Florida Georgia Line Wanted to Co-Produce Their Album to Expand Their Resumes
Artists, performers, songwriters and now — after the release of their latest album, Can't Say I Ain't Country in February — Florida Georgia Line are officially producers.
The triple-threat duo has recently tried their hands at co-producing, something they have previously done, but in a less official capacity without a label or title.
"A lot of the production happens in the writing room a lot of the ideas and the sounds," the duo's Tyler Hubbard says in an interview with their record label, Big Machine.
Head producer Joey Moi is the mastermind behind the Florida Georgia Line sound, and Hubbard adds, "We don't want to take anything away from what Joey Moi does. We call him a genius, we call him a wizard, I mean he's just next level. But we've learned so much from him over the years, as well."
The timing was perfect for the duo to add another role to their resume as a duo. "It just felt like it was kind of time to say 'Hey, you know we have our hand in every single step of the process, even down to the mixing notes and little tiny tweaks here and there. BK and I are really particular about it so why not at least be co-producers on this project?" the country singer relates.
"I don't know why we haven't done it before. I think we sorta just haven't thought about it," he adds. "But as we move along in our career you know, there's other projects we've co-produced and worked on and it kind of just opened up the door a little bit to just say 'Hey we co-produce our stuff we should definitely be co-producers on the thing.'"
The duo is open to any future opportunities to really flex their producing muscles.
"Maybe that will open up more opportunities to produce and co-produce other artists' projects and things like that," Hubbard suggests.
