The Florida Georgia Line is not going to fade like a number of musical duos. These two men, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, have the drive to thrive (and have driven across the country to this end). Florida Georgia Line tickets in 2013 are going to take the pair to venues to play with Luke Bryan and Thompson Square from July until late October. The band will play a few concert dates with a couple of other young acts and as a standalone headliner too.
All this is being done in the name of promoting Here’s to the Good Times, the Florida Georgia Line’s first full-length studio album. Released in late 2012, this album seemed to be out of place given the focus on youthful summer fun. Still, the album was released with plenty of lead time for the first single “Cruise” to become a multiplatinum hit and to be remixed with Nelly. The song also managed to capture a couple of CMT Music Awards, one for Duo Video of the Year and the second for Breakthrough Video of the Year. “Get Your Shine On” has followed this with a platinum performance and soon “Round Here” may join the other two as certified hits.
The Florida Georgia Line, the musical duo Of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, is the kind of country group that shines during the summer. They combine up tempo instrumentation with lyrics about young love and partying in a small town.
This would have never happened had a friend not introduced them at Belmont University in Nashville. The two forged a friendship and a musical relationship, choosing to adopt their home states and the dividing line (Hubbard is from Georgia and Kelley is from Florida) when coming up with a name. All this has worked out quite well for the group and today Florida Georgia Line tickets are available for summer tours and the albums and singles are selling well all while becoming hits on the charts.
Before all this tangible success, the two had to catch the eye of a Nashville record executive. They went to work on two EPs, Anything Like Me and It’z Just What We Do. These 11 tracks were enough to entice Republic Nashville to sign the two.
With this support, Florida Georgia Line has released one album so far. The album, Here’s to the Good Times, was recorded with the help of producer Joey Moi and released in the December 2012. It has been celebrated as an exciting addition to the spectrum of contemporary country albums. It is a recording with songs all about summer nights of drinking, days spent joyriding on dirt back roads, and the pursuit the potentially brief summer loves with girls in bikinis (basically everything in “Cruise”).
Most critics seem to agree that the collaboration of Hubbard and Kelley is an exciting one, one with the potential to become one of the biggest duos in the genre. These two young artists have focused on the kind of fun and enthralling sound, but they are certain to add some emotional depth and to embrace different, more nuanced styles of country music. In the meantime, fans will have the chance to enjoy a raucous good time with Florida Georgia Line tickets while the group tours and proves itself to thousands across the nation.
