Florida Georgia Line’s Year Capped by Dig Your Roots

Duo Making Fourth Visit to 2016 CMT Artists of the Year Premiering Thursday

Editor’s note: Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Thomas RhettChris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood are the honorees at the 2016 CMT Artists of the Year special premiering Thursday (Oct. 20) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

They’d had a stellar year prior to August’s release of Dig Your Roots, but Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley say their latest album is a career milestone.

“That’s something we’ve been working on for quite a while, definitely over a year, but just to have it out now just feels great,” Hubbard told CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Katie Cook. “And to be on the Dig Your Roots Tour, our second headline tour has been amazing. The crowds have been amazing. …

“It’s been an amazing year for us. We went on some amazing trips with our wives. We’ve grown a lot in our marriages and in our personal life, as well.”
