The first country music concert at the 2022 Minnesota State Fair Grandstand appeared to be the last and final “official” concert from Florida Georgia Line. The famous bi-state duo (Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley) took the stage one final time with nearly 12,000 rowdy fans in attendance on Wednesday night.

Opening act Bailey Zimmerman displayed high energy from the moment he appeared the stage. The young, bushy, red-haired artist paired a powder blue, Flawless Whipz personalized baseball jersey and black hat with black ripped-up jeans.

The Louisville, IL. native interacted with the crowd early on including leaning over and sharing the mic with a fan singing in the front row.

Zimmerman’s set included a couple of his hit songs “Fall In Love” and “Rock and A Hard Place.” While Florida Georgia Line will be going on hiatus Bailey Zimmerman is just getting started.

Even though the emotions were high for most of the crowd, it didn’t seem to bother Florida Georgia Line, as they opened their set with a pyro-laced “Round Here” that really had the crowd engaged.

Smoke bursted through pipes at the stage front as they strutted around, singing their version of Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down” as the second song from the set. And right before “I Love My Country” Tyler Hubbard briefly cleared the air stating “This is our last official concert together,” “Let’s see what’s left in the tank.”

Both Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have a major fanbase. And if this is indeed their final show together, there’s no doubt that they’ll both have successful solo careers. But if I’m wrong about their future, I’ve never seen or heard of a band turning down easy money as these guys have made as a duo.
