The controversial policy of 2020 even influenced the Florida Georgia Line.
Tyler Hubbard confirmed Tuesday that Brian Kelley’s political messages on social media – which he disapproves of – caused him and his wife, Hayley Hubbard, to unfollow his bandmates earlier this month. The Hubbards support President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris, while Kelley and his wife Brittney Kelley do not.
“Somebody sent me an article two days ago in which I and BK broke up and I thought, ‘Well, this is news for me. ‘But no … I didn’t follow BK for a couple of days while we were going through this political event in the middle of this election and everything that’s going on,’ Hubbard said on the episode of SiriusXM’s Exit 209 on the podcast from Storme Warren on Thursday. “And I even called him and said to him, ‘Hey buddy, I love you. And I love you much more in real life than in your stories right now. So I’ll just do it, that’s why I’m not following you. Nothing personal. I still love you. You are still my brother ‘I just didn’t want to see it every time I opened Instagram. And so it wasn’t a big deal. “
Hubbard, who has criticized President Trump in the past, said the two were on “good terms” at the time of the interview. Indeed, Kelley appeared next to him.

“We literally talked on the phone yesterday,” Kelley said, “just showing the final details of our taping and working on getting some tour cities out of here and making some announcements soon.”
Hubbard, who pulled out of this month’s Country Music Association Awards after testing positive for COVID-19, insisted the Grammy-nominated duo are solid after both went to great lengths to make their 10-year partnership work bring to.
“It’s not all covered with sugar. So the truth is – and I think it’s important to talk about it – that I and BK did some work. We went to therapy, we sat together and sometimes we wanted to kill each other, ”said Hubbard. “But in the end we hugged it. You know what I mean? Because we are brothers and we are brothers. And brothers don’t always get along. So we had moments when we wanted to kill each other, but a lot out of love. “
The story goes on
He said the effort strengthened their bond.
Kelley joked that the disagreement was still not resolved: “We’re going to get full WWE on this.”
