Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard haven’t officially come out and asked for tattoo ideas. But I do think that now that their band Florida Georgia Line has had their first No. 1 song with “Cruise,” they should ink something somewhere to celebrate. Kelley told CMT Radio he and Hubbard are definitely in the market for tattoos. “I don’t know if it is going to be the same thing. I know that I am working on a piece. I’m going to get some different life things,” he said. “I definitely want to get the notes to ’Cruise’ somehow fit in there. I think that would be pretty cool. First No. 1 — it’s a special thing.” (If the band keeps up the hits, like with their new one “Get Your Shine On,” they may end up like the three Dixie Chicks , who each have nine chicken feet tattooed on their feet to represent significant milestones.) Anyway, what kind of indelible mark do you think Kelley and Hubbard should ink on their body? “Baby, you a song” is a pretty obvious choice. Or even a pair of KC lights. Or, if their new song hits the top of the charts, a Mason jar full of moonshine.
