If you’re hoping to catch Florida Georgia Line appearing live in an intimate setting anytime soon, good luck. Through May, they’re performing at major arenas and amphitheaters as part of Jason Aldean’s Burn It Down tour. They’ll also embark on their own Anything Goes tour in 2015.
However, the duo and their band recently set up shop at the Exit/In, a famed music club near downtown Nashville, to deliver a muscular performance captured for CMT’s Instant Jam series.
Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley launched the surprise pop-up concert for a small group of fans after tweeting information on how to obtain a wristband to the exclusive event. In addition to documenting all the buzz leading up to the show, the one-hour Instant Jam features their performances of their latest platinum-certified single, “Dirt,” along with “Sun Daze” and the title track from their just-released album, Anything Goes. The concert also features fan favorites such as “Stay,” “Round Here,” “This Is How We Roll” and “Cruise.”
The Exit/In, located on Elliston Place, opened in 1971 and has featured numerous country artists, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris and Jerry Reed. However, the venue built its reputation on eclectic bookings that have ranged from Steve Martin, Billy Crystal, Jimmy Buffett, Muddy Waters, Buddy Rich and Freddie Hubbard to early tours by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Allman Brothers Band, Billy Joel, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Talking Heads.
