Nashville, TN (June 21, 2013) – Florida Georgia Line is on fire this week with their debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES topping Billboard’s
Top Country Albums Chart for the first time and moving up to the #5
spot on the Top 200 Chart. The feat catapults the breakout duo into an
elite bracket as one of just three artists (Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda
Party” in 2011 and Taylor Swift’s self-titled in 2007) in the past six
years, to reach the top after their initial chart debut. Named as
“Country’s party album of the year” by USA Today, the Republic
Nashville project increased an impressive 20% in sales this week and has
already garnered GOLD certifications in both the U.S. and Canada.
The hot duo
– comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond
Beach, Florida) – learned of the great news following their live
performance with Nelly of the smash “Cruise” remix on NBC’s The Voice season finale Tuesday night (6/18). Watch the electrifying performance here: http://www.nbc.com/the-voice/video/florida-georgia-line-and-nelly-cruise/n38159/.
FGL has skyrocketed
since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada
with the PLATINUM “Get Your Shine On” and 4X PLATINUM-certified
“Cruise,” which combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts)
remix, has sold over four million downloads. Their follow-up single
“Round Here” is already Top 30-and-rising at Country radio.
Garnering buzz among fans, media and
several Superstars across genres – including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban
and Ed Sheeran – the hot newcomers most recently scored two CMT Music
Awards for Duo Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year as well as a Teen Choice Awards nomination for Choice Country Group.
Fans ages 13-19 can vote once a day via teenchoiceawards.com, with
results airing August 11 at 8P ET on FOX. VEVO has also selected FGL for
the coveted LIFT program, offering exclusive content across the world’s
leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform.
The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winners are currently touring with Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR and Luke Bryan’s DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR.
