Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong • Making of the Exhibit
Current Exhibits • 5m 59s
Take a behind-the-scenes look at the development of the exhibition “Florida Georgia Line: Mix It Up Strong” alongside Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley and members of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum staff.
The exhibition—open February 6, 2022, through January 1, 2023—follows the story of the duo's formation, development, and swift rise to chart-topping success, told via personal artifacts and intimate details. Here, the process of collecting and learning about those pieces and moments is on display.
Among other memories and artifacts, Tyler Hubbard introduces his first-ever guitar, gifted to him by his father's business partner in fourth grade for a promise to learn to play it. Brian Kelley shows off the Takamine "dream guitar" that the duo's hit "Cruise" was written on, and offers a peek into storage units stuffed with tokens of the duo's success.
The Museum's Michael Gray offers insight into how the artifact collection and exhibition development processes unfold, and where Florida Georgia Line's story fits into the continuum of country music history; curator Jack Clutter talks about the importance of items on display, and how pieces are processed, catalogued, and protected inside the Museum.
