Georgia-born Tyler Hubbard and Florida-born Brian Kelley each started playing guitar in high school. By the time they met atBelmontUniversity, they knew their singing and songwriting had potential for great things to come. That premonition proved to be right.
Their first EP was released December 14, 2010, with all of the songs written by either Hubbard or Hubbard and Kelley. That six-song EP that featured songs “You’re Country” and “Now That She’s Gone” was followed May 15, 2012 with a second EP. A featured song on that EP featured “Cruise” and “Get Your Shine On.”
Two months later, and Republic Nashville signed the duo to a record contract, rapidly releasing Hubbard and Kelley’s first studio album, Here’s to the Good Times. The December 4, 2012 released album included breakthrough song, “Cruise,” which reached No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart less than two weeks later. The album’s second single, “Get Your Sine On” was release to radio January 21, 2013, and reached No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart. The third song released, “Round Here” also went to No. 1, as well as the fourth single, “Stay.” In June, the Platinum-certified album reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
In their short career the duo has toured theUnited Statesas part of the Dirt Road Diaries Tour featuringThompson Squareand headlining Luke Bryan. Between 2012 and 2013, they also produced six music videos.
