Florida Georgia Line to Collaborate With the Madden Brothers, Possibly Steven Tyler
Florida Georgia Line are known for some cutting-edge collaborations, and they're about to embark on another.
The duo -- whose 'Cruise' remix with rapper Nelly was an enormous smash -- are preparing to go into the studio in Nashville with brothers Benji and Joel Madden from the pop-punk band Good Charlotte.
"We're such big fans of those guys," Tyler Hubbard tells Rolling Stone. "We're going to be writing with them and recording at the Treehouse studio in Nashville. They'll be in town in the next week or two, and we're really excited."
The admiration is mutual.
"We got along with these guys the minute we met," Joel Madden says of FGL. "Then ended up having an awesome hang one night in New York City. We're really excited to go to Nashville, hang and write songs. We think it's really cool our paths crossed and that we get to experience Nashville and music with these guys. We are big fans."
As to what kind of music might result from the pairing, Brian Kelley says, "You'll just have to wait and see."
The pair might also get together with Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler, who recently said they were his favorite country act. "That was a huge honor, because he is a legend," Hubbard says. "We've been texting with Steven about doing something together. Maybe a trip, or a write."
