ABOUT FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing four consecutive, multi-week No. 1 smashes in the U.S. and Canada with the PLATINUM-certified hits “Stay,” “Get Your Shine On,” “Round Here” and 6X PLATINUM “Cruise,” making them the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving this accolade. Breaking the record for longest No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart, “Cruise” has sold over 6.8 million downloads in the U.S. alone and is the best-selling digital Country single of all time, according to SoundScan. Amassing international appeal, the duo has tallied over 13.6 million tracks sold worldwide from their chart-topping, PLATINUM-certified debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES (Republic Nashville). Produced by Joey Moi, the duo penned over half of the tracks on the project, and the deluxe version includes their latest Top 5, GOLD-certified single “This Is How We Roll” featuring Luke Bryan. In addition to radio, sales and touring success, the hot newcomers have previously taken home ACA, AMA, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards. “FGL” has racked up four nominations – Top Country Artist, Top Country Song (“Cruise” Remix featuring Nelly), Top Country Album (HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES), Top Duo/Group – for the upcoming 2014 Billboard Awards show. The newly-crowned ACM Vocal Duo of the Year – Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) – is the face of this year’s Outnumber Hunger campaign, an initiative from General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America that helps fight hunger in local communities and has helped secure more than 25 million meals to date. Currently on the road as direct support for Jason Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN Tour, the unstoppable duo will turn up the heat in May with their headline run – THIS IS HOW WE ROLL SUMMER SERIES 2014 – featuring special guest Nelly and opening act Chris Lane. In partnership with Sixthman Ltd., the talented twosome have announced the first ever “This is How We Cruise” music festival at sea aboard the Norwegian Pearl from Nov. 8-12.
