Florida Georgia Line: From “Cruise” to “H.O.L.Y.”

What a Difference Four Years Makes

Four years ago, most of us had never even heard of Florida Georgia Line. Then “Cruise” was released in the summer 2012, and suddenly, everyone was singing along.

(Even Taylor Swift. Remember when she enthusiastically danced and sang along when the duo performed the song at the 2013 CMT Music Awards?)

Almost overnight, Florida Georgia Line became a fixture of mainstream country music.

The media dubbed them bro-country, and the label stuck. But the band’s last two songs — “Confession” and now “H.O.L.Y.” — are showing a much different side of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.
