In a couple of days, Tyler Hubbard will hit the road as the direct supporting act for headliner Kane Brown on his In the Air tour. Performing before Kane marks a slight shift for Tyler, who remembers when his pal was opening for Florida Georgia Line.

“It was incredible to watch him take on the challenge and grow a ton on that tour and now it’s full circle. Now I’m getting to open up for him and I’ve watched him play and I’m just like, ‘Wow!’ He’s really grown into something special and he’s just an awesome dude. He’s a great artist.”
