Florida Georgia Line Nab Single of the Year and More at 2013 ACAs
What a year for duo Florida Georgia Line, huh? They topped it off by snatching up the 2013 American Country Awards prize for Single of the Year with their smash hit 'Cruise.'
Sara Evans and Joe Nichols presented the guitar to Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, who were the winners of a slew of other awards on Dec. 10, including New Artist of the Year, Radio Track of the Year, Music Video by a New Artist, Single by a New Artist and Radio Track by a New Artist.
The duo was up against a talented bunch of country stars and big songs, including Randy Houser's ‘How Country Feels,’ Kip Moore's ‘Beer Money,’ the Band Perry's ‘Better Dig Two’ and Tim McGraw's ‘One of Those Nights.'
As the duo bounded up onstage to accept their gold star award, they seemed deeply grateful -- but not surprised. They just keep on cruising toward wins with 'Cruise!' Kelley took the mic first, saying, "Just want to say it's been an amazing year for Tyler and our families and our band, but what an amazing year for country music!"
He added, "Thank you for letting us be a part of something so special..." Hubbard exclaimed proudly, "Thank you for letting us do what we love!"
Congrats to FGL on their latest win -- may there be many more in 2014!
