FGL says it's "Country"
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
– Florida Georgia Line will release its fourth album, "Can't Say I Ain't Country" on Feb. 15 on Big Machine.
The track listing and cover artwork will be revealed soon.
"We're excited. In February, we're releasing our fourth album," FGL's Tyler Hubbard said. "I think Feb. 15 is the official date, so we're really excited. We've been working on that album for over a year now, so BK and I are definitely ready."
Band mate Brian Kelley said, "You can say a lot of things. You can call somebody a lot of different names and have a lot of different opinions, but at the end of the day, when it comes to me and Tyler, you can't say we ain't country."
Mayor Carolyn Goodman will declare today "Florida Georgia Line Day" in Las Vegas at City Hall. The duo's residency at the Hollywood Resort & Casino ends tonight with Canaan Smith and Mason Ramsey opening.

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/
