Known for their record-breaking tracks, undeniable energy and all around good vibes, Florida Georgia Line will release DIG YOUR ROOTS August 26 on Big Machine Label Group. The award-winning duo’s highly anticipated third studio album uncovers pieces of their lineage along with an evolved creativity.

Fans clamored to unearth the album’s throwback cover through a #DigYourRoots initiative across FGL’s social platforms to intimately reveal childhood snapshots of both BK and Tyler. Dive into DIG YOUR ROOTS early with five exclusive bundles in limited quantities, which are available online through ‪8/14 via http://smarturl.it/FGLDigYourRoots. There is also an opportunity for fans to upload a picture of “their roots” and be featured on a special mosaic poster. The packages are named after tracks on the album and start at $25.

“Our album cover says it all,” shares Brian Kelley. “Tyler and I are continuing to grow musically and personally. We really wanted this album to reflect who we are and our lives in this moment, but also where we came from.”

Tyler Hubbard adds, “we both started out playing guitar, singing in church and writing songs so we wanted to let fans see our foundation – a deeper side to us. We couldn’t have picked a more fitting title or image for DIG YOUR ROOTS.”

Award-winning producer Joey Moi, who has been at the helm for FGL’s entire discography to date, once again joined the pair for DIG YOUR ROOTS. The duo penned over half of the new music, further depicting an evolution in both of their life journeys. FGL’s soaring single “H.O.L.Y.” sets the tone for the new project and is “the right balance of change and continuity, and the mix of love and spirituality” (Billboard). Written by hit makers busbee, Nate Cyphert and William Larsen, the song has commanded the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the last six weeks and marks their 11th consecutive Top 10 hit as artists at Country radio.

Selling an impressive 1.5 million tickets and landing in the upper reaches of Billboard’s Hot Tours ranking (all genre) in 2015 alone, FGL are taking it to the next level with their headline DIG YOUR ROOTS Tour through the end of 2016.

With each of their BMLG releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES, the proven superstar duo has celebrated numerous bucket-list worthy career milestones, including the history-making RIAA DIAMOND-certification for “Cruise,” solidifying the mega hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies. Their breakout debut also previously overtook the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Music critics and fans alike have embraced FGL’s sound with solid reviews; sold-out headline tours; sales nearing 26 million tracks and over 3.5 million albums worldwide; prestigious honors from AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT.

The dynamic duo has achieved 10 #1 hits collectively as artists and songwriters with their sophomore album ANYTHING GOES fueling five consecutive chart-toppers – PLATINUM “Anything Goes,” “Sippin’ On Fire” and “Sun Daze;” 2X PLATINUM “Dirt” and GOLD “Confession.” 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.
