The festival’s second stage, “Next From Nashville,” will return continuing to showcase emerging country artists.

“Our first year in Vegas really exceeded our expectations,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “We’re definitely using what we learned the first time around and feedback we heard from the fans to change a few things up to make it even better this year. We’re excited for Sin City to go country for the weekend!”

Chris Baldizan, senior vice president of entertainment for MGM Resorts International, said, “Following the success of last year’s event, we are excited to again partner with Live Nation to bring the Route 91 Harvest Festival back to the MGM Resorts Village. This year’s lineup is outstanding and we can’t wait for festival-goers to experience this unique outdoor event on the Las Vegas Strip.”

More than 20,000 fans attended Route 91 Harvest’s inaugural year. The festival received huge critical praise with the Las Vegas Review-Journal heralding the festival as “country’s arrival in Vegas.” Additionally, Rolling Stone Country commented on the festival’s unrivaled setting, as “there were some of Nashville’s finest, belting out their hits with the backdrop of the Luxor pyramid and glimmering Mandalay Bay.”

This year there will be new VIP options available including Neon Lounge VIP passes which will allow festival-goers to enjoy a shaded side stage lounge, upgraded restroom facilities and special access to a cash bar and food concessions.

Florida Georgia Line brought the party last night (2/25) with their sold-out ANYTHING GOES TOUR stop in New York City for their first appearance at the legendary Madison Square Garden. The superstar duo celebrated this bucket list moment with the roaring crowd of 13,000 plus fans as well as openers Thomas Rhett and Frankie Ballard.

The New York Times lauded their trailblazing sound, “Florida Georgia Line – Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard — weren’t any good at the status quo, but it turned out they were positively great at tossing it out.” And, last night’s show was far from status quo with a dynamic set, including hits from their 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, album cuts from their GOLD, chart-topping sophomore album ANYTHING GOES and an entertaining medley infused with Dr. Dre, Garth Brooks, Meghan Trainor and Bruno Mars covers. FGL closed out the night with an explosive performance of their record-breaking, 8X PLATINUM smash “Cruise.”

FGL will head to Europe today (2/26) for the first time with four upcoming shows on the C2C Country to Country festival tour and will continue the ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015 on March 21 in Orange Beach, AL.

On the heels of their latest #1 hit “Sun Daze,” the reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year is already lighting up Country radio with their hot new single “Sippin’ On Fire,” released earlier this week.

FGL has skyrocketed to stardom becoming the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving four back-to-back, multi-week #1 singles; breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and selling over 21 million tracks worldwide of their 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and ANYTHING GOES. In addition to collaborating across genres with sensations like Nelly and Jason Derulo, FGL racked up 13 industry awards throughout 2014, topping four of Billboard’s year-end charts and leading Forbes “30 Under 30” list. Recently, the talented pair earned five ACM Award nominations including their first nod for the prestigious and fan-voted Entertainer of the Year.

Florida Georgia Line Sits on Top with “Sun Daze”

fgl

Florida Georgia Line is getting their “Sun Daze” on this week, taking over Country radio with their sizzling, GOLD-certified smash landing at #1 on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts. Featured on their GOLD, chart-topping sophomore album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville), “Sun Daze” marks the superstar duo’s sixth run atop the charts and follows the buzzed-about PLATINUM #1 hit “Dirt.”

“We are real proud of ‘Sun Daze’ because that song came about so late in the game. It was one of the last ballpark tour dates we did with Nelly, but we were still finishing up the album and inspired to write that day,” shares FGL’s Brian Kelley. “We thought we pretty much had every song we wanted but this one definitely kicked one of the songs off. It shows that right down to the wire you need to keep writing and stay in your creative zone. We knew we had something special.”

“We can’t begin to thank Country radio and our fans enough for all of the support for our music and what we do,” FGL’s Tyler Hubbard adds. “We have been beyond blessed the past few years and know that we wouldn’t be here without you. Can’t wait to see everyone out on the road!”

FGL ignited Billboard’s latest Hot Tours ranking as their ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015 earned the #3 spot, right behind Andre Rieu and Billy Joel, and solidified them as the lead Country act on the list. The award-winning duo kicked off their North American trek with a sold-out show at the Huntington Center in Toledo, OH, on January 15 and boasts total attendance surpassing the 60,000 mark in the first six cities.

The dynamic pair will bring their seize-the-day attitude and raucous party anthems overseas for the first time with four shows on the C2C Country to Country festival tour in Europe this month. In addition to the ANYTHING GOES TOUR stops, fans can catch FGL at several festivals nationwide and select stadium dates on Luke Bryan’s KICK THE DUST UP TOUR.

The reigning ACM and CMA Vocal Duo of the Year recently scored five ACM Award nominations including their first nod for the prestigious and fan-voted Entertainer of the Year for the 50th Annual ACM Awards airing on CBS on April 19th from the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Fans can vote for Entertainer of the Year beginning April 8th at 3:00 PM ET/12noon PT at VoteACM.com through the third hour of the live broadcast.
