LAS VEGAS, NV (April 1, 2016) – Amped with infectious tracks, intense energy and one-of-a-kind vibes, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE has celebrated bucket-list worthy career milestones with each of their Republic Nashville releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES. The scorching duo threw a party earlier this evening at Skyfall Lounge at the Delano in Las Vegas to acknowledge the industry’s support and congratulate their collaborators.
Brian Kelley enthused, “we are blown away and couldn’t be more honored by these milestone moments. Our fans keep us doing what we do and made this possible!”
Setting a pulsating pace throughout ANYTHING GOES, FGL charted four consecutive #1 singles with the GOLD-certified title track, “Sippin’ On Fire” and “Sun Daze” and 2X PLATINUM-certified “Dirt.” The pair’s final single from their sophomore album, “Confession,” is on a similar trajectory ascending into the Top 5 at Country radio this week.
“The past year has been such an incredible ride. Each time we release a single we can only pray that people are going to respond positively and thankfully they did,” graciously added Tyler Hubbard. “We have the best fans in the world, by far!”
RIAA EVP of Communications and Marketing Jonathan Lamy joined the festivities to present FGL with a history-making Diamond-certification for their breakout debut, “Cruise,” solidifying the mega hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies. “Cruise” also previously overtook the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
The reigning ACM Duo of the Year, who continue to prove Superstar status, are in town for the award show on Sunday (4/3) and will perform during the CBS live broadcast beginning at 8/7c.
Music critics and fans alike have embraced FGL’s fresh sound with solid reviews; sold-out headline tours; sales exceeding 24 million tracks worldwide to date; prestigious honors from AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT; as well as leading Forbes “30 Under 30” list in 2014. In addition to racking up a plethora industry awards, the dynamic duo has collaborated across genres with sensations like Nelly and Jason Derulo.
FGL’s highly anticipated third studio album is slated for release later this year, and are sure to preview new music during their headline DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR.
