Florida Georgia Line Bring The Heat & An Incredible Line Up to Long Island, NY

The 95-degree weather did not stop Long Island’s country music fans from coming to Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday night to see the Can’t Say I Ain’t Country tour containing its star-studded lineup of HARDY, Canaan Smith, Morgan Wallen, Dan + Shay and headliners, Florida Georgia Line.

HARDY Florida Georgia Line Tour

HARDY was first up. His 15-minute set included songs such as “4X4”, “ALL SHE LEFT WAS ME” and his break-out hit, “REDNECKER”. HARDY also performed Blake Shelton’s “God’s Country”, a song which he wrote for Shelton with Devin Dawson and Jordan Schmidt. The song has been number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart for the past two weeks.

Canaan Smith Florida Georgia Line Tour

Canaan Smith performed in between sets. The singer-songwriter released his first studio album Bronco in 2015 which featured “Love You Like That”; a track that hit number one on the Country Airplay chart and was certified platinum. He performed that one along with some of his new, unreleased music, including “Country Boy Things”, “Poor Decisions” and “Beer Drinking Weather”.

Morgan Wallen, who came out wearing his signature cut-sleeve plaid shirt and rocking his long, flowing mullet, began his set with three up-beat, drinking songs in “Whatcha Know ‘Bout That”, “Happy Hour” and his number one, certified platinum smash hit “Up Down”. After performing his first single “The Way I Talk”, Wallen slowed it down and sang “Chasin’ You”, his next single to country radio. “Life ain’t always a party….sometimes life sucks a little bit, you know? I think music is supposed to get you through the partying and through the times that piss you off.” Wallen closed his set with “If I Know Me”, the title track off his debut album and then a crowd favorite “Whiskey Glasses”. Everyone in the audience was singing along to his most recent number one hit, which warmed up the fans for the next act, Dan + Shay.

Morgan Wallen Florida Georgia Line Tour

Dan + Shay performed seven songs from their self-titled third album in their eleven song set. The Grammy-winning duo began with four of them including “Alone Together”, “All To Myself”, “What Keeps You Up at Night” and “Make or Break”.  “We got the hottest day in New York at Jones Beach and we appreciate you coming out early” Dan Smyers admired the lively audience. “We saw you guys in the parking lot, getting s**t started. From the minute we walked on stage, left to right, front to back, all the way up in the bleachers…you’ve been on your feet. Jones Beach, thank you so much! We love you, we love you, we love you!”

 The 2019 ACM and Billboard country duo of the year covered all three albums through the next four songs: “Nothing Like You” from 2014’s Where It All Began, “Keeping Score” from Dan + Shay and “From the Ground Up” and “How Not To” from 2016’s Obsessed.  Before “Speechless” a computerized voice instructed the fans to take out the flashlights on their phones for the next song. The crowd lit up Jones Beach as Smyers and Shay Mooney performed their award-winning ballad.

After “19 You + Me”, Smyers addressed the audience again, praising the energy they brought to the set. “The next three and a half minutes could be the loudest of the whole tour. Can we make it happen?” The duo performed their triple-platinum, Grammy award-winning, ACM Single and Song of the Year, “Tequila” to close the set and get the fans ready for the headliners, Florida Georgia Line.

When the curtains came down the fans were exposed to the decorative stage put together by the FGL crew. The country duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were sitting on ATVs with a barn displayed on the screen behind them and an inflatable wood silo/water tower prop with “FGL” written on it; fitting the Can’t Say I Ain’t Country theme. Five of FGL’s first seven songs were from their new album, including “Colorado”, “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country”, “Y’all Boys”, “Speed of Love” and “Can’t Hide Red”. “Cruise and “Confession” were featured in between. Before “Speed of Love”, the silo was taken down to enlarge the screen, which showed highlights of NASCAR races.

Florida Georgia Line, along with The Independence Fund, has been presenting wounded warriors with specialized wheelchairs at each stop of the tour. Saturday night was no different as the duo brought veteran, Kevin Miller of the Army National Guard on the stage after performing “Dirt”. This influenced the crowd to begin a USA chant and instilled patriotism throughout the venue.

After “Anything Goes”, FGL brought Canaan Smith back out to help them sing “Get Your Shine On” from their debut album Here’s To the Good Times. Just like during “Speechless”, the crowd lit up the sky by shining their flashlights to the 2013 party anthem. Hubbard told the fans that people have complained to him about how all of Florida Georgia Line’s songs are about partying, drinking, tailgating, fishing, etc. His response was “Well, hell yeah. What do you want us to sing about? But then we look at those people and say ‘hold on, you must’ve not listened to the new album because you know we did make a baby-making song.’ You know it does work really, really well; twice for me. So be careful with this one, Jones Beach.” “Talk You Out Of It” was next on the setlist.

Hubbard took a seat near the piano to perform the 2017 Billboard top country song and lead single off their third album Dig Your Roots “H.O.L.Y.” Dan + Shay came back out on stage to sing this with FGL, which caused an uproar of the fans. Mooney’s stunning ­­­tenor voice mashed with Hubbard’s southern twang created a beautiful rendition of this award-winning love song. Catch a snippet of the collaboration by clicking here.

After “May We All”, Morgan Wallen came back out on stage to sing “Up Down” again, this time with FGL. The stage went dark for a while when lights descended down from atop the stage, resembling the final scene of the music video for “Simple”; the first of three encore songs the duo performed. Although a New York native, Bebe Rexha was not in attendance for this show so Hubbard asked the crowd if they could sing her part in the 2019 Billboard Top Country Song, “Meant To Be”. “We wanna sing a song that changed our lives and we need you guys to help us out; is that cool?” FGL performed a crowd favorite and four-time platinum, party song, “This Is How We Roll” to end a fun, electrifying night at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater.

The Can’t Say I Ain’t Country tour will head south to Virginia and North Carolina next weekend. For those who live in upstate, NY, the tour will be stopping in Syracuse on August 15th and at Darien Lake on August 24th.

Florida Georgia Line Tries to Persuade Jimmy Fallon To Be Special Guests

It has been a busy two weeks for Florida Georgia Line as they have been everywhere promoting their new album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country that came out on Friday, February 15th. The country duo performed “Talk You Out Of It” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 14th, and just twelve days later, they were back to perform ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­“Colorado.”

This visit on the Tonight Show was much different than their last, as it seemed to be more of a comedy sketch than a musical performance. During the performance, the camera cut to Fallon standing on the side of the stage when a person supposedly named Jasper Hogs introduces himself to Fallon; he says he is with Big Loud Management, FGL’s record label. He explains to Fallon that this is the boys’ sixth time performing on the show and they should be guest stars, not just the musical act. Fallon tells him to talk to the booker which angers Hogs.

“We come here six times, no couch; just a big, old, fat slice of ‘talk to the booker’”, rants Hogs. “Those boys have stories to tell on that couch! I’d hate to see them start shopping their wares elsewhere.”

Fallon then hurried away to shake Hubbard’s and Kelley’s hands on stage and to tell the audience their new album is out now. Hubbard and Kelley also began to antagonize Fallon about getting a spot on the couch. “I had sushi for the first time last night,” Kelley whispered in Fallon’s ear, in a joking attempt to get him to bring them on as guests. “I actually didn’t think I was going to like it…but I loved it.”

“Maybe we should talk on the couch sometime. I think the couch needs us, Jimmy,” Hubbard told Fallon before they cut to commercial. “We’re family, Jimmy. We’re family.”

This comedy bit on The Tonight Show adds to the long list of events the boys have done to promote the album. They began this mini promotion tour performing a small show at the iHeartRadio Theater in NYC on Friday, February 15th. After that, the two flew across the country to play a show hosted by Spotify at the historic Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on February 19th. They also appeared on Ellen last Thursday to sing “Talk You Out Of It” and were surprised that Ellen planned to help them find out the gender of the new Hubbard baby. That gender reveal can be seen below!

From the title track, all the way down the album to “Blessings”, it seems every song has the potential to become a big hit. “Colorado” was released along with “Simple” on June 1st, 2018. Hopefully, we will see it live on tour this summer!

Can’t Say I Ain’t Country has already sold over 300,000 copies.  You can catch Florida Georgia Line at Jones Beach on July 20th with Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen and HARDY. The presale for their tour is on sale now for FGL Lifers. Individual tickets for the general public go on sale this Friday, head to http://www.floridageorgialine.com/ for more information and ticket links.

Florida Georgia Line Celebrate Album Release in NYC

Florida Georgia Line

This past Friday (Feb. 15), multi-platinum-selling country duo Florida Georgia Line spent the day promoting their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, throughout New York City.
We first caught the guys during their exclusive in-studio Nash FM 94.7 interview with host Kelly Ford in the early afternoon, which aired on Nash FM over the weekend. The superstar duo discussed the process of making the record, along with backstories behind a few of the songs, which Ford hand-picked. “Talk You Out Of It,” “Swerve” and “Speed Of Love” were among Ford’s favorites. The radio host continued to compliment Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley on their entrepreneurship with all three of their businesses; their Nashville bar, FGL House, their whiskey brand, Old Camp Whiskey and BK’s clothing brand, Tribe Kelley. Ending the interview, Hubbard and Kelley gave everyone in the audience a physical copy of the new album as a thank you for supporting them over the years.

Later that evening, the duo teamed up with iHeartRadio for an official intimate album release party held at the iHeartRadio theater. The two superstars performed an hour-long set, along with a special question and answer portion, hosted by Brooke Taylor.

Florida Georgia Line

Kelley and Hubbard opened up about the album’s title, their choice of featured artists on the record and who Brother Jervel is. When asked about why they named the album ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’, Hubbard took the lead and revealed it started with the album’s title track, telling fans it became Kelley’s idea to title the album the same name. The duo continued to explain how they came to choose each collaboration for the record, “Everybody that’s on our album in the collaborations, it just fit perfect. It was really organic. We wrote a song called “Women” with Jason Derulo out in L.A. a couple years ago and there was no chance his voice wasn’t going to be on that one. We left it, already sounded amazing, and we already had a vision of what it was going to sound like. And Jason Aldean, he answered back real quick and said, ‘Hey. I’ll hop on with y’all. That’s sounds amazing. Love the song.’ And HARDY is somebody, one of those young guns. We love him and couldn’t be more proud of him. He’s a rock star. He’s a hell of a songwriter and also a heck of an artist, too. So we kind of go by the song and imagine who we hear and who fits naturally and just kind of put out feelers.”

Hubbard revealed the man behind the character Brother Jervel who is featured in the four skits on the album. Brother Jervel is one of their longtime friends, whose real name is Chris. Chris would leave the guys funny voicemails and it sparked the idea of creating skits to set up some songs on the record.

The superstar duo performed five songs from Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, four of them being for the very first time, including “Colorado,” “People Are Different,” “Swerve” and “Y’all Boys.” They also performed the album’s lead single “Simple,” along with their record-breaking hit collaboration with Bebe Rexha, “Meant to Be” and tailgating tune with Morgan Wallen, “Up Down.”

Florida Georgia Line

Hubbard and Kelley couldn’t end the night without a few shots of their very own whiskey (of course) and performing their crowd-favorite hits, “H.O.L.Y.,” “Anything Goes,” “Round Here,” “This Is How We Roll” and the song that got it all started for them, “Cruise.”

Florida Georgia Line will hit the road this summer for their ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour’ with Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen, HARDY and Canaan Smith. New Yorkers can catch the show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Saturday, July 20th. Visit http://www.floridageorgialine.com for all ticketing information.
Can’t Say I Ain’t Country is now available everywhere you stream or buy music.

To celebrate the release of their newest album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, platinum-selling duo, Florida Georgia Line is in New York City to promote their record. Their first stop included performing their hit “Talk You Out of It” on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ at midnight.

Host Fallon excitedly announced the duo’s performance, just before they took the stage. Record in hand he shared, “Performing “Talk You Out of It.” from their new album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, out now! Give it up for Florida Georgia Line.”

With a hazy and steamy looking backdrop and a peek of their band, the duo took front and center. Hubbard’s smooth and sultry vocals were evident as he began to sing the first verse of the song, while Kelley’s harmonies and unique swagger added to the performance. As a nod to their love of blending sounds and different genres together, the duo blended their fashion as well, with Kelley dressed in a cowboy hat and denim, and Hubbard donning a more hip-hop inspired look. Whatever the case, their signature fashion and vocal style were on full display during the entire performance. The boys embodied the essence of the music video for “Talk You Out of It” perfectly. They ended their performance thanking the audience, who immediately erupted into applause. Check out the clip below to see for yourself.

Fans can catch Florida Georgia Line on their ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour’ kicking off this summer, accompanied by Dan + Shay and Morgan Wallen, as well as, special guests, HARDY and Cannan Smith at select shows.

NYCS First Impression: Florida Georgia Line ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’

Can't Say I Ain't Country

Platinum-selling country duo, Florida Georgia Line have officially released their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country. The LP features collaborations by country singers, Jason Aldean and HARDY, as well as, reuniting the duo with Jason Derulo on one of the nineteen tracks. On Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, Hubbard and Kelley continue to explore their signature sound and their mutual love of multiple genres of music, and it evident from start to finish.

The record opens with the title track, which sets the tone for the rest of the album. The song explores the criticism that Florida Georgia Line often hear, that their sound does not fit the country music mold. In typical Florida Georgia Line fashion, the boys push back, delivering the definitive country jam. Both the lyrics and the instrumentals give fans the country flavor that they are often accused of missing. “You can say I’m a redneck / You can say you don’t like my truck / You can say that I talk and I dress all funny / But you can’t say I ain’t country.”

One of the best examples of their ability to blend genres is “Talk You Out of It,” which was one of the songs released a few months ago. The track melds R&B influences with Hubbard and Kelley’s voices effortlessly. It is sexy, sultry, and super catchy. The song showcases their love for infusing different genres into their music in the best light. In the same vein, their track with Jason Derulo, “Women,” is a refreshing love letter to all women, mentioning that “we’re all better off with them right by our side.” Derulo is the perfect collaborator for this song.

Another ballad featured on the album is their final track entitled “Blessings.” The song has the same feel as past hits, “Dirt” and “God, Your Mama, and Me.” Hubbard and Kelley pour their hearts out, as they sing the sentimental lyrics. The arrangement is simple, focusing on their story-telling lyrics and their beautiful harmonies. It is clear that the duo drew inspiration from their relationships with their wives when they helped write this track. “I can’t count them on one hand / But when I look there on your finger / I say I’m a lucky man / God made two lovers out of strangers / Little house on a little land / A little creek, a little jeep / Same old moon that everybody sees / It sure ain’t hard to count your blessings.”

For fans who love Florida Georgia Line for their fun party tracks, don’t worry, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, has some good ones! The uptempo, “Y’all Boys” featuring rising country singer, HARDY is going to be the perfect addition to their live setlist. The cheeky song is as country as it gets, and will make a perfect tailgate song. Charming and catchy “Y’all Boys” will most definitely be a summer anthem in no time. Although more of a mid-tempo vibe, Florida Georgia Line’s collaboration with country superstar, Jason Aldean, “Can’t Hide Red” is sure to be an instant hit as well. The track showcases their southern pride, mixed with some hip-hop flavor. The song will have everyone singing and dancing along from the first listen.

Although we love the party songs, Florida Georgia Line really shine on tracks like “People Are Different” and “Sittin’ Pretty.” Both songs focus on the creative lyrics, show off Hubbard and Kelley’s song-writing skills and display honest messages that fans are sure to identify with.

Overall Florida Georgia Line deliver a solid record with Can’t Say I Ain’t Country. Hubbard and Kelley embrace their country roots throughout each of the tracks, while still staying true to their signature sound. The album is unapologetically Florida Georgia Line, and that is what makes it special.

Can’t Say I Ain’t Country is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.

Make sure to catch Florida Georgia Line this summer, on their ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country’ tour, featuring Dan + Shay, and Morgan Wallen, with special guests, HARDY and Cannan Smith at select shows.

FGL and HARDY Duet on New Country Anthem “Y’all Boys”

Florida Georgia Line and HARDY Y'all Boys

Photo Credit: Robby Klein

As of midnight February 8th, Florida Georgia Line gave fans another reason to be excited for their new album by debuting “Y’all Boys” off their upcoming fourth studio record Can’t Say I Ain’t Country. The song, penned by Michael Hardy, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, and Brett Tyler “Y’all Boys” features Hardy and is the ultimate tribute to being a true down home country boy.

And don’t worry, if you do not know how a real country boy lives, Florida Georgia Line and Hardy explain it to us in the up-tempo chorus “Y’all boys with that Southern drawl boys, hell before ya naw rollin’ off just right / Man that town is small boys but you have a ball boys / Homemade alcohol on a Saturday night.”

That is not before humoring us and saying what exactly a country boy is not with lyrics “Well there’s those boys, got the kind of ride/Get fifty-five to the gallon/They listen to that new school/Never heard of George or Alan.” But even if you don’t know George Strait or Alan Jackson, don’t be offended as it is all good and fun as they say they “ain’t hatin’ on the boys.”

“Y’all Boys” is sure to be a rowdy sing-along anthem for the guys, that many can relate to. Florida Georgia Line’s highly anticipated album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country will be released February 15th and is available for preorder now. They are hitting the road in June along with special guests Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen, and Hardy and Canaan Smith on select dates for the ‘Can’t Say I Ain’t Country Tour’.

Florida Georgia Line Releases “Women” Featuring Jason Derulo

“Starting out the only one you love is mama / Then you start growin’ up and wonderin’ / What made the girls start gettin’ pretty / Then you start carin’ ’bout how you’re lookin’ / Anything it takes to get ’em lookin’ / Thinkin’, “Damn, I gotta get one with me”

FGL Jason DeRulo

Florida Georgia Line released their sixth song from their upcoming fourth album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country today called “Women”. In this track, FGL along with featured pop-star, Jason Derulo sing about women’s impact on them and how they are “the reason we’re livin’ and lovin’ this life.”

Derulo’s countertenor singing voice mixed with Hubbard’s southern twang makes this one of FGL’s most beautiful ballads to date. Florida Georgia Line got their start with tailgate hits such as “Cruise”, “Round Here”, “Anything Goes”, “Sun Daze” along with many others. However, since both Kelley and Hubbard were wed (2013 and 2015 respectively) they seemed to have changed their style of music. The Dig Your Roots album had many of these slow, love songs such as “Grow Old”, “Island”, “God, Your Mama and Me” and of course their hit single “H.O.L.Y.”. We can expect to see more ballads from them in the future.  

BK and Tyler are no strangers to collaborations with pop stars, performing in the past with Nelly, Hailee Steinfeld, The Backstreet Boys and most recently, Bebe Rexha as their song “Meant to Be” went on to last 50 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

This is not Derulo’s first song with the boys of FGL. In 2014, Derulo was featured on the remix version of “This is How We Roll”. Derulo has more experience in country music as he performed with Luke Bryan on “CMT Crossroads” singing hits such as “Country Girl”, “Strip it Down”, “Kick the Dust Up”, and his own “Talk Dirty to Me”.

Can’t Say I Ain’t Country comes out February 15th and the boys hit the road with Dan + Shay, and Morgan Wallen starting June 13th, with Canaan Smith and Hardy joining select shows. They will be in the New York City area on July 20th at Jones Beach. Grab your tickets here.

Country Artists Perform on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve went from seeing country stars performing in the pouring rain in Times Square to staying dry in Hollywood and New Orleans. Ryan Seacrest, Jenny McCarthy, Lucy Hale, and Ciara were the hosts throughout the night from coast to coast keeping us on our toes with all the performers to come.

Early on Dan + Shay performed their track “All To Myself” and their smash hit “Tequila” braving it out in the rain during their performance. Confetti dropping and the wet conditions didn’t stop the duo from having the time of their lives in rainy Times Square. Next, with Florida Georgia Line’s anticipating album Can’t Say I Ain’t Country due out on Feb. 15th, the duo performed their single “Simple” and their hit “Cruise” in New Orleans just ten minutes before the ball dropped. Along with FGL in New Orleans, Maren Morris took the stage with her hit “The Middle” that was a massive part of her and radio’s 2018.

After the ball dropped and the clock struck midnight, Kelsea Ballerini came out singing her new sassy-single “Miss Me More.” Ballerini had an incredible year and dropping this girl power anthem was just a taste of what’s to come for her in 2019. Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina sang their no. 1 duet “What Ifs,” then later Brown performed his new single “Lose It.”

It was a night full of country music on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve which certainly leads us to believe that 2019 will be a successful and promising year to come for the genre!
