Yesterday, Country duo and Mountain Dew artists, Florida Georgia Line, played a super exclusive set in Nashville to help launch a brand new beverage with deep country roots: Mtn Dew DEWshine.
The secret show was super intimate with only about 150 fans attending. Mtn Dew was able to get fans there through a social media contest, and surprise and delight for consumers in Nashville via the DEWshine sampling tour that’s currently going on up and down the Dixie Highway.
Earlier this year, DEW and FGL announced their official partnership to celebrate both side’s southern roots! It’s in the backwoods of Tennessee that a few rebels back in the 1940s created and poured the very first batch of Mountain Dew into glass bottles, which sparked today’s creation of Mtn Dew DEWshine – a clear-citrus DEW inspired by the brand’s mountain roots.
Florida Georgia Line made quite the impression on Tuesday (4/7) during a candid chat with CBS’ The Talk hosts — Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood and special guest Kelly Osbourne – about touring, ACM nominations and Tyler’s wedding plans. FGL closed out their appearance with an explosive performance of their GOLD-certified #1 smash “Sun Daze.”
Wednesday night, the superstar duo appeared on FOX’s American Idol mentoring the contestants alongside their label head Scott Borchetta and performing their scorching Top 15-and-rising single “Sippin’ On Fire” for the first time on television. “Sippin’ On Fire” is the third single from FGL’s chart-topping, GOLD-certified sophomore album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville) and follows the back-to-back #1 hits “Sun Daze” and “Dirt.”
In case you missed it, watch here:
The talented pair scored four Billboard Music Awards nominations earlier this week for Top Duo/Group, Top Country Artist and two for Top Country Song with “This Is How We Roll” featuring Luke Bryan and “Dirt.”
