It’s not hard to find out what our favorite country music stars are up to. Really, all we have to do is look at their social media pages and, bam! Their current status is instantly updated.

But, if you’re a Florida Georgia Line fan, that’s no longer the case.

On July 20, Tyler Hubbard, one half of the country duo, logged onto Instagram to let fans know that he made one big decision. He decided to part ways with social media.

Tyler wrote, “I’ve done a lot of thinking and praying about this for the last few days and I think it’s time for me to take a break from social media indefinitely. I spend way too much of my valuable time worrying about my next post or how many comments or likes I got. Honestly it’s a little ridiculous and I’m ready to get back to focusing all my attention on the things that really matter.”

I've done a lot of thinking and praying about this for the last few days and I think it's time for me to take a break from social media indefinitely. I spend way to much of my valuable time worrying about my next post or how many comments or likes I got. Honestly it's a little ridiculous and I'm ready to get back to focusing all my attention on the things that really matter. I love my fans and promise I'm not gone forever but I'm taking some time to refocus on my relationships, the Lord, my marriage, my family, and my music. Maybe I'll even learn a new instrument instead of learning how to snap chat. I want to make sure that I'm living my life to the fullest and not worrying about making a highlight reel for the world to talk about or comparing my life to other peoples highlight reels. That's not what life is about. #backtothebasics
