Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley Partners with Warner Music Nashville for Solo Music: Exclusive

Brian Kelley, one half of Florida Georgia Line, has signed a deal for his solo work with Warner Music Nashville.

Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley has formed Nashville South Records, a partnership with Warner Music Nashville, as an outlet for his solo music.

Kelley is expected to release solo music this spring, with a full album coming later this year.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level,” Kelley said. “This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”


“We are honored that Brian Kelley chose WMN as home to his solo endeavors,” said Warner Music Nashville EVP A&R Cris Lacy. “I’ve been an FGL believer from day one, and BK’s clear vision for himself and his upcoming project is a testament to his heart, soul, and talent. His new music is the perfect antidote to 2020, and what an incredible way to start 2021!”

Kelley posted an Instagram teaser yesterday for his next musical chapter and launched his new website this morning.

Florida Georgia Line’s fifth studio album for BMLG Records, Life Rolls On, debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Album chart following its February release. First single “I Love My Country,” reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, while current single, “Long Live” is No. 3 on Country Airplay with a bullet. Chase Rice and FGL’s video for their joint single, “Drinkin’ Beer, Talkin’ God. Amen” came out earlier this week.


In November, FGL, which also includes Tyler Hubbard, signed a long-term touring deal with Live Nation to make the promoting giant the duo’s exclusive promoter in North America. They hope to tour later this year, depending on the pandemic.

Kelley and Hubbard are also partners in several ventures including FGL House, Round Here Records, Tree Vibez Music, Old Camp Whiskey and Wolf Moon Bourbon.

Kelley is managed by Irving Azoff and Jeffrey Azoff at Full Stop Management in partnership with Bruce Kalmick and Eddie Kloesel at Why & How.
