Three days after announcing their split with longtime management home, Big Loud, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have inked with Full Stop Management, the Los Angeles-based management company under the umbrella of Irving Azoff’s The Azoff Company.
Billboard confirmed the news, which was first reported by Music Row.
As Billboard reported Jan. 31, FGL had been managed by Big Loud’s Seth England and Kevin “Chief” Zaruk since the duo’s first single, 2012’s “Cruise,” which is Nielsen Music’s best-selling digital country single.
“It has been an incredible journey with our Big Loud family and we are so thankful for the last nine years,” said Hubbard and Kelley in a Jan. 31 statement.”As we continue to evolve, so do our needs and our team. Although bittersweet, we and Big Loud are excited to support and encourage each other as we enter the next chapter of our careers, and welcome a new family into our world with open arms.”
England and Zaruk, as well as the fellow Big Loud Partners, Joey Moi and Craig Wiseman said, “We can’t say enough how much love we have for both BK and T-Hubb. We have achieved more in nine years than any of us could have ever dreamed. We’re really proud of almost a decade full of record-breaking success with the two young kids we met in 2011.”
Full Stop Management declined to comment further.
