Florida-Georgia Line has country’s highest debut album of 2012
Florida Georgia Line has been heating up the music scene – and just this week – earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new Country artist with nearly 63,000 copies of “HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES.” The debut project on Republic Nashville entered the sales charts at #3 on the Billboard Country Albums and #10 on the Billboard Top 200.
In other Florida-Georgia Line news, the duo performed their smash hit single “Cruise” live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. This morning, they stopped by FOX & Friends to play the breakout smash, which has spent two consecutive weeks at #1 on Country radio charts and is the #1 best-selling single for Country this week.
Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, Florida) and Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, Georgia) worked with producer Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Nickelback) on their 11-track project, which showcases FGL’s eclectic mix of influences ranging from country to hip-hop.
After selling out every date on the CMT Tour with headliner Jake Owen over the last few months, FGL will hit the road again in January 2013 with Luke Bryan’s “Dirt Road Diaries Tour.” Their energetic stage presence and infectious lyrics have earned the attention of fans and Superstars – Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland) and Dierks Bentley – alike.
Check out the picture of the group below from last night’s appearance and let us know what you think of this new country duo:
