Bold in their musical and entrepreneurial ventures, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE invited local tastemakers to celebrate the grand opening of their Nashville-based creative compound, which houses MEET + GREET, TREE VIBEZ MUSIC, and TRIBE KELLEY TRADING POST, Tuesday night (10/30).
Standing in the middle of the charming magnolia tree-lined property on 21st Avenue in historic Hillsboro Village, FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard addressed guests under vibey string lights with the Tribe Kelley Trading Post’s signature teepee as their backdrop. Old Camp Whiskey, FGL HOUSE, Cambria, and WME sponsored the festivities.
“We wanted to create a place in Nashville that brings together music, fashion, business … even coffee, all under one roof, and we couldn’t be more excited,” shared Hubbard.
Kelley added, “Tyler and I are always creating, doing, and to be able to open up this space and share all of its creative energy and good vibes with our Nashville community is special.”
As each company offers a unique service to the booming Music City market, the multifaceted community was crafted in the same revolutionary spirit – “FGL thinks outside of the box,” praises Billboard – that FGL’s tapped throughout their record-breaking career.
Fueled by collaboration, meet + greet is an innovative hub for work and play. The 2,471-square-foot property includes five rooms, two private balconies, a full-service espresso bar plus grab-and-go cafe, and a tranquil green space. meet + greet offers an annual VIP membership program with added perks and exclusive discounts, or clients are able to reserve a spot as a temporary guest for meetings or personalized events.
A first-rate publishing company, the Tree Vibez Music headquarters features a state-of-the-art studio and writing rooms for their full roster: Jordan Schmidt, James McNair, Daniel Ross, Corey Crowder, RaeLynn, Canaan Smith, and Ernest K. Smith. Since launching in 2015, FGL has added a one-of-a-kind TVM bus to the mix, which has booked over 90 songwriters and artists for sessions while touring the country.
The Tribe Kelley Trading Post is the flagship store of Kelley’s wife Brittney’s clothing, accessories, and wellness line, Tribe Kelley (a second location, Tribe Kelley Surf Post, is now located in Grayton Beach, FL). Creating jobs domestically and ethically, each piece is designed with love, carefully sourced, and produced in the United States.
Jumping head-first into expanding their empire through business, FGL started with concocting easy-drinking spirit, OLD CAMP PEACH PECAN WHISKEY, as they toasted to their roots through the sweet taste of the Georgia peach and Southern pecan in 2016. One year later, they kicked open the doors to their 22,000-square-foot, Nashville-based restaurant, FGL HOUSE, which stands tall at four stories, including the “Little Red Corvette” basement-level lounge – complete with a baby grand piano, sunken marble dance floor, and infinity ceiling – all the way up to the massive “Cruise Rooftop.” With a menu spotlighting Southern cuisine with California twist, seven bars, two stages, and a jumbo video wall keep the packed party going all-day and night at the hot spot.

ABOUT FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE: Billboard‘s first-ever Trailblazer Award recipients continue to build their ever-expanding empire of innovative artistry and entrepreneurial endeavors throughout their colossal career. Turning up the heat with “Talk You Out of It,” the steamy single follows PLATINUM chart-topper “Simple” (16th #1 overall as artists) off their anticipated fourth studio album. Shattering records on their own accord, FGL’s collaborations have amplified their appeal as the 4X PLATINUM-certified #1 “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha leads the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the 48th week – the longest reign overall. Exceeding 4.2 billion streams, 31 million tracks, and more than 4.3 million albums sold worldwide, the BMLG Records’ duo became the first Country act to achieve RIAA’s DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their 11X-PLATINUM breakout “Cruise,” which is the best-selling digital Country single of all time (SoundScan). Since 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMAs, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards, and CMT Music Awards, plus left their mark on several chart-crushing songs as writers.
