Florida Georgia Line cruises on

Thursday, August 15, 2013 – The streak continues for Florida Georgia Line. Once again, the duo is atop the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart with Cruise. This marks the 24th week for FGL, a record. FGL also was first on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for the week ending Aug. 24 with "Here's to the Good Times." The top selling disc in the U.S. was The Civil Wars' self-titled disc, but that was not on the country chart.

On the songs chart, Hunter Hayes is again second with I Want Crazy. Luke Bryan was third with Crash My Party. Randy Houser stood in fourth with Runnin' Outta Moonlight, one ahead of Brett Eldredge's Don't Ya.

Jason Aldean was at 11, up 3, with Night Train. Blake Shelton jumped from 28 to 21 with Mine Would Be You.

On the album chart, Eldredge debuted in second with "Bring You Back." Shelton was third with "Based on a True Story..." Hayes was fourth with his self-titled debut. Bryan was at five with "tailgates & tanlines," up 5. His new disc will likely lead the country chart next week.

Bryan's "Spring Break...Here to Party" was up six to 13. Clint Black debuted at 30 with "When I Said I Do," mainly containing his greatest hits. "NOW That's What I Call Country: Volume 5" jumped from 56 to 40.

On the Bluegrass Albums chart, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell hold down the top spot with "Love Has Come For You." Michael Martin Murphey was second with "Red River Drifter," one ahead of "Best of Bluegrass: Collector's Edition" from Steve Ivey. Old Crow Medicine Show was fourth with "Carry Me Back" and Steven Curtis Chapman fifth with "Deep Roots."

On the overall top 200 chart, FGL was10th , Eldredge 11th, Shelton 19th, Hayes 27th and Bryan 33rd.

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. ...
