Florida Georgia Line’s “Smooth Tour” proved that two of country music’s biggest voices can continue to change the country music game, and bend the definitions of what a country tour can look like. Their opening acts for the run included Backstreet Boys and Nelly.
FGL sold out three stadiums this summer for the first time in their career. Those shows included one at Chicago’s historic Wrigley Field in August, along with one each at Boston’s Fenway Park and Minneapolis’ Target Field, both in July.
At the Chicago show, fans got a sweet surprise when FGL’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard brought their wives out onstage, gave them roses, and serenaded them with their smash hit “H.O.L.Y.” Tyler told their fans, “These are the ladies behind the men. They make it happen.”
The tour wrapped in October with a two-night run at Verizon Amphitheater in Alpharetta, Georgia.
