Celebrating her birthday weekend during husband Tyler’s tour stop in Chicago on Sept. 17, Hayley Hubbard only had one wish.
She wanted someone to sing a song to her.
But instead of hearing Tyler and Florida Georgia Line bandmate Brian Kelley sing “H.O.L.Y,” Hayley was hoping to stand back and listen to the voices of the 25,000 people who filled Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre sing that song.
And boy did they.
“I asked Hayley what she wanted for her birthday, and all she wanted tonight was to hear 25,000 people singing this song,” Tyler said, as he sat down at the piano to begin the song.
As the song wound to a close, the fans took over, and the sound was deafening. And the smile on Tyler’s face? Well, that was downright endearing.
“We both always say that we don’t know where we would be without our wives,” Tyler told the crowd. “We love them so much.”
And this moment, well, we could not have loved it more.
“Our fans embraced ‘H.O.L.Y.’ in such a remarkable way earlier this year,” Brian said in a recent press release about the success of the song, which also started that it has “dominated the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 18 weeks.”
