Florida Georgia Line Plan Massive Video Premier of “May We All” and Big ‘Dig Your Roots’ Release Week

fgl

With the release of their highly anticipated DIG YOUR ROOTS album just around the corner, Florida Georgia Line are gearing up for the world premiere of their new “May We All” music video, a one-of-a-kind mini-movie for the project’s second single with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage shot in 360° virtual reality technology.

Premiering exclusively on the FGL YouTube channel Monday, August 29th at 8 p.m. ET, the video is unlike anything Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have done before, with the duo acting out roles as a pair of ultra-competitive, race-car driving brothers and proudly sharing the screen with successful actor and country icon Tim McGraw (who also sings on the track). Leading up to the premiere, fans can get a sneak peek at all the high-speed action with unique behind-the-scenes virtual reality content going live on the FGL YouTube channel tomorrow (August 24).

“Working with Tim on the video was absolutely incredible,” shares Kelley. “Watching him show up pretty much in character the whole time, ready as can be and giving advice – his spirit is amazing and we took notes all day. It is really crazy because we grew up on Tim and having him on the song feels like his stamp of approval.”

Hubbard adds, “We always like to mix things up and push ourselves to do new things. Going full speed ahead with a video that is a mini-movie with more acting was a challenging and fun ride. We can’t wait for the world to see it!”

Directed by award-winning filmmaker TK McKamy, the video was shot over two days at Tennessee National Raceway in Hohenwald, Tenn., and features a gripping storyline filled with dirt-racing action, emotional conflict and a hair-raising cinematic climax, all backed by the groundbreaking duo’s new single, “May We All” – a swaying, shoulder-to-shoulder call for unity in a turbulent time.

To give fans a more in-depth, up-close-and-personal experience, FGL has teamed with YouTube to produce the behind-the-scenes content in 360° virtual reality technology. With the simple Google Cardboard viewer and a smartphone, viewers are transported into an immersive, 360° 3D environment, experiencing FGL like never before. Plus, a special Live From the Set package will be revealed only on the FGL YouTube channel Tuesday (August 30) to show exactly how the incredible project came together. This content series is part of YouTube’s ongoing initiative to support artists and their musical vision with customized campaigns including creative production.

“Virtual reality is more than just an amazing piece of technology – it allows us to make deep connections with people, places and stories that can change the way we experience the world – and there’s no better place for artists to connect with fans than on YouTube,” says Jamie Byrne, Director, YouTube Creators. “We are excited to support the world premiere of Florida Georgia Line’s music video with exclusive 360° virtual reality content, giving fans an exciting new way to experience their favorite duo.”

Featuring “May We All” and the 16-week No. 1 single “H.O.L.Y.,” FGL’s third album Dig Your Roots will be released on Friday, August 26th. Leading up to the album drop, the duo will perform “H.O.L.Y.” on ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon today, followed by an interview appearance during the fourth hour of NBC’s Today with Kathy Lee & Hoda tomorrow. Dig Your Roots also includes special collaborations with the Backstreet Boys and reggae star Ziggy Marley.

Florida Georgia Line Shatters Attendance Record in Wyoming

Superstar Country duo Florida Georgia Line continued their history-making streak on Saturday (7/30), shattering the Cheyenne Frontier Days attendance record during the legendary Western festival’s grand finale show.

Packing an astounding 25,011 fans into the Cheyenne Frontier Days Arena, the hit-making team of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley topped a mark previously set by Jason Aldean, more evidence that FGL has arrived as one of the genre’s premiere touring acts.

“Saturday night’s show in Cheyenne was truly amazing, setting the new record for concert attendance,” said Bob Romeo, President of Romeo Entertainment Group. “It was incredible to see how much Florida Georgia Line has grown into a polished, undeniable headline act in just a few short years. Everything from the production to their energy on stage was spot on and the fan response was overwhelming. I’m so proud of Brian and Tyler and all that they have accomplished.”

Tallying over 1.5 million concert tickets sold in 2015, this summer has seen the duo rise to even greater heights with their DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR, selling out venue after venue with a high-octane bill that also includes Kane Brown, The Cadillac Three and Cole Swindell. Fans and media alike have responded with raves and praises for the concerts, with outlets such as the Oakland Press writing that the shows are further “cementing FGL as a bona fide headliner after just two albums.”

Meanwhile, Hubbard and Kelley’s latest single “H.O.L.Y” has now been at #1 for 12 weeks on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and also reached the top spot at Country radio, marking their 11th #1 hit as artists and songwriters. The song is the first taste of the boundary-pushing duo’s third studio album, DIG YOUR ROOTS, which is set for release August 26 on Big Machine Label Group and features collaborations with Tim McGraw, Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley.

Since breaking out in 2012 with the mega smash “Cruise,” FGL have solidified their place as one of the elite acts in Country music, earning prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT. Their previous releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales nearing 26 million tracks, over 3.5 million albums worldwide and RIAA DIAMOND-certification for “Cruise,” solidifying the hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies. Their massive debut also overtook the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Florida Georgia Line Puts Anti-Police Rumors to Rest

florida georgia line

Florida Georgia Line is busy fending off you rumors that they don’t like the cops. According to TMZ, Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver said he was headed backstage Saturday night at the Great Jones County Fair to discuss security protocol with the band when he was stopped by a crew member and told no uniformed officers were allowed backstage, per the band, even going as far as saying the band threatened to pull the concert if any police were spotted.

The band then requested a police escort out of town which they were denied. Wisconsin police reportedly said the same thing at a show a week earlier.

Now the band’s rep is saying it’s all a misunderstanding. The band allows the venue to take care of security so local police are told their help isn’t necessary.

History-making duo Florida Georgia Line is once again on top as “H.O.L.Y.” takes the #1 spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase charts this week. The lead single from DIG YOUR ROOTS – arriving August 26 on Big Machine Label Group – has also dominated the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 11 weeks. “H.O.L.Y.” marks FGL’s eleventh #1 collectively as artists and songwriters.

“From the college guys we were when ‘Cruise’ came out to starting our families, it’s been really cool to see our fans and radio embrace the music BK and I make,” said Tyler Hubbard. “‘H.O.L.Y.’ is personally so special to us … thank you to everyone who took it to the top!”

FGL continues to unveil new phases musically across the 15 genre-defying tracks on their third studio album, giving listeners a richer look into their lives and influences. The pair penned over half of the songs and recorded with veteran producer Joey Moi, who stands firm at the helm of FGL’s sound. The award-winning duo collaborated with Superstar artists Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and Ziggy Marley on the forthcoming project. Fans who pre-order DIG YOUR ROOTS via http://smarturl.it/DigYourRoots will receive an immediate download of “Smooth” and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw).

“Tyler and I have been beyond blessed to have so much support throughout our career and are continually grateful when these moments happen,” adds Brian Kelley. “Here’s to digging a little deeper and soaring even higher with our fans every night out on the road!”

Notching over 1.5 million tickets sold in 2015 alone, FGL continues the successful streak with heavily sold-out crowds during their headline DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR, further “cementing FGL as a bona fide headliner after just two albums” (Oakland Press). Throughout the end of 2016, The Cadillac Three, Cole Swindell and Kane Brown will join the high-octane pair.

Since breaking out in 2012 with the mega smash “Cruise,” FGL have solidified their place as one of the elite acts in Country music, earning prestigious honors from the AMA, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT. Their previous releases – 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and PLATINUM ANYTHING GOES – have attributed to sales nearing 26 million tracks, over 3.5 million albums worldwide and RIAA DIAMOND-certification for “Cruise,” solidifying the hit as the only Country single to ever reach sales of over 10 million copies.
