FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE SOARS AS “H.O.L.Y.” TOPS BOTH COUNTRY RADIO AIRPLAY CHARTS
#1 Lead Single + Successful Sold-Out Headline Tour Dates Cultivate DIG YOUR ROOTS, Out August 26
Nashville, TN (July 25, 2016) – History-making duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE
is once again on top as “H.O.L.Y.” takes the #1 spot on both Billboard
Country Airplay and Mediabase charts this week. The lead single from DIG YOUR ROOTS
– arriving August 26 on Big Machine Label Group – has also dominated
the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 11 weeks. “H.O.L.Y.” marks
FGL’s eleventh #1 collectively as artists and songwriters.
“From the college guys we were when ‘Cruise’ came out to starting our
families, it’s been really cool to see our fans and radio embrace the
music BK and I make,” said Tyler Hubbard. "'H.O.L.Y.’ is personally so
special to us … thank you to everyone who took it to the top!”
FGL continues to unveil new phases musically across the 15 genre-defying
tracks on their third studio album, giving listeners a richer look into
their lives and influences. The pair penned over half of the songs and
recorded with veteran producer Joey Moi, who stands firm at the helm of
FGL’s sound. The award-winning duo collaborated with Superstar artists
Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley on the forthcoming
project. Fans who pre-order DIG YOUR ROOTS via http://smarturl.it/DigYourRoots will receive an immediate download of "Smooth" and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw).
“Tyler and I have been beyond blessed to have so much support throughout
our career and are continually grateful when these moments happen,”
adds Brian Kelley. “Here’s to digging a little deeper and soaring even
higher with our fans every night out on the road!”
Notching over 1.5 million tickets sold in 2015 alone, FGL continues the
successful streak with heavily sold-out crowds during their headline DIG
YOUR ROOTS TOUR, further “cementing FGL as a bona fide headliner after
just two albums" (Oakland Press). Throughout the end of 2016, The Cadillac Three, Cole Swindell and Kane Brown will join the high-octane pair.
Since breaking out in 2012 with the mega smash “Cruise,” FGL have
solidified their place as one of the elite acts in Country music,
earning prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards,
Billboard Music Awards and CMT. Their previous releases – 2X PLATINUM
debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES
– have attributed to sales nearing 26 million tracks, over 3.5 million
albums worldwide and RIAA DIAMOND-certification for “Cruise,”
solidifying the hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of
over 10 million copies. Their massive debut also overtook the record for
longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
