ONE MORE THING! Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard took to Instagram after hearing the news of Troy’s death, which personally hit him hard since ten years ago he lost his father in a helicopter accident. “My heart breaks, my heart hurts and I can’t help but go back to ten years ago when I lost my dad in a tragic helicopter crash as well, an experience that me and my whole family witnessed,” he says, urging fans to “lean on the Lord” and “dig into the Bible” to help.
