Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald has a new article online featuring quotes from Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line ahead of their performance at WWE Tribute to the Troops 2014. The group performed at a recent episode of Monday Night Raw and spoke on the experience.
“It went great,” Hubbard recalled. “That’s why we continue to come back. WWE fans are awesome and loud and energetic and passionate. We really enjoyed it. To be honest, everyone that’s involved with WWE is so amazing and friendly. They are very welcoming. It was fun for us. The second time we were there they treated us like family almost. They were excited to see us. It just felt like a good fit. We enjoy what they do and the entertainment factor and how they entertain the world, which is pretty amazing.”
Hubbard went to praise John Cena.
“John Cena always went out of his way to be real nice to us and take pictures with us,” Hubbard said. “He just seemed like a down-to-earth really cool guy. He seemed really genuine. So in getting to know him, he seemed like a great guy…I think country music is pretty strong in the WWE world. There are many out there who love country music and love what we are doing. It’s cool to feel that encouragement and support from guys that we are fans of. So it’s pretty neat.”
