Florida Georgia Line shares story behind ‘While He’s Still Around’ from album ‘Dig Your Roots.’
When explaining where this song originally came from, Tyler Hubbard explains:
“While he’s still around is another real song that we wrote a long time ago.
it’s kind of continued to be written over the years, it’s finally gotten to the point to be released to you guys.”
The song comes from Hubbard’s loss of his father, mixed with how close the duo is to Brian’s father.
“It was really special because we got to write after a lost my dad” hubbard states. “Bk’s very close to papa kelley, and it’s just a deep song for us.”
