NASHVILLE, TN (April 11, 2018) — BMLG Records’ global entertainers FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE continue to reign Country and Pop radio simultaneously, as they stack multiple upcoming TV performances alongside collaborators BEBE REXHA and MORGAN WALLEN.
The ACM Awards Vocal Duo of the Year nominees and Rexha are slated to perform their 2X PLATINUM-certified hit “Meant to Be” on Sunday (4/15) at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards live from Las Vegas on CBS (8/7c). FGL and Rexha will then jet to Los Angeles offering their fresh track to daytime viewers on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings) on April 18.
Dominating No. 1 for the 19th consecutive week on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, “Meant to Be” has surpassed FGL’s previously held 18-week record with “H.O.L.Y.” They now have three of the five longest-leading No. 1s in chart history. Rocketing to Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100, “Meant to Be” has also amassed over 680 million global streams plus 329.2 million views on its free-and-easy music video.
On April 26, “The Kings of Collaborations” (Mega Country) will hit ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (11:35/10:35c) with Wallen for the national TV introduction of his bouncy Top 15 single “Up Down.” The crew teamed up in Nashville last week (4/4), as FGL headlined a downtown “Tradition Evolved” street party in celebration of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans’ 20th season.
Currently in the studio to follow-up their PLATINUM-certified DIG YOUR ROOTS album (BMLG Records), FGL is keeping this spring-summer hot with a handful of festival stops including making their headlining debut at the annual Stagecoach festival in Indio, CA, on April 27. Details on the superstar duo’s brand new headlining tour are also coming soon.
