Brian Kelly, born August 26, 1985, in Ormond Beach, Florida, USA, is an American singer, known as one of the members of the duo, ‘Florida Georgia Line’.
As a child, Kelly always loved music but when Garth Brooks’ double live CD was released it became a huge part of his awareness of how an artist could pull such strong emotions out of the songs they were singing.
At age 16, Brian began to sing. He would help out at his church’s youth band and to this day he is still very involved at Crossroads Church in Lebanon, that he calls home.
One of Brian’s other talents is baseball. However, his love of the game could not overpower his love of music.
While in University, Kelly took a class on songwriting and soon after graduation, he began go to local writer’s nights to become more involved in the songwriting community. It is during this time where he met his best friend and duo partner, Tyler Hubbard. The two are the members of the duo, Florida Georgia Line.
In April 2012, Florida Georgia Line released their first single to radio, “Cruise.” In June 2013, the album reached number 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
