Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Encourages Fans to Vote, Research Candidates
Election Day is coming up quickly (Nov. 6), and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard wants to make sure his fans are not only going to participate, but that they are also fully equipped to hit the polls.
Hubbard posted a photo to social media of himself and wife Hayley proudly showing off their "I Voted" stickers, and, while he didn't endorse anyone specifically, he also added screenshots of overview information about the candidates running in his state, Tennessee. "Y'all make the time to educate yourself and go vote," he noted. "I'm really happy I did."
Hubbard's nonpartisan call to action is just one of several moves by country musicians to inspire their fans to vote. In July, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill teamed with former First Lady Michelle Obama for a new voting initiative called the When We All Vote Campaign. Also, Taylor Swift recently made an unprecedented political statement on her part by endorsing Tennessee Senate nominee Phil Bredesen, as well as urging her young fanbase to make their voices heard at the ballot boxes.
As for FGL, the busy duo has plenty of things going on besides researching their state ballot. They have revealed that they will release their fourth studio album in the early part of 2019. In addition to the single "Simple," they have teased fans with a new track titled "Colorado," as well as the ballad "Talk You Out of It."
