FGL sells out

Monday, March 27, 2017 – Florida Georgia Line sold out its first ever stadium dates on this year's The Smooth Tour 2017.

The dates include Boston's Fenway Park on July 7, Minneapolis' Target Field on July 29 and Chicago's Wrigley Field on Aug. 12. Following on-sale on Friday, all Boston and Chicago tickets were gone with Minneapolis tickets nearly gone.

"It's an unreal feeling knowing that our dreams of being in stadiums are coming true and that our fans sold these shows out so quickly," said Tyler Hubbard. "Not to mention we get to share a stage with our boys Backstreet Boys, Nelly, and Chris Lane. These shows will make history. We're still so blown away."

Backstreet Boys are featured on FGL's latest single "God, Your Mama, And Me."

The tour kicks off June 2 in Austin.

The pair will sing together at the 52nd ACM Awards on Sunday. The duo has earned five nominations - Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year ("Dig Your Roots"), Single of the Year ("H.O.L.Y."), Vocal Duo of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year ("May We All" featuring Tim McGraw) - and has previously won six ACM Awards.

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.

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. ...
