Nashville, TN (May 7, 2013) – Their aptly-titled Republic Nashville debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, has clearly become a reality for Florida Georgia Line,
who garnered their second consecutive #1 smash in the US and Canada.
The Gold-certified “Get Your Shine On” topped three charts – Billboard
Country Chart, Mediabase Canada Country Airplay Chart and BDS Canada
Country Airplay Chart – this week.
Their multi-week #1 debut single, “Cruise” has most recently garnered FGL a trifecta of 2013 CMT Music Awards nominations for Video of the Year; Duo Video of the Year
and Breakthrough Video of the Year
. Fan voting on CMT.com
runs through June 2 at midnight ET. The awards show will air LIVE from
the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on June 5 at 8P ET/PT on CMT and
Garnering buzz among fans, media and
several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban
and Ed Sheeran – the breakout duo has skyrocketed since releasing
“Cruise” and the remix featuring Nelly, which has sold a combined total
of nearly 3 million downloads. The GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist and FGL will perform the collaboration on May 19 during the CBS special – ACM PRESENTS: Tim McGraw’s Superstar Summer Night. The hot newcomers also have a Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Country Song (“Cruise”) and will present on the televised show, which airs May 19 on ABC at 8P ET/7P CT live from Las Vegas.
The ACM New Artist of the Year
and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year

out with Luke Bryan’s “DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR” on May 17. This Spring,
they will be featured on millions of General Mills’ products as part of Outnumber Hunger
