Florida Georgia Line Say Upcoming Album Is Equal Parts Florida and Georgia
The members of new country duo Florida Georgia Line say their upcoming album 'Here's to the Good Times' will capture the spirit of their high-octane live shows, which have been selling out with frequency this fall. In an interview with Taste of Country Nights, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley share that the songs represent where both men come from.
"There's a bonus track on there called 'Country in My Soul' and it kind of sums it up a little bit of Florida and a little bit of Georgia," Hubbard told ToC Nights host Jeremy Robinson.
Hubbard is from Monroe, Ga. while Kelley is from Ormond Beach, Fla.
Upcoming CMT on Tour dates with Jake Owen, Love and Theft and FGL are sold out, as expected. The men say they're pleasantly surprised to see headlining gigs -- like a show in Fort Wayne, Ind. on Nov. 28 -- selling out, as well.
"Every time we get to take the stage it's a blessing," Kelley says, "and we don't take that for granted. So we just go up there and act like idiots and sing our butts off and run around and sweat and try to give 110 percent every night."
"We feed off the crowd and the crowd is feeding off of us," Hubbard adds.
'Here's to the Good Times' will be available on Dec. 4. The album features the hit single 'Cruise,' which is approaching No. 1 on the country airplay charts. Hubbard and Kelley are enthusiastic about how they'll celebrate should the single top the charts. They plan to go skydiving.
