NASHVILLE, TN (April 2, 2018) — MULTI-PLATINUM superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and the NFL’s Tennessee Titans are expanding the game plan for their April 4 “Tradition Evolved” event in downtown Nashville – adding pre-party and overtime celebrations to the previously announced, FREE headlining FGL concert as the Titans reveal their new 2018 uniforms.
Centered on the world famous honky-tonk crossroads of Broadway and 1st Avenue, the action will now kick off at 4:00P with an anything-goes pre-party at nearby FGL HOUSE – Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley’s vibey, four-story entertainment destination – with Titans alums like Jevon Kearse, Kevin Dyson, and Blaine Bishop signing autographs from 4:30P – 6:00P and the Titans Cheerleaders on hand to get the good times rolling.
The Titans will begin revealing their new uniforms at 7:30P and at 8:00P the hard-hitting duo will launch into a full hour of high-octane game-changers like “This Is How We Roll,” “Round Here,” and “Cruise,” followed by a massive fireworks display. The party will continue back over at FGL HOUSE for a rooftop concert by rising star MORGAN WALLEN (“Up Down” ft. Florida Georgia Line), as fans toast the Titans’ 20th season and groove the night away.

Carrying their red-hot streak of success into 2018, FGL continues to score huge hits while breaking Country music perceptions. After spending 2017 on the road with hip-hop icon Nelly and pop idols Backstreet Boys on THE SMOOTH STADIUM TOUR and releasing standout collaborations with Tim McGraw, Backstreet Boys, The Chainsmokers, Morgan Wallen, and Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso (ft. watt), FGL’s smash hit “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha remains at the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – measured by a combination of radio airplay, sales and streaming data – for the 18th consecutive week (tying their previous record with 4X PLATINUM-certified “H.O.L.Y.”).
The ACM Awards Vocal Duo of the Year nominees will perform “Meant to Be” with Rexha at the upcoming 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards (April 15) broadcast live from Las Vegas on CBS and is currently in the studio working on their follow-up to 2016’s PLATINUM-certified DIG YOUR ROOTS album (BMLG Records). Details of a new headlining tour are coming soon.
