Tyler Hubbard Earns First Number as a Solo Artist with “5 Foot 9”

Tyler Hubbard earns his first number one song at country radio with his debut single, “5 Foot 9.” Learn all the details here.

While Tyler Hubbard (Florida Georgia Line) is no country music newbie, the frontman took the plunge into becoming a solo artist earlier this year. Back in May, Hubbard emerged with his debut song, “5 Foot 9.” In just a few short months, the track became a hit on country radio. Today the song marks Hubbard’s first solo number-one single at country radio.

The debut single was the perfect re-introduction to the singer-songwriter and his incredible talent. “5 Foot 9” is a love song dedicated to Hubbard’s wife. Written by Hubbard with The Cadillac Three leader Jaren Johnston and Chase McGill, “5 Foot 9” signifies the singer’s staying power in country music, no matter what the role.

“Dry wood makes good fires // Goodyears make good swings // All that’s all good but for me // God makes five foot nine, brown eyes, and a sundress // Loves Tim McGraw and a small town accent // Ain’t no way that me and this truck made her fall in love // Jack makes good whiskey but God makes the good stuff // Oh, God makes the good stuff”

It will be exciting to see how this new chapter in Hubbard’s life continues to evolve. Fans can expect his full-length solo album debut in January 2023. Congratulations to Tyler Hubbard and his team on their first number-one single with “5 Foot 9.”
