Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line are following the lead set by Dierks Bentley, who committed $1,000 to each of the 90 hourly employees at his Whiskey Row restaurant in downtown Nashville on March 17.
Tyler and Brian have committed $1,000 to each of the 117 employees at their FGL House restaurant in downtown Nashville.
Tyler and Brian made the announcement via Twitter on March 17, stating: “@FGLHouse would be nothing without our amazing staff. We’re so thankful for all 117 of you and we hope this helps out while the bar and restaurant is closed. We’ve been blessed by y’all and we are excited to follow@DierksBentley lead here and #giveback. Much love and gratitude.”
On March 15, 2020, at 2:45 p.m., Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced the closure of bars throughout Davidson Country—including downtown’s famed Lower Broadway district—in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
FGL’s four-story attraction at 122 3rd Ave South features multiple bars, the largest “Cruise” rooftop in Nashville and a basement-level lounge with a baby grand piano. The menu features fried oysters, chicken lollipops, horseradish salmon, burgers and salads, as well as craft beers and signature cocktails made with FGL’s Old Camp Whiskey.
