the first foray into theatrical musicals for the “Cruise” duo.
Other music videos McKamy has directed include “Confession” and “HOLY” for Florida Georgia Line, “Get Me Some of That” and “Die a Happy Man” for Thomas Rhett, and “Girl in a Country Song” for Maddie. & Tae.
Recently, Florida Georgia Line had to deny rumors of a breakup when it was discovered that Hubbard had not followed Kelley on social media. Speaking to SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, Hubbard said he had more to do with election season than any slap around COVID-19 and artists allowed to perform shows. Hubbard tested positive for COVID-19 just ahead of the duo’s scheduled performance at the CMA Awards. Around the same time as her announcement, Kelley wondered on social media why the bands couldn’t get back on stage amid the pandemic.
