The Country Music Hall of Fame will unveil its latest exhibit: Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong, set to open in 2022. The exhibit chronicles the journey of Florida Georgia Line – comprised of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley — from meeting as students at an on-campus worship service at Belmont University in 2008, to becoming one of the biggest acts in country music history.
Among the items included in the exhibit are childhood memorabilia including the saxophone and guitar Tyler played as child, and the cap Brian wore while playing on his high school baseball team. Accomplishments from their career include the guitar Brian used when writing FGL’s RIAA Diamond-certified hit, “Cruise,” plus outfits worn in their music videos and more. Tyler said in a statement: “To be chosen for an exhibit is the ultimate honor as an artist, and we can’t thank the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum enough. I can’t wait for opening day, when we can stand back and take in this blessing with everyone that’s supported us along the way.” Brian added: “We are both dreamers and always striving to go big. To have the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum now feature our wild ride is surreal and humbling. I couldn’t be more excited about this exhibit and to be able to relive each step of our journey. Here’s to the good times!”
The Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong exhibit opens on January 21. FGL will also sit down at the Country Music Hall of Fame for an interview and performance on February 6.
