Special Guest Morgan Wallen Flips Broadway “Up Down” with Superstar Duo
CMT Hot 20 Countdown Takes Viewers Behind-the-Scenes on April 7
NASHVILLE, TN (April 5, 2018) — Proudly sporting the NFL’s Tennessee Titans brand new 2018-2019 jerseys personalized with “Hubbard” and “Kelley” MULTI-PLATINUM duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE were in the zone showing downtown Nashville how they roll last night (4/4) at the corner of Broadway and 1st Avenue.
Hosted in celebration of the upcoming 20th season, star players of past and present united with the Titans Cheerleaders for the anything-goes festivities. “It was about as Nashville as you could get,” claimed ESPN, as a DJ and live Titans band pumped up the honky-tonk-lined street for the global entertainers. Even coach Mike Vrabel joined in on the action as he grabbed a mic to accompany FGL onstage for “Get Your Shine On.”
Palpable energy of the multi-block crowd fueled the first of its kind “Tradition Evolved” party as thousands of fans cheered and sang throughout the night to a range of FGL’s hottest jams from their BMLG Records albums. The dynamic pair mixed in new fan-favorites like their history-making chart-topper “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha – currently sitting at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for the 18th consecutive week (tying 4X PLATINUM-certified “H.O.L.Y.”) – and invited Country rising star MORGAN WALLEN for a standout performance of his latest single, “Up Down” (featuring FGL). And making it a family affair, both Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley sweetly brought out their wives for a piano-driven “H.O.L.Y.” – marking baby Olivia Hubbard’s first concert.
From the pre-party at FGL HOUSE to the after-party back at their four-story entertainment destination – plus the knockout concert complete with pyro and fireworks in between – headlining the event meant a lot to the former Belmont University students who met in Music City. “It’s an honor to be a part of this organization,” Hubbard shared onstage. “It’s an honor to be in the beautiful city of Nashville – our home state of Tennessee right here – hanging out on a Wednesday night.”
On Saturday (4/7), CMT Hot 20 Countdown will offer viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the explosive night with backstage interviews and must-see concert footage. Fans can tune in to see host Cody Alan tour Nissan Stadium – home to the Titans – with FGL on CMT. Click here to watch the preview.
Nominated for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year, FGL will next perform 2X PLATINUM-certified “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha at the upcoming 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards live from Las Vegas on April 15 on CBS.
