Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley met as students at Nashville’s Belmont University, where they played local clubs and wrote songs between classes. Now, the two are touring with Taylor Swift and Luke Bryan, and making a stop at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair, where they will perform at 8 p.m. Monday.
“There’s nothing better than performing, and it’s fun as heck,” said Kelley, the Florida half of the duo. “Our fans are amazing and it’s great seeing them go crazy singing along with us. They feed off of our energy and we feed off of theirs. There’s nothing like it.”
The Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winners are also the first in 21 years to top the country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. Their album, Here’s to the Good Times, recently landed the top spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making them one of three artists in the past six years to earn such an accomplishment.
However, the pair behind hits including “Cruise” and “Get Your Shine On” still target a great deal of their effort into performing for their fans.
“People can expect a party and a good time,” said Kelley. “Our motto is to make every night epic, and we’ll do what it takes to do it.”
