Florida Georgia Line’s Fascination With a Pop Music Diva

Duo Caught Britney Spears' Show During Recent Visit to Las Vegas

Who would’ve guessed that Florida Georgia Line are Britney Spears fans?

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard
spilled the beans about one of their latest trips to Sin City for the recent Billboard Music Awards. And some of the details delighted me.

While in town to attend awards show, Florida Georgia Line got to enjoy something a lot of artists don’t normally get to do when attending big events in Las Vegas. They actually got to take advantage of a little downtime to attend one of the famous shows there.

Yep, country’s hottest duo hit up Spears’ residency show at Planet Hollywood and apparently received the tickets and royal treatment from camp Brit-Brit, most notably her sweetheart of a dad, Jamie Spears.

“Her dad was running us around, taking care of us,” Kelley told Billboard. “The show was amazing. Incredible on all levels of production and entertainment, man. I think she crossed off every little emotion and thing you could do. It was a great night.”

Well, she ain’t called the Princess of Pop for nothin’, boys.

Their favorite song of the night? Her debut single, “Baby One More Time.”

“That’s a classic oldie, man,” Hubbard said. “That was pretty sick.”

We knew the guys were big pop and hip-hop fans. Having enjoyed success with Nelly, could Spears be next on their wish list of collaborations?

Between their fandom and her Southern roots, never say never.
