FGL gets "Smooth"

Monday, July 31, 2017 – Florida Georgia Line premiered a video for "Smooth" today on ETonline.com.

Penned by Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Nicolle Galyon and Jordan Schmidt, "Smooth" is the fourth single from FGL's "Dig Your Roots."

The "Smooth" video marks the directorial debut of FGL member Brian Kelley with co-director TK McKamy. "I'm really excited about this 'Smooth' video; it's my first time co-directing," shared Kelley on set. "It's been really cool to write the treatment and see this thing slowly come to life."

Acting the part of two stranded Old Camp Whiskey workers looking for a good time, Kelley and Tyler Hubbard become a part of the ultimate "Sin City" bachelor party after "Elvis" and "Cat Daddy" (award-winning songwriter Craig Wiseman) offer them a ride-of-a-lifetime in a bubblegum pink Cadillac en route to A Little White Wedding Chapel.

As the newly-tricked out Kelley and Hubbard prepare to be Cat Daddy's "witnesses of love," uncanny lookalikes of the superstar duo ("circa 2012," according to Kelley) make sure the rambunctious crew are on time to the drive-thru. Little do the guys know, Cat Daddy's future wife - Wiseman's real-life wife, KK - is orchestrating their arrival from behind the scenes.

"KK and Craig actually just renewed their vows," Hubbard said. "Cat Daddy surprised her with an awesome custom-made diamond ring. It's a really special moment here on set, so it was really cool to experience that."

Hubbard added, "We've learned a lot of dance moves, had a great time - TK and BK, they crushed it. It's been an amazing experience here in Vegas. It's been a party."

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. ...
