Tyler Hubbard just traded one tour mate for another.
After a decade as one half of the Florida Georgia Line, Hubbard is embarking on a solo career with a new project — and a new tour. However, this time he’s playing shows with Keith Urban.
Urban and Hubbard – who share a manager – announced Tuesday that “5 Foot 9” singer Urban and support act Ingrid Andress will be joining on his “THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR” this fall.
Hubbard’s first show of Urban’s worldwide journey will be held on September 3rd at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA.
“I am very excited to have my brother, Tyler Hubbard, coming out and joining Ingrid (Andress) and I on the fall leg of my SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR,” Urban said in a statement. “It’s like Ocean’s 11 shit and it’s gonna be a BLAST!!!!!”
Members of the country music community quickly chimed in with their support.
Chris Lane said: “Congratulations man, that’s awesome!”
Canaan Smith threw up a 🙌 emoji and actress Rita Wilson, who also sings country music, said, “Yay.”
Hubbard is fast releasing new solo songs this summer including 5 Foot 9, 35s and his next digital release Way Home, which will be available Friday. Urban released his first new song of 2022 “Brown Eyes Baby” on Friday.
“I’ve written and recorded a lot of new music for my first solo album, songs that are made to be played live,” Hubbard said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to be joining Keith (Urban) on his fall tour and can’t wait to play it for the first time to fans across the country.”
