More About Florida Georgia Line
Florida Georgia Line (sometimes abbreviated as FGL) is an American country music duo consisting of vocalists Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. Their 2012 debut single “Cruise”, which remains their most popular song, broke two major sales records: it was downloaded over seven million times, making it the first country song ever to receive the Diamond certification, and it became the best-selling digital country song of all time, with 24 weeks at number one, until it was surpassed in July 2017 by Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road”. “Cruise” helped to pioneer a style of country music known as “bro-country”, which incorporates production elements from rock and hip-hop music, and tends to cover subject matter such as partying, drinking, driving trucks and romantic attraction. Much of their subsequent music has been tagged with the “bro-country” label as well.
Florida Georgia Line was formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee and began as a cover band. In December 2011, they signed to the Big Loud Mountain label. Their second EP, It’z Just What We Do, was released in 2012 and charted on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Several months later they signed with Republic Nashville, part of the Big Machine Label Group. They released their second album, Anything Goes on October 14, 2014. Their third album, Dig Your Roots, was released on August 26, 2016.
In July 2016, Florida Georgia Line came under fire when they banned law enforcement from being backstage during their concerts in Wisconsin and Iowa due to police shootings in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and Falcon Heights. The band later asked for a police escort leaving their concert, which was denied by the music festival management team due to security concerns. Following the incident, Brian Kelley called Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth and apologized, calling it a misunderstanding. The duo issued a statement on Twitter that said, “we want you to know that we have nothing but love and respect for the police. We are bummed anyone ever got a different impression.”
