FGL’s Tyler Hubbard Talks to Fans in New Hampshire in Honest VIP Event
"FGL changed my life", said one fan who was part of an intimate pre-show VIP experience with Tyler Hubbard in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.
Hubbard is half of the superstar duo Florida Georgia Line, and played a sold-out show at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. The venue hold about 2,000 concertgoers, but 20 of those people won a contest with 97.5 WOKQ and were treated to a private event before the show.
The same week, the star had celebrated his second number one song, "Dancing in the Country", as a solo artist. His first solo #1 was "5 foot 9", which he sang acoustically to the lucky winners in a private room at the Casino Ballroom.
Hubbard answered a number of questions like, "Can you go out and do normal things, like go to the movies, or out with the family?" He said yes, he and his family can still go out to places and not be inundated with folks.
He was also asked what other talent he has (besides music) that people might be surprised to know about. Tyler responded "nothing" at first, but then revised his answer to "sleeping, I'm really good at sleeping. I can sleep anywhere." The audience chuckled at that answer.
He was also asked what his favorite childhood snack was. He responded, "chocolate covered raisins, I loved those." When asked if his own children had been introduced to chocolate covered raisins yet, he said "no" without hesitation.
He was asked, "So, you're a Swiftie dad, eh?" Hubbard laughed and said "Yeah I am". He and wife, Hayley, took six-year-old Olivia to see Taylor Swift in Los Angeles, and the next week, according to Hubbard, he took his kids to see Morgan Wallen "to even it out", he joked and smiled.
Tyler Hubbard talked about his upcoming new single from a new project, although his solo album is barely 10 months old. The new song is "Back Then, Not Now" and will be out in September. He played it during his 75-minute set.
Meanwhile, Hubbard wrapped up the session taking photos with the small crowd, and gave a big thank you to radio and the fans.
As the concert ended hours later, another fan could be heard shouting, "Tyler Hubbard was so good, better than I thought he'd be, and his band was so (bleapin) tight!" THub did not disappoint.
