Republic Nashville’s new hot duo Florida-Georgia Line played to over 10,000 rowdy country fans during Florida State University’s annual “Friday Night Block Party” in downtown Tallahassee at Kleman Plaza. The show was a bit of a homecoming for the group’s Brian Kelley, who is a Florida native and attended FSU before transferring to Belmont to pursue his music career (where he there met his band mate Tyler Hubbard).
Brian smiled as he shared:
“This definitely goes down as the best FSU block party I ever attended!”
Their high energy performance was talked about by the local media and radio as the perfect way to kick off the “official tailgate event”. WTNT PM Drive Host & Music Director Woody Hayes was raving about the duo’s show, saying:
“It was incredible way for 94-9 TNT to kick off the opening weekend of the season! FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE absolutely WOWed the crowd and they were non-stop on stage, bringing a tremendous energy to the event! Just because they’re a new act, don’t let that fool you, the crowd was singing to every song! 94-9 TNT was proud to have them play an acoustic lunch for the staff as well earlier in the day as well. Look out, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE is for real!”
Monroe, Georgia’s Tyler Hubbard and Ormond Beach, Florida’s Brian Kelley have been engaging their growing fanbase at headlining shows as well as previous opening dates for Brantley Gilbert and the Country Throwdown Tour. FGL has already sold out two shows in Illinois – The Copper Dragon in Carbondale on September 14 and Joe’s Bar in Chicago on September 28 (a rarity for the popular venue). With these touring milestones, it’s no surprise that they’ve also earned a coveted spot on the “CMT On Tour” with headliner Jake Owen, which will kick off in New York on October 10.
