New Year’s Rockin’ Eve will air beginning at 8PM EST on December 31.
I’m a very visual person when it comes to things like New Year’s Resolutions, so I like to make a vision board. On it, there’s a – it’s like a collage of a lot of things…the simple things like get more sleep, drink more water, eat healthier. Then there’s spend more time with the people that I love. Travel on my own time and really sort of take in where I am in the world. Where I get to work I think, but [also] really take time for myself…and, I don’t know. This year has a lot in store with the music, so I’m excited for that too. There’s some resolutions on that list as well.
Florida Georgia Line
Tyler Hubbard: The only resolution that BK and I have made in the last few years is to not have any New Year’s Resolutions. We just kind of live.
Brian Kelley: Cause we’ll break ’em!
Tyler: Yeah, that too. But that’s our resolution, and you know what, we’ve stuck to that. So…pretty proud of ourselves!
Usually, I plan a New Year’s resolution that I don’t follow through with. I’m terrible at planning things, but I’m extremely spontaneous, so I feel like that’s not a good mix. But, this year, my New Year’s Resolution…honestly, I’ve got to chop off a couple pounds…I’ve been gaining a little bit of weight. So, I’m going to hit the gym, but it’s only going to be for like the first week.
My New Year’s Resolution is just to level-up. To keep going harder every single year. I’m grateful for…everything 2017, 2016 and 2015 brought me, and the position that it’s put me in. So in 2018, I just want to level-up and go even harder.
