NASHVILLE, TN (September 10, 2013) – Florida Georgia Line
is turning up the triple play action this week with “Round Here”
earning their third consecutive #1 smash in both the US and Canada. The
GOLD-certified single topped all four Country radio charts – Mediabase
Country Chart, Billboard Country Chart, Mediabase Canada Country Airplay
Chart and BDS Canada Country Airplay Chart. Amassing international
appeal, the breakout duo recently crossed a new career threshold —
tallying more than 10 million tracks sold worldwide from their debut
album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES (Republic Nashville), which has been certified PLATINUM in the US and GOLD in Canada.
As announced earlier today (9/10), FGL
earned their first ever Country Music Association (CMA) Award
nominations and scored nods in the following four categories — 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 awards show will air LIVE from the
Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on November 6 at 8P ET/PT on ABC.
“Last year we attended the CMA Awards
for the first time and now to be nominated for four awards is an
unbelievable honor,” shares FGL’s Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, GA).
FGL’s Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, FL)
adds, “we are blown away! This is such a testament to our fans, country
radio and our team. We are incredibly thankful and are excited for the
awards night. It is going to be a party!”
The hot newcomers previously garnered
back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada – the 5X
PLATINUM breakout debut single “Cruise,” which combined with the remix
with Nelly has sold over 5.5 million copies in the US alone, and
PLATINUM-certified follow-up “Get Your Shine On.” According to
SoundScan, “Cruise” is the third-best-selling Country digital song ever
and recently broke the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot
Country Songs Chart. The multiple ACM and CMT Music Award winners will
headline the HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013 this fall.
