FGL keeps it "Simple"

Friday, June 1, 2018 – Florida Georgia Line is out with a new single, "Simple," the lead song from its upcoming fourth album.

FGL's Tyler Hubbard said the song was written on the tour bus. "We usually find ourselves writing on that every day pre-show and post-show...That was just a special song born out of an idea that I kind of had, just living in a world where things get so complicated, and everybody seems to complicate things," he said. "For us, it's easy for us to keep it simple...Just a little reminder to simplify things every now and then."

"It has a fresh sound," said Brian Kelley. "It's a good time to put it out."

Hubbard and Kelley wrote the song with Michael Hardy and Mark Holman. Joey Moi handled production.

The song features a lot of banjo underneath and an easy going vibe.

FGL also released a music video on Thursday for the song "Colorado," which presumably will be on the new disc also.

The band's last album was "Dig Your Roots" from 2016, which featured the hits "H.O.L.Y.," "May We All" with Tim McGraw, "God, Your Mama and Me" with the Backstreet Boys and "Smooth." The first three songs hit number one, but "Smooth" was the duo's first not to reach the top 10.

CD reviews for Florida Georgia Line

CD review - 6-Pack EP When Florida Georgia Line sing about how much they love their country with "I Love My Country," this lightning rod duo must certainly be aware that not everybody loves 'their' country. 'Their' country doesn't always match the country music of George Strait, after all, who is name-dropped in said song. Strait is just too stylistically straight, for instance, to ever work in the sort of hip-hop cadence that drives "Ain't Worried About It. ...
CD review - Dig Your Roots From the ribbits and Dobro on "Smooth," the lead-off song, one might think that Florida Georgia Line is eschewing its rap rock meets country past for something completely different. While at times that is true - "Smooth" has a swampy beat - Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard haven't veered so far from what brought them to the dance. That is evident with the title track where the thwack of drum programming from long-time producer Joey Moi meets the soulful, somewhat shiny vocals. ...
CD review - Anything Goes The title of Florida Georgia Line's second full length is accurate. For the duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelly, that means girls, girls and more girls plus an ultra dose of partying. That is evident from the refrain of the title track, which, of course, focuses on Friday night activities. "I brought the songs and you brought the party/ Only one way to do it up right/Everybody goes where eveybody knows/That anything goes on a Friday Night/Get your party right/It's a Friday night. ...
