Republic Nashville’s rising country rock duo Florida Georgia Line – comprised of Tyler Hubbard from Monroe, Georgia and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida – will make their Grand Ole Opry debut this Friday, August 17. On the historic stage, FGL will perform their top-selling debut single “Cruise” which is quickly climbing up the charts and was the second most added song to country radio playlists nationwide last week.
“It is an honor to play the Opry and to stand on such a legendary stage. I’m excited for my family to be able to experience this with me,” said Tyler Hubbard.
For Brian Kelley, “Playing the Opry is a dream come true! It’s at the top of our musical bucket list and I can’t wait to share this moment with our friends, family and fans!”
FGL will join Joe Diffie, Riders In The Sky, John Conlee and Ricky Skaggs, in Friday’s lineup, which begins at 7:00 PM.
Since releasing “Cruise,” FGL has been quickly garnering buzz among fans and media alike. With infectious lyrics and a buoyant melody, the single has sold well over 200,000 copies in just four months and is listed in the Top 25 for sales in many major markets. They bring a fresh sound to the genre and beyond, combining electrifying, hard-driving rock with honest, expressive lyrics. “Cruise” is featured on their EP It’z Just What We Do produced by Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Nickelback). FGL’s energetic live show and compelling tunes have gained the attention of headlining acts; Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert, and the annual Country Throwdown Tour previously selected them for coveted opening slots nationwide. A major fall tour announcement will be made later this month.
