NASHVILLE, TN – (July 15, 2013) – Over the past year, Florida Georgia Line has cherished the good times seeing their QUADRUPLE PLATINUM debut single “Cruise” dominate Billboard’s
Hot Country Songs Chart at #1 for 19 straight weeks, the longest
stretch for any song in the past 50 years and their aptly titled,
GOLD-certified Republic Nashville debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES top the Billboard
Country Albums Chart. The breakout duo has taken home ACM and CMT
awards and scored opening slots for Taylor Swift’s THE RED TOUR and Luke
Bryan’s DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR. This fall the buzzworthy newcomers will
celebrate with their fans nationwide on their first headline run — HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR 2013.
Kicking off October 3 in Brookings, SD, the HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES TOUR
will go through December. The 32-city tour features openers Colt Ford,
Tyler Farr (select dates) and Dallas Smith (select dates). Already
becoming a hot ticket, the first show to go on sale – 10/19 at Whitaker
Bank Ballpark in Lexington, KY – sold out in a record-breaking 23
minutes with 10,718 tickets.
“We can’t wait to give our fans what
they have been asking for all year … our own headline tour,” says Tyler
Hubbard. “It is unreal and the first night of the tour can’t get here
fast enough!”
Brian Kelley shares, “This is another
dream of ours coming true. I couldn’t be more excited and more proud of
the tour. Having Colt, Dallas and Tyler along with us is going to make
for a party!”
Florida Georgia Line has skyrocketed
since releasing back-to-back, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada
with the PLATINUM-certified “Get Your Shine On” and “Cruise,” which
combined with the Top 10-and-climbing (Top 40 Charts) remix featuring
Nelly, has sold nearly 5 million downloads. The record–breaking duo,
comprised of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) and Brian Kelley (Ormond
Beach, Florida), is the first in 21 years to top the Country airplay
charts with their first two singles, according to Billboard. The ACM New Artist of the Year and New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winner’s current single “Round Here” is Top 20-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,
