Florida Georgia Line Release “New Truck” Ahead of Forthcoming Album

Florida Georgia Line’s new song, “New Truck” is available now, January 8th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

Off their upcoming fifth studio album Life Rolls On, Florida Georgia Line’s latest release, “New Truck,” is co-written by Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, along with Corey Crowder, Jeff Gitelman, Raysean Hairston, Blake Redferrin, and Priscilla Renea. This track could fall into the ‘trap country’ genre as Hubbard and Kelley rap the verses over a thumping bass beat. The playful tune is a catchy song that is fun to sing along to and will certainly become a fan-favorite when live shows return. It also comes along with a comical, retro-themed video. Check it out above.

“With “New Truck” we were like, ‘Man, this feels good. I just want to ride around in my truck, listen to this, and have a song to jam to,’” Hubbard shared in a recent press release. “When any of our buddies get a new truck now, we can send it to them and say, ‘Yo, bump this in the truck!’”

Florida Georgia Line’s New Song “New Truck” is available now

I got a new truck (Yup), I got a new ride (Woah) / I got it souped-up (Yup), I like it too high (Skrrt) / I got a new truck (Yup), I got a new ride (Woah) / Shawty wanna ride shotty when I roll by (Yup)

The release of this energetic song is not the only reason Florida Georgia Line made headlines in early 2021. In a post to their fans, The six-time ACM award-winning duo announced that they will be focusing on music outside of Florida Georgia Line after the release of Life Rolls On, but ensured they are not “breaking up.” Rumors began swirling when Hubbard and Kelley unfollowed each other on Instagram in the midst of the presidential election.

Hubbard later confirmed those reports were false and the only reason for the temporary unfollowing was to due political differences. The two acknowledged the rumors and refuted them in their announcement video. Kelley admitted he always had aspirations of putting out a solo album, and Hubbard revealed he will be collaborating with other artists in the near future, including Tim McGraw on a new song titled “Undivided” out this Wednesday, January 13th.

“We’ve been on a 10-year journey together and we wouldn’t change it for the world,” Hubbard said in the video. “We’re going to continue to make music as much we can—as a matter of fact, we’re probably going to be making even more music now. We created this freedom around ourselves where we can do whatever we want to do, creatively and musically….It’s a beautiful place to venture out and have a voice of our own and have an individuality.”

Fans have nothing to worry about as Hubbard and Kelley left the door very open for future Florida Georgia Line projects. They also promised they will continue to tour together and play all the hits that made them not only the most popular duo in the 2010s, but one of the most colorful acts in country music as a whole.

Life Rolls On drops on February 12th, and will feature the six songs on The 6-Pack EP and their current top-20 single, “Long Live.” Hubbard and Kelley helped produce all sixteen songs with Corey Crowder and co-wrote thirteen of them. See the track listing below:

Florida Georgia Line Receive St. Jude “Angels Among Us” Award

Superstar duo Florida Georgia Line received the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s “Angels Among Us” Award during a special livestream presentation today (October 15th).

The livestream, themed “We Won’t Stop,” is an annual celebration of partners affiliated with the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® radio program.

St. Jude, located in Memphis, Tennessee is a research hospital for children battling cancer and other deadly diseases. Perhaps the most special part about the organization is, thanks to very generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food. Families receive the best care in the country, at no cost, making the worst and darkest days of their lives a little bit brighter – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Not only is St. Jude currently taking care of patients within its own doors but its research facility and labs are open 24/7 and freely share their findings with hospitals and doctors across the country. They are working towards a world where no family ever has to hear the words “you have cancer”.

Launched more than 30 years ago, Randy Owen from the band Alabama stood up during Country Radio Seminar in Nashville and asked his friends, colleagues, and radio partners to join together to help St. Jude and the children they serve, and so, “Country Cares for St. Jude Kids” was born. The program unites more than 200 radio stations and dozens of country music artists annually to raise awareness and support for St. Jude kids.

In addition, Owen, who has been an example of compassion and support since the beginning, kick-started the beloved tradition of giving the “Angels Among Us” award to others who have shown his spirit and exceptional dedication to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

As Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line receive the award this year, the organization recognizes their generosity and passion for serving the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®

The 17-time chart-topping, multi-platinum duo have supported St. Jude families for many years. In addition to their involvement in the This Shirt Saves Lives campaign since 2017, they’ve also orchestrated several special moments with St. Jude patients. One prime example of this is when they surprised a patient on stage in 2018, leading a crowd of more than 1,500 fans in singing the “No More Chemo” song to him – in celebration of his last round of chemotherapy. Another example is just last year when FGL added a surprise tour stop at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during their “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour.” The special event attracted a record crowd of patient families for an on-campus event, giving them a day to look forward to and a reminder that they are not alone.

St. Jude We Won't Stop Tee

This year, following the St. Jude “This Shirt Saves Lives” campaign, the organization introduces the “We Won’t Stop” tee. For a monthly donation of just $19, you can get the exclusive tee and help support this incredible program. It costs over a million dollars daily to operate St. Jude each and every day. Donations are what keeps them able to help children suffering. To donate and get your own “We Won’t Stop” t-shirt head to www.stjude.org.

Florida Georgia Line Release Brand New Single “Long Live”

After recently dropping the 6-Pack EP in May, the 2020 ACM and CMA nominated Duo of the Year, Florida Georgia Line wasted no time releasing new material with a song titled “Long Live.” Both Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley co-wrote the toast-raising track alongside their good friends, Corey Crowder, David Garcia, and Josh Miller. The duo also co-produced the track along with Corey Crowder.

Backed by a string-heavy production, this new track has “Here’s to the Good Times” vibes as Hubbard and Kelley pay homage to the southern way of life. In the chorus, the two list all the aspects of small-town life they never want to change.

“Long live all the small-towners, sun-up and sun-downers, and old school Haggard and Hank / Love live long-neck bottles, and wide-open throttles, and old dirt roads with no names / Long live them country girls, long live them cut-up jeans / Long live this way of life, long live nights like these”

The duo’s latest single, “I Love My Country,” hit number one the week of August 31st, marking their 17th chart-topping song. Fans can catch them perform it live at the 55th ACM Awards on Wednesday (9/16) at 8/7c on CBS.

Kicking off our very first of a #TBT Series, we bring you this week’s find – “Getting’ Down In A Pirate Town.”

The setting is the streets of Downtown Nashville, in June of 2011. Jesse Rice, Chase Rice, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are standing on a street corner singing a song they wrote as part of a coastal-inspired album after taking a trip down to the Florida Keys.  This video, taken a year before the four songwriters hit big with “Cruise” features four friends before their lives changed forever.  (Cue the chills.)

The track along with 15 other beachy, Carribean themed songs can be found here on Jesse Rice’s first installment of The Pirate Sessions.
