Tyler Hubbard has only released four solo singles so far. His solo career started in 2022 when he released his EP Dancin In The Country. Since then, he has scored two number-one songs, “5 Foot 9,” his debut solo single, and the smash “Dancin’ In The Country.”
“Dancin’ in The Country” was a song Tyler co-wrote with Keith Urban. At the number-one party in downtown Nashville last June (6/13), Keith joined Tyler and talked with us about their first writing together before the party started.
Keith told us about writing the song with Hubbard, “It was natural because we were gonna be out touring, and it just made sense for Tyler to come out; he was game for it, and it was a great fit.” Tyler adds, “It was. I think that helped us kind of not break the ice, but you know, we were kind of already buddies, but being in a room when you’re writing with somebody for five or six hours, you’re pretty much ultimately as vulnerable as you can be and you become friends pretty quickly.”
Hubbard said he was grateful to Keith for adding him to his headlining tour last year (2022) as his first solo shows came together. He said that they might write together again, “I think that was pretty nice like saying, ‘We get a long, we’re gonna have a blast playing shows together, we’ll probably get creative on the road, we’ll probably have some good times, and why not? I’m available, and let’s do this.’ It worked out really well, and Keith was kind enough to trust me and the band to come out there and figure out how to put on a new show. It was unproven; it was the first time we had ever been on tour.”
As Tyler celebrates his 37th birthday today (1/31), we take a look at three of his solo music videos.
