Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley hosted an exclusive VIP Party on June 5 for the grand opening of their new Nashville venue, FGL House.

The four-story attraction at 122 3rd Ave South features multiple bars, the largest “Cruise” rooftop in Nashville and a basement-level lounge with a baby grand piano. Throughout the evening, a video wall showcased clips from FGL and other country artists, while Dee Jay Silver mixed tunes (he’ll be there every week for Country Club Tuesdays).

Industry insiders were also treated to a number of selections from the menu, including fried oysters, chicken lollipops, horseradish salmon, burgers and salads, as well as craft beers and signature cocktails made with FGL’s Old Camp Whiskey.

In addition to thanking the crowd for attending, Tyler and Brian debuted an unfinished video for their upcoming single, “Smooth,” which features songwriter Craig Wiseman and an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas.

“What excites Tyler and I the most is always staying creative,” said Brian. “We love seeing what fresh things we can come up with to take our music to a new level and turn our dreams into reality.”

“We want FGL House to be just as welcoming, fun and entertaining for our guests as if they were coming out to one of our shows—nothing but good food, good drinks and good times,” added Brian.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
