Florida Georgia Line’s “Smooth” year was full of successes

It has been quite a year for Florida Georgia Line with their wildly popular “Smooth Tour” selling out stadiums and reaching more than a million fans.

They have also reached outside the genre for killer collaborations with Bebe Rexha (“Meant To Be”), the Chainsmokers (“Last Day Alive”), Backstreet Boys (“God, Your Mama, and Me”), and recently Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, and Watt (“Let Me Go”). They were co-writers on Jason Aldean’s chart-topping “Lights Come On” and their hit “H.O.L.Y.” spent 18 weeks atop “Billboard’s” Hot Country Songs chart.

The multiple award winners were also the subject of an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame. And if that weren’t enough, they opened their first restaurant and bar in Nashville, FGL House, which is fast becoming an industry hotspot and expanded the market for their Old Camp Whiskey brand. They also appeared with Hank Williams Jr. and Jason Derulo for the high-energy “Monday Night Football” theme song on ESPN.

They’ve been busy, but haven’t forgotten what matters. In December, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are participating in a benefit for the ALS Association of Tennessee, “Shine for Susie.” And Tyler and wife Hayley are nesting and busily preparing for the birth of the first FGL baby before the end of the year.
