Canaan Smith & Tyler Hubbard Get Aboard Jason Aldean’s “Night Train”


It’s no secret to country fans that Jason Aldean’s new album, Night Train, hit stores today. However, fans may be surprised to learn that one of the album’s tracks “Black Tears” was penned by Mercury singer/songwriter Canaan Smith and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard. 

“I wrote this song with Tyler one day back in college at Belmont,” Smith says. “I never thought it would be cut by someone as great as Jason Aldean.” He adds “I think he did a killer job. I respect Jason’s ability to stretch himself and push the envelope as far as songs and production go.”

The love-fest was mutual. In an interview for Billboard magazine, Aldean praised the track, saying, “Honestly, I think it’s one of the most well-written songs on the record. Like ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ and songs like that, it allows us to branch off in a different direction and try something new.”

Make sure to grab this track and the rest of Night Train, available everywhere today!

Florida Georgia Line Lace Up Their Boots in Support of the Troops


Country newcomers Florida Georgia Line are proud to join forces with the Boot Campaign in support of the troops. The duo, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, have pledged their commitment to the cause by putting on their own combat boots to literally “take a walk in a soldier’s shoes.”

For the band, this is a cause that hits close to home. “Anything that we can do to help our soldiers past, present and future and their families, we are thankful to be a part of. This cause really hits close to home; my uncle and cousin both served overseas and my grandfather was awarded two purple hearts during his active duty. We are proud to be a part of The Boot Campaign and thrilled to have them on the road with us for the Country Throwdown Tour. We hope to see all the country fans at the show put their boots on and join us in supporting our veterans as they return home,” says Kelley.

Florida Georgia Line is in good company, as other celebrity supporters of the Boot Campaign include Dolly Parton, The Rock, FX’s Cast of Sons Of Anarchy, Troy Aikman, Brantley Gilbert, Eli Young Band, George Jones and Gary Allan. Supporters of the cause purchase boots, with all proceeds going to military charities, to put on in order to “symbolically walk in the shoes of our military men and women to remember their service and sacrifice.”

Florida Georgia Line is currently speeding up the charts with their debut single “Cruise,” from their new EP It’z Just What We Do. For more information on Florida Georgia Line and tour dates, visit www.FloridaGeorgiaLine.com.
