FGL’s Tyler Hubbard Encourages Fans to Vote, Learn About the Candidates
With Election Day (Nov. 6) growing closer, Florida Georgia Line member Tyler Hubbard has posted a snapshot to Instagram reminding fans how it important it is to make their voices heard at the polls this fall. The post shows Hubbard and his wife Hayley smiling and sporting "I Voted" stickers.
"Y'all make the time to educate yourself and go vote," Hubbard writes alongside the image. "I'm really happy I did. Here's some basics on candidate[s] in TN." The country star also included a list of basic information about Tennessee's candidates in the running and their viewpoints, in order to help would-be voters educate themselves about which candidates best represent their values.
Hubbard is one of a string of artists to encourage their fanbases to participate in the upcoming election. 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. More recently, pop superstar Taylor Swift also took to social media to inspire her fans to vote, as well as sharing that she will be voting for Democratic nominee and former Nashville mayor Phil Bredesen in the Tennessee Senate Race over his opponent, Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn. It was the first time Swift had endorsed a candidate or publicly shared her stance on an election.
In music-related news, Florida Georgia Line are currently gearing up for the 2018 CMA Awards, at which they are nominated in three separate categories: Vocal Duo of the Year, Musical Event of the Year (for "Meant to Be," the group's collaboration with Bebe Rexha) and Single of the Year (also for "Meant to Be"). In a recent interview, Hubbard explained that FGL is not only honored to be nominated, but they're also excited to come together with all their industry friends for a night of country music. "It's gonna be a little country music family reunion, so we'll get to see all our friends and catch up," he added.
