DIAMOND-selling superstar and Ormond Beach, FL native Brian Kelley is today (11/18) delivering a tribute to his home state titled “Florida Strong” via Big Machine Records. Donating a 100% of the royalties equally to the American Red Cross and Florida Disaster Fund to support hurricane relief wherever it is needed (through 12/31/22), proceeds will further help people prepare for, respond to, and recover from these disasters – including Hurricanes Ian and Nicole and other storms that may impact this year.

“My parents raised me knowing that everyone in my home state of Florida is a neighbor, and we help when and however we can. I was sitting at my kitchen table a couple days after Hurricane Ian hit, praying for the recovery and wanting to help. Next thing I knew, ‘Florida Strong’ just poured out of me,” shares Kelley. “All proceeds through the end of the year from this song are going to the American Red Cross and Florida Disaster Fund. Let’s help build back Florida to the place we all know and love! I’ll be a Florida boy forever, and we are ‘Florida Strong.’”  

Kelley offers a supportive message of resilience in “Florida Strong,” vowing to pick up the pieces after Hurricane Ian’s destructive fury. Written solo and produced by Kelley alongside Katlin Owen with a comforting Country sound, it’s deeply anchored in tradition and tenderness as the hitmaker first surveys the damage done, then turns toward The Sunshine State’s courage and community spirit: “‘Cause we love where we live / And we ain’t goin’ at it alone / We got each others’ backs / We are Florida strong.” Mandolin, steel guitar, and steady drums roll in like emotional waves, helping Kelley present Florida toughness as its own force of nature.
