Hubbard, whose solo career is managed by Gary Borman, will debut new music during private listening sessions at the Universal Music Group Nashville office starting May 10.
His partner in FLG, Brian Kelley, released a solo album last June through Nashville South Records/Warner Music Nashville.
Though the pair has seven remaining festival dates coming this summer, including Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam in Panama City Beach, Fla. on June 4, and Country Thunder Wisconsin in Twin Lakes on July 24, they made it clear earlier this year that they were taking a hiatus from recording together to work on solo projects. At the opening of FGL’s exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in February, Hubbard told People, “We’re sort of using these last 12 shows as a time to celebrate FGL, celebrate the fans, celebrate each other, and then support each other on the next chapter of our musical and creative journey, which is gonna be individually for a while.”
In addition to working on his solo material, Hubbard co-wrote Little Big Town’s current single, “Hell Yeah.” He and Russell Dickerson also appear on “Death Row” on Thomas Rhett’s new album, about their experiences visiting with inmates on death row in Nashville.
FGL’s run so far has been record-breaking. Their 2012 single, “Cruise,” is the best-selling digital country single, according to Luminate (formerly MRC Data). Four of their five studio albums reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart, while their 13 No. 1s on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart include “Round Here,” “Simple,” “This Is How We Roll” and, most recently, 2020’s “Long Live.” “Meant To Be,” their collaboration with Bebe Rexha, spent a record-setting 50 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
