Florida Georgia Line's Kelly gets hitched

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 – Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelly tied the knot on Monday in a secret wedding, People reported.

Kelly, 28, married Brittney Marie Cole, 23, in an outdoor ceremony at Kelley's Nashville home.

"The whole process has been non-traditional," Kelley told PEOPLE. "There was no official proposal or exchanging of rings. We had just fallen in love, and I knew I couldn't live without her. It sounds like a terrible cheesy movie, but when you know, you know."

The couple has dated for seven months, although they have known each other for more than three years. "She definitely caught my eye [back then]," said Kelley. "Brittney's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. I always knew in my heart that if I were single, then I wanted a chance with her. She was my dream girl."

"The first day we hung out, we just knew that it was something real," Kelley said. "I'd never wanted to make someone my wife before. I always want her by my side."

"We just knew," said Cole. "There was this energy that we had never felt before."

The couple married at sunset with 40 guests attending, including fellow Florida Georgia Line member Tyler Hubbard and their band mates.

"Whimsical really comes to mind when I describe it," said Cole, a psychology student at the University of Georgia. "It was just fun and cozy and warm."

CD reviews for Florida Georgia Line

Anything Goes CD review - Anything Goes
The title of Florida Georgia Line's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/ Only one way to do it up right/Everybody goes where eveybody knows/That anything goes on a Friday Night/Get your party right/It's a Friday night. »»»
Here's to the Good Times This is How We Roll CD review - Here's to the Good Times This is How We Roll
Perhaps a few fans didn't get enough of Florida Georgia Line's "Here's to the Good Times," which came out in December 2012. That release contained all five songs of the duo's second EP "It'z Just What We Do" from May 2012. Not to mention the super uber mega-hit Cruise and fellow number ones Get Your Shine On, Round Here and Stay. With "This is How We Roll," Tyler Hubbard (he's the one with the longer hair) and Brian Kelly follow the »»»
Here's to the Good Times
This record can be summed up with five words: "Def Leppard with a banjo." Replace the leather pants and motorcycle boots with scuffed up Romeos and roughed up jeans and you've transformed England's most successful arena rockers into America's new favorite arena twangers. Switch the Flying V's with mandolins, cover British accents with country twang and replace the girls with big hair with girls with big... and you've got yourself a formula for hit records and sold out concerts. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: For McCoury, Grisman, music still matters – One condenser microphone, a music stand, a mandolin, rhythm guitar and more than 100 years of bluegrass experience: that's all David Grisman and Del McCoury need to put on a show. It's quite a show, too. The artists' backstories are well known: McCoury was a logger in Lancaster County, Pa., who came to New York City to see Bill... »»»
Concert Review: Ely wears well – Joe Ely is the prototypical rambler. It comes through in his music and in his life. There are lots of elements in the music about travels, riding the rails, small town scenery and getting away from it. In fact, after playing "I'm Gonna Strangle You Shorty" as the first song of his encore, Ely opined, "The only thing I got out of... »»»

I'm Comin' Over CD review - I'm Comin' Over
Chris Young has enjoyed steady success from his previous four releases, and there's no reason to suggest that "I'm Comin' Over" won't do the same. But that doesn't mean that Young is doing anything all that different from what's au courant. Young's go to has always been his full-sounding, big-bodied voice, and that remains intact here throughout these 11 songs, 9 of which he had a hand in writing. »»»

Mr. Misunderstood CD review - Mr. Misunderstood
When listeners were introduced to Eric Church on his debut, they heard an artist who could balance strong song writing with a bit of a rebellious edge to the music. The surprise release of his latest continues that tradition, being quietly released to his fan club before even being officially announced. The music, written and recorded over a short period of time with an unheard of fast turnaround, has a raw edge that bridges the gap... »»»
