Florida Georgia Line Debut ‘Dirt’ on ‘The Tonight Show’ [Watch]
Florida Georgia Line brought a little ‘Dirt’ to Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ on Tuesday night (July 8). This was the very first time the duo played the song on TV.
Before FGL took the stage, Fallon introduced them with some very kind (and true) words. He called them “a massively, massively successful duo,” adding, “We love them. It was just released today and it’s already No. 1 on iTunes.”
The performance of ‘Dirt,’ like the song, was a little subdued compared to what FGL fans are used to seeing from the two. They strummed their guitars on the dimly lit stage in front of a drum kit reading their name. The guys looked the part of country singers in dark denim jeans. Brian Kelley wore a light denim button-down with embellished pockets. Tyler Hubbard opted for a black vest and big belt buckle on the show. They both represented their home states in their guitar straps. Hubbard’s read, “Georgia,” while Kelley’s said “FL” with his initials below it.
Once Hubbard sang the opening lyrics to the song, he seemed to smile at himself out of pride. Kelley’s energy was contagious as he sang the lyrics to the second verse, shaking his head and swaying to the beat. FGL played Fallon’s show with a full band, showing fans their sentimental side and strong vocal talents. The crowd seemed impressed as the guys strummed and hit their last notes.
“That’s what I’m talking about, that’s what I’m talking about right there,” Fallon told the FGL guys, giving them both handshakes. ‘Dirt’ is the first single off the band’s forthcoming album, which is set to drop this Fall.
