Florida Georgia Line will be honored by Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum with a new exhibit on their music and career. Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong will open on January 21, 2022, and run for a full year until January 1, 2023.
The Exhibit Will Take Visitors on a Trip Down Memory Lane
The exhibit will showcase items that make a big impact on the lives of the members of the group; going as far back to when the band first formed while in college to some others used more recently. These will include instruments, awards, stage and screen costumes, and personal artifacts. Highlights include their diamond certification award for “Cruise” issued by the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA). Plus the Takamine GB7C Garth Brooks Signature acoustic guitar that Kelley strummed while writing the song.

From Meeting in College to Country Stars
“I still remember being at the Country Q studio with BK [Brian Kelley] recording ‘Cruise,’ and having this feeling like we had created something special,” Tyler says. “And I’ll never forget when BK said, ‘We’re gonna sell a million copies of this song.’ I thought he was shooting for the stars then! Neither of us had any idea what would happen next.”
He continues, “To be chosen for an exhibit is the ultimate honor as an artist, and we can’t thank the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum enough. I can’t wait for opening day when we can stand back and take in this blessing with everyone that’s supported us along the way.”
“… It’s truly mind-blowing. We are both dreamers and always striving to go big,” Brian adds. “To have the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum now feature our wild ride is surreal and humbling. I couldn’t be more excited about this exhibit and to be able to relive each step of our journey. Here’s to the good times!”
The duo will take part in a conversation and performance in the museum’s CMA Theater on February 6; to talk about their career and the stories behind the items in Mix It Up Strong. Tickets are available now at CountryMusicHallofFame.org
