After nine years together, the guys of Florida Georgia Line have parted ways with their longtime management team, All Access reports.

The split is amicable, Florida Georgia Line and Big Loud’s Seth England and Kevin “Chief” Zaruk, said.

“It has been an incredible journey with our Big Loud family and we are so thankful for the last nine years,” shared Hubbard and Kelley in a joint statement obtained by All Access. “Together we’ve grown more than we could have ever imagined due to what we all bring to the table. As we continue to evolve, so do our needs and our team. Although bittersweet, we and Big Loud are excited to support and encourage each other as we enter the next chapter of our careers, and welcome a new family into our world with open arms. We will continue to dream big and push ourselves to be the best we can be in all facets of life. We are just getting started.”

Big Loud’s England, Zaruk, Craig Wiseman and Joey Moi echoed FGL’s sentiment in their joint statement saying, “We can’t say enough how much love we have for both BK and T-Hubb. We have achieved more in nine years than any of us could have ever dreamed. We’re really proud of almost a decade full of record-breaking success with the two young kids we met in 2011. Today we find a safe place to unwind our business relationship in order to preserve the lifelong friendships and memories we have made together. Good luck to BK and T-Hubb in their future endeavors. Big Loud Proud.”

Florida Georgia Line first signed with Big Loud’s publishing group in 2011. Several months later, the duo joined Republic Nashville (now BMLG Records) and rose to superstardom following the success of songs like “Cruise,” “Get Your Shine On” and “Round Here.”

The duo recently jetted off to the Bahamas to begin work on their fifth studio album. This summer, they will join Kenny Chesney on the stadium dates of his 2020 Chillaxification Tour.
