Alright, it’s not really as bad as it sounds. Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line didn’t quit his award-winning duo with Brian Kelley. Instead, he made a public statement that he was giving up social media to get “back to the basics.”
Using an Instagram post to bid farewell to his digital fans, Hubbard poured his soul out, explaining why he made the personal decision to no longer post on social media and will leave all public updates to the Florida Georgia Line and Kelley accounts. In relevant part, Hubbard assured his fans he is not stepping out of the spotlight; just logging off from this particular place in the world…for now.
I love my fans and promise I’m not gone forever but I’m taking some time to refocus on my relationships, the Lord, my marriage, my family, and my music.

I've done a lot of thinking and praying about this for the last few days and I think it's time for me to take a break from social media indefinitely. I spend way to much of my valuable time worrying about my next post or how many comments or likes I got. Honestly it's a little ridiculous and I'm ready to get back to focusing all my attention on the things that really matter. I love my fans and promise I'm not gone forever but I'm taking some time to refocus on my relationships, the Lord, my marriage, my family, and my music. Maybe I'll even learn a new instrument instead of learning how to snap chat. I want to make sure that I'm living my life to the fullest and not worrying about making a highlight reel for the world to talk about or comparing my life to other peoples highlight reels. That's not what life is about. #backtothebasics
