Florida Georgia Line, ‘Cruise’ – Lyrics Uncovered
Country music fans have been eating up the debut single from Florida Georgia Line, 'Cruise,' thanks to its catchy lyrics and infectious melody. It doesn't hurt that the duo's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are single and good looking, either.
"'Cruise' came out of another writing session in the middle of another song," Kelley tells Taste of Country of the day they wrote the song with their producer, Joey Moi, as well as Chase Rice and Jesse Rice. "I think we kind of have to thank the songwriting gods for that one."
"The first line of the chorus just kind of popped out of nowhere, really," adds Hubbard.
"Baby, you a song / You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise / Down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle / Every little farm town with you / In this brand new Chevy with a lift kit / It’d look a hell of a lot better with you up in it / So baby you a song / You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise," Florida Georgia Line wrote in the 'Cruise' chorus lyrics.
"We love back-roading and rolling down our windows and listening to music," Kelley admits with a grin. "I don’t think there’s anything better than that."
"She was sippin’ on Southern and singin’ Marshall Tucker / We were falling in love in the sweet heart of summer / She hopped right up into the cab of my truck and said / 'Fire it up, let’s go get this thing stuck,'" the song continues.
"We knew there was something cool about it," notes Kelley. "I remember we just kind of tweaked it a little bit. Joey did an awesome job on the track, and it sounds huge. We’re really proud of it. It’s just a fun, summer song"
Adds Hubbard, "Hopefully our fans will feel the same. The feedback has been amazing so far. It’s been really good -- nothing but positive! Almost surprisingly overwhelming."
