Chats with Late-Night Host About THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 & Baby Advice While Sipping on Old Camp Whiskey
NASHVILLE, TN (August 17, 2017) – Riding high after a monumental sold-out stadium trifecta, genre-smashing FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE brought their effortless country swagger to NBC’s LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS while introducing their brand new BMLG Records single, “Smooth,” last night (8/16).
Setting the tone for the easy-breezy “little summertime jam” with its infectious arrangement featuring the down-home swampy sounds of crickets and frogs, FGL got their “dance on” while grooving along with the hooked audience.
Penned by FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, alongside Nicolle Galyon and Jordan Schmidt, “Smooth” is the fourth buzzworthy release from FGL’s chart-topping DIG YOUR ROOTS album. The MULTI-PLATINUM record-breakers are the only Country act to garner a PLATINUM album with three separate PLATINUM songs – “God, Your Mama, And Me,” “May We All,” and “H.O.L.Y.” (3X PLATINUM) since August 2016 – and one of only three to notch PLATINUM for an album released in the last year.
In addition to their feel-good performance, FGL sat down with the late-night host to discuss THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, all while sipping on a chilled Old Camp Peach Pecan Whiskey cocktail. Expectant father Tyler also took the moment to ask Meyers for some personal fatherly advice, to which he responded, “The only thing I’ll say is, for the first year, just never complain about anything you have to do – I feel like it’s 20, 25 years before you can even begin to catch up as far as how much a mother has to do.”
Earlier that evening, FGL debuted “Smooth” on ABC’s CMA FEST: THE MUSICAL EVENT OF THE SUMMER, taped during the 2017 CMA Music Festival at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium in June. They’ll next appear on CMT Crossroads with special guests of THE SMOOTH STADIUM TOUR 2017, Backstreet Boys. Airing August 30 at 10:00P ET, the high-octane acts team up for a must-see event of epic collaborations, as they’ll trade-off on each other’s smash-hit songs including their No. 1 “God, Your Mama, And Me.”
Sponsored by Advance Auto Parts and presented by Old Camp Whiskey, THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 – featuring Nelly and Chris Lane plus Ryan Hurd, Morgan Wallen, and Russell Dickerson on select dates – will trek coast-to-coast through the fall, culminating with a two-night stand at the Verizon Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, Georgia, on October 20 and 21. Live Nation is the official tour promoter.
