Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard announces new solo single ‘5 Foot 9’

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard announced earlier this month that he has signed as a solo artist to EMI Nashville and now he’s sharing news about his solo project, which he’s been working on for over a year.

The first single off that project is called “5 Foot 9,” set to drop on May 20. Hubbard wrote the song with Jaren Johnston — of The Cadillac Three — and Nashville songwriter Chase McGill. Hubbard shared in a statement: “Songwriting is central to everything I do as an artist. It has allowed me to connect with fans for many years, and I’m excited for everyone to hear new music for a new chapter in my career.”

Florida Georgia Line announced that they were going on hiatus in February, but Hubbard has been keeping busy. He co-wrote Little Big Town’s current single, “Hell Yeah,” and wrote and sang on the Thomas Rhett-led “Death Row,” along with Russell Dickerson. Meanwhile, FGL will still be hitting the stage together this year, with seven festival dates booked including the upcoming Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Florida next month.
