Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line took a moment during tour rehearsals Tuesday (Oct. 1) in Nashville to celebrate their record-breaking success.
Arguably one of the hottest and hardest working groups in country music, the guys say it's been a crazy ride thus far, and they couldn't be more thankful.
"We want to let you know how grateful we are for all your support," said Kelley to a packed house of industry professionals and fans. "You are the reason we are getting these plaques. And country radio ... for loving the music, digging our sound and for changing our lives. It's very humbling, we can promise you that, and we're ready to party our faces off this fall for the tour."
With a Here's to the Good Times deluxe album repackage set for November release, the duo will likely debut new music Thursday (Oct. 3) when they kick off their first headlining tour in Brookings, S.D.
"We're really excited about this," said Hubbard. "We're writing a lot, and it's tough when you only release an album every year and a-half to two years. It makes it really difficult 'cause we love to write songs and want to get as many songs out to you guys as possible.
"We'll have five new songs with some special guests," Hubbard continued. "Nov. 25 can't get here fast enough, and we've been working really hard. We'll leave here heading back into the studio. So thank you again, and we hope you guys like the repackage."
