Over the past year, Florida Georgia Line has cherished the good times seeing their quadruple platinum debut single “Cruise” dominate Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart at No. 1 for 19 straight weeks, the longest stretch for any song in the past 50 years, and their aptly titled, GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES top the Billboard Country Albums Chart. The breakout duo has taken home ACM and CMT awards and scored opening slots for Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR and Luke Bryan’s DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR. This fall, the buzz worthy newcomers will celebrate with their fans nationwide on their first headline run -- HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013.
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada with the platinum-certified “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring Nelly, has sold nearly 5 million downloads. The record–breaking duo, comprised of Tyler Hubbard, from Monroe, Ga., and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Fla., is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winner’s current single “Round Here” is Top 20-and-rising at Country radio.
Garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran – the hot newcomers most recently scored two CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as a Teen Choice Awards nomination for Choice Country Group.
