Tyler Hubbard and Bebe Rexha found inspiration behind their hit singe "Meant To Be" from Haley's advice.

You might say that the inspiration for this song was meant to be….

A wife’s words of wisdom could give her husband just enough inspiration to write a hit single… At least this was the case for Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and co-singer, Bebe Rexha. Their first (and undoubtedly not last) single together, “Meant To Be” has been a success, all thanks to Hubbard’s wife Haley. More here on how the accidental song came to be!

Bebe spoke honestly during a press conference after CMA Fest while reflecting about the day of the artists’ meet-upThe truth was, we were, me and Tyler were both having a hard day that day because he had a session before and then somehow another artist canceled a session with them. I had a session that day and the writer I was working with was in a fight with her boyfriend. She was crying and I was trying to let her be human and not force her to write a song. She ran from the studio, I gave up on the day.”

After both artists experienced a very trying day, they met up for their first hangout only for the day to be flipped upside down.

Rexha went on to say that Tyler’s wife knew he was also having a bad day which lead her to spew the wisdom he needed to get his song-writing wheels moving; “If it’s meant to be it’ll be.” The pop-country sensation has been thriving since its release.

We took this pic the day we wrote Meant To Be. Look at us… we had no idea 😂 But it looks like the dog knew… 😂

Leading Billboard’s “Hot Country Songs” chart for 25 weeks, it’s safe to say that Tyler should include Haley in his future writing sessions.  Watch the official music video for “Meant To Be” and check out the lyrics below.

“Meant To Be” Lyrics

Baby, lay on back and relax, kick your pretty feet up on my dash
No need to go​ nowhere fast, let’s enjoy right here where we at
Who knows where this road is supposed to lead
We got nothing but time
As long as you’re right here next to me, everything’s gonna be alright
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
I don’t mean to be so uptight, but my heart’s been hurt a couple times
By a couple guys that didn’t treat me right
I ain’t gon’ lie, ain’t gonna lie
‘Cause I’m tired of the fake love, show me what you’re made of
Boy, make me believe
But hold up, girl, don’t you know you’re beautiful?
And it’s easy to see
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
So, c’mon ride with me, ride with me
See where this thing goes
So, c’mon ride with me, ride with me
Baby, if it’s meant to be
Maybe we do
Maybe we don’t
Maybe we will
Maybe we won’t
But if it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be (c’mon)
Baby, just let it be (let’s go)
So, won’t you ride with me, ride with me?
See where this thing goes
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, if it’s meant to be
