Florida Georgia Line Loves '90s Country, Relates To Alabama


(Undated) -- Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley says he and Tyler Hubbard are big fans of country music from the 1990s. The singer tells CMT.com they grew up listening to Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks, BlackHawk, and Alabama, and calls their music "timeless." He also stresses, "That's country music." But Brian says when he and Tyler were in college they were also big hip-hop and rock fans, which shows in Florida Georgia Line's music.

Kelley adds that Florida Georgia Line and Alabama can they "relate" to each other, because they've both irked traditional country fans with their sound. He explains that back in the '70s, when Alabama was "rocking out" in bars, "people said they weren't country." But Brian says "the cool thing about country music" is "anything's possible."
