Florida Georgia Line proudly announces knockout collaboration – “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys) – as their new single.
Both Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley describe Backstreet Boys as an important early influence. With the iconic ‘90s boy band lending harmony vocals, “God, Your Mama, And Me” is a lush sonic tapestry of unconditional love and spirituality with themes reminiscent of the tender romance found on “H.O.L.Y.” ”
“Gotta take it all the way back to sixth grade. My first concert at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida, was … Backstreet Boys,” admitted Kelley of this full circle moment. “We’ve been digging our roots and influences, and paying homage to what’s gotten us here. When I first heard it, it sounded like a modern-day Backstreet Boys song. We got to know Nick (Carter) and the boys really well and are blessed to have them on this track.”
“Well, this makes a lot of sense why we are a duo,” explained Hubbard. “I was also in the sixth grade and remember going to the record store to buy my first CD … Backstreet Boys!”
Co-written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson, “God, Your Mama, And Me” is the third single from FGL’s 2016 Dig Your Roots album. The project has already produced back-to-back #1s with the 2X PLATINUM-certified “H.O.L.Y.” (which spent an incredible 18 weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart) and GOLD-certified “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw). To date, the duo has notched 12 chart-topping singles.
A new music video featuring Backstreet Boys was recently filmed and will be released soon.
Meanwhile, the first run in 2017 of FGL’s colossal Dig Your Roots Tour is set to get underway January 27 in Tallahassee, Florida. With special guests Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane along for the ride.
More than 25 shows have already been revealed through May 6th. The tour will crisscross North America with stops from Houston, Texas, to Quebec, Canada, and everywhere in between.
