While Florida Georgia Line may have been talking more about their hometowns than their success, the boldness of “that’s how we do it round here” has proven fitting for the breakout duo. Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) and Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) have once again dominated all four Country Radio charts in the US and Canada with the GOLD-certified “Round Here,” marking their third consecutive, multi-week #1 smash.
With the accomplishment, the hot newcomers join Brooks & Dunn as being the only two artists in Billboard’s history – solo, duo or group – to have their first three singles go #1 for multiple weeks each. FGL exploded to the top of the charts with their MULTI-PLATINUM debut single “Cruise,” which combined with the remix with Nelly has sold over 5.7 million copies in the US alone and and has become the second best-selling Country single ever, according to Soundscan. They solidly followed with the PLATINUM hit “Get Your Shine On.” To date, more than 10 million tracks worldwide have been sold from FGL’s Republic Nashville debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, which has been certified PLATINUM in the US and GOLD in Canada.
Currently, FGL is nominated for their first ever CMA Awards for Vocal Duo; New Artist of the Year; Single of the Year for “Cruise;” and Musical Event of the Year with Nelly for the remix of “Cruise.” The show will air LIVE on November 6 at 8P ET/PT on ABC.
This fall, the ACM and CMT Music Award winners will headline the HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013. For tour dates and more, visit FloridaGeorgiaLine.com.
