FGL "Dig Your Roots"
Thursday, June 23, 2016
– Florida Georgia Line will release its third album, "Dig Your Roots," on Aug. 26 on Big Machine.
FGL has enjoyed great success with its first single, "H.O.L.Y.," dominating the songs chart, staying at number one for six weeks. The album cover, released today, shows Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of FGL in black-and-white childhood photos.
"Our album cover says it all," said Brian Kelley. "Tyler and I are continuing to grow musically and personally. We really wanted this album to reflect who we are and our lives in this moment, but also where we came from."
"We both started out playing guitar, singing in church and writing songs so we wanted to let fans see our foundation - a deeper side to us," Hubbard said. "We couldn't have picked a more fitting title or image for 'Dig Your Roots.'"
Joey Moi, who has been at the helm for FGL's entire discography to date, once again produced. The duo penned more than half of the new music.
The duo is on tour through the end of the year.
Previous releases included "Here's to the Good Times" and "Anything Goes."

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. ...
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. ...
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. ...
