Known for their record-breaking tracks, undeniable energy and all around good vibes, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE came out of nowhere in 2012 to become the biggest country group of the new decade. The vehicle of their success was "Cruise," a slick, shimmering ode to the wide-open road that became an unkillable crossover hit in 2013 and, eventually, the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies.
Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard -- the former hails from Ormond Beach, Florida, the latter Monroe, Georgia, hence their band name -- met as students at Nashville's Belmont University, and began writing songs together between classes. Soon, they were playing local clubs, quickly building a fan following on the Southeast club circuit and developing a sharp contemporary country sound.
Since then, the dynamic duo has celebrated numerous bucket-list worthy career milestones including 10 #1 hits collectively as artists and songwriters with their sophomore album ANYTHING GOES fueling five consecutive chart-toppers – PLATINUM “Anything Goes,” “Sippin’ On Fire” and “Sun Daze;” 2X PLATINUM “Dirt” and GOLD “Confession.” FGL has skyrocketed to stardom becoming the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving four back-to-back, multi-week #1 singles.
Their third studio album is DIG YOUR ROOTS. "Tyler and I are continuing to grow musically and personally. We really wanted this album to reflect who we are and our lives in this moment, but also where we came from.” Tyler Hubbard adds, “We both started out playing guitar, singing in church and writing songs so we wanted to let fans see our foundation – a deeper side to us.”
