FGL’s PLATINUM-certified musical evolution, DIG YOUR ROOTS, propelled the history-making duo to #1 on the all-genre Billboard Artist 100 and Country Albums charts. Continuing the epic momentum, the album has delivered three consecutive #1 smashes – the 3X PLATINUM-certified lead single “H.O.L.Y.” [#1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for 18 straight weeks] and PLATINUM-certified hits “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw) and “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys) [13th #1 overall as artists]. Following a landmark DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR that broke attendance records and reached over one million featuring headline-grabbing guest appearances, FGL just wrapped THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 – having played select sold-out stadium dates this summer with special guests Backstreet Boys. Bursting with first-rate reviews of their explosive live shows, MusicRow Magazine praised, “Just in case you’ve forgotten, Florida Georgia Line is one of the hottest country acts alive.” The top-shelf entertainers continue to crush records as the first and only Country act to achieve RIAA’s DIAMOND certification (10 million copies sold) for their breakout smash “Cruise,” which is the best-selling digital country single of all time (SoundScan). Since their breakout in 2012, FGL has earned prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards. Their previous BMLG Records releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales surpassing 30 million tracks and more than 4.2 million albums worldwide. FGL is spreading good vibes to sports fans each week during the 2017 NFL season as they’re featured alongside Hank Williams Jr. and Jason Derulo in “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” during Monday Night Football on ESPN. Their genre-smashing collaborations also include teaming up with The Chainsmokers for “Last Day Alive” (MEMORIES…DO NOT OPEN), Bebe Rexha’s “Meant to Be” on her recent EP All Your Fault: Pt. 2, and Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso’s latest single “Let Me Go” (featuring watt). Fueled by fresh inspiration and keen entrepreneurial spirit, they’ve launched publishing company Tree Vibez Music and their own emoji app, FGLmoji. Following the introduction of their Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey, their premiere restaurant and entertainment destination FGL HOUSE, a four-story attraction with the largest “Cruise” rooftop Nashville has to offer, is now open. http://floridageorgialine.com/
