They are calling it the Florida Georgia Line This Is How We Cruise music festival at sea. But how could they not have named it the "Cruise" Cruise? I mean, come on. It's so obvious.
Think about it. Tyler Hubbard recently told Radio.com why the band's massive breakout debut hit song from 2012 resonates with fans.
"I keep hearing people say, 'Every time we hear it, it really does make me want to roll my windows down and cruise,'" he said. "Even if you're not totally into country music, it's just a feel-good song that can (work) for anybody. Everybody seems to be drawn to it. The hooky-ness of it, the catchiness of it, everybody calls it an earworm that they can't get out of their head. We've just been blessed to be a part of it."
So why didn't they take that hooky-ness and name this cruise after it? We may never know. But what I do know is that no matter what they call it, their fans are going to love every minute of this four-night cruise.
Florida Georgia Line will do two shows, plus a Q&A session for the guests. And according to the ship's website, there will be "dozens of other concerts." Nelly, Thomas Rhett , Colt Ford, the Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith and Chris Lane are set to sail (and sing) while the cruise takes you from Miami to the Bahamas and back.
If you've ever been on a cruise before, you know how they work. You pay per person, and all the meals are included. Booze costs extra, but there's lots and lots of food. This one has cabins for $700 a person (you'd be in a room that is 143 square feet, so roughly the size of the room on the back of a tour bus) all the way up to $3,200 (for a cabin that is almost 800 square feet, which is bigger than my first apartment).
Between now and cruise time in November, you can catch Florida Georgia Line out on the road as headliners and opening shows for Jason Aldean through the end of October.
