Florida Georgia Line Lands 17th Number 1 with “I Love My Country”
Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have transformed themselves from a country duo to bonafide megastars. They are singers, songwriters, entertainers, performers, and even own their own record label. As if this year couldn’t go any better for them, FGL scored their 17th career chart-topper with their single “I Love My Country” just this week.
With over one hundred million total global streams in just six months, the song joins the likes of their smash hits “Cruise,” “This Is How We Roll,” and the unforgettable collaboration with Bebe Rexha “Meant To Be,” among many others. Originally penned by Corey Crowder with Ernest Keith Smith and Ryan Vojtesak, later credit was also given to superstar, Kane Brown and co-writers Chase McGill and Will Weatherly.
“It’s just made us feel so good and gave us so much joy,” explained Hubbard in a recent press release, “Considering the time that we’re living in right now, with everyone quarantined and maybe living in a little bit of fear, it felt like a song that could help bring us a little light to people.”
Clearly fans felt like this song was exactly what they needed. The feel-good jam will definitely not be FGL’s last song to hit the top spot on the charts. It will be interesting to see what single they will bring to country radio next.
If you are loving all things FGL, make sure to watch them vie for Duo of the Year at the 55th ACM Awards taking place live from various locations in Nashville on September 16th. Additionally, announced just this morning (Sept 1.), the guys were also nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 54th Annual CMA Awards on November 11th.
