FGL collaborates with McGraw, Marley, Backstreet Boys

Friday, July 8, 2016 – Florida Georgia Line upcoming "Dig Your Roots" will include collaborations with Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley. The duo released the track list of the 15-song set today.

The disc drops Aug. 26 on Big Machine. "Collaborating with Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys or Ziggy Marley alone is already super surreal for us, but to have them all on this album is pretty mind-blowing," said Brian Kelley, one-half of the band.

His partner, Tyler Hubbard, said, "These three artists were huge influences on both of us musically; BK's first concert was The Backstreet Boys, and they were my first album."

Producer Joey Moi, who has been at the helm for FGL's entire discography to date, once again joined the pair to produce. The duo penned more than half of the new music. The first single is the hit "H.O.L.Y." Other songs are "May We All," featuring McGraw, the romantic promise of "God, Your Mama, and Me" with The Backstreet Boys and the reggae song "Life Is a Honeymoon" with Marley.

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. ...
